Evaluation des Projekts "Abschlussquote erhöhen - Berufsfähigkeit steigern" (Evaluation of the project "Raising the rate of attaining school leaving certificate qualifications - Increasing vocational skills")
Abstract"The research report is based on the evaluation of the project 'increasing graduation quota - enhancing occupational capacities'. The model project is an attempt to increase chances on a successful transition from school to occupational training of low qualified young people. The project seeks to increase the occupational orientation, the learning motivation and practical relevance of education by establishing so called 'career starting classes', in which the students are tough separately, supervised by 'career start tutors' and attend two days of practical training a week. With regard to the two main objectives of the project - a successful graduation and transition into occupational training - the project in general has been successful. 92 per cent of the students, who have been attending the whole project have graduated from school successfully. Focusing on young people who left school after the 9th grade - which means after the project period has ended - 47 per cent of the project's participants (compared to 38 per cent of students attending a control class) have started with occupational training, which is a great success. However, the success of the project is limited by a high turn over rate. An even more important limitation results from the fact that the project has not been successful for particular groups of students: for students with good school achievements and for female students the participation in the project has been negative with respect of their chances to obtain an apprenticeship place after leaving school."
