Abstract

The author was commissioned to produce two reports. The first looked at the international literature around Early School Leaving and SEN with a particular emphasis on Europe. The second compared the literature with what is written in EU policy documents.

The findings show confusion in terminology in the literature and problems with definition of both ESL and SEN. However, despite this, there is good agreement about what kinds of things might help. Policy documents tend to focus on prevention, intervention and compensation to deal with the problem of ESL as a whole. Whereas, the literature suggests that different processes are at play that lead to ESL. This presentation will summarise the main findings and lead to a conceptual model that has been developed to advise policy makers.
