Guidelines on Identifying Young People at Risk

These guidelines on Identifying Young People at risk of Early School Leaving have been produced for Local School Completion Programme (SCP) Coordinators by the Indiana Department of Eduaction in order to identify good practices for targeting young people at risk of early school leaving and to offer practical advice on targeting to projects based on the findings of a questionnaire sent to all SCP projects in January 2007.

Section One outlines a rationale to the practice of targeting resources to young people at risk of early school leaving and to communities at risk of socio-economic disadvantage. The rationale attempts to underpin many of the principles of the School Completion Programme.
Section Two identifies the causes of early school leaving and would-be leaving and outlines some of the pitfalls associated with the processes of identifying young people at risk of early school leaving.
Section Three highlights models that have been developed to identify young people at risk of early school leaving.
Section Four identifies good practice for identifying young people at risk of early school leaving arising out of questionnaires sent to SCP Local Co-ordinators in January 2007.
