projectslogo.UP2BName: UP2B - Boosting Up School Education towards European Citizenship and Labour Market Inclusion

Early school leaving (ESL) is a multi-faced and complex problem caused by mixture of personal, social, economic, education or family-related reasons. Schools play an important role in addressing ESL but they cannot and should not work in isolation. There is a need to adopt a more flexible approach and to combine the forces of various stakeholders in the process of reducing ESL at EU level – students, parents, teachers and pedagogical staff, business sector and labour market operators, policy makers and non-formal education institutions.

UP2B objectives are:
-To enhance school attractiveness, diminishing rates of demotivation and absence and rates of ESL
-To facilitate the relationship and the transition between school and the labour market
-To increase students’ sense of citizenship by generating awareness about the labour market
-To increase the sense of European Citizenship and its core values of equity, namely concerning Gender, Minorities and Human Rights, as fundamental Educational aspects

Target groups:
• Students 12-16 y.o.
• Teachers, trainers, pedagogical staff
• School communities (managers, administrative staff; educational councellors; parents)
• Operators on the labour market


• An online platform of pedagogical resources to be fed and used by teachers

• A Manual that will highlight the relationship between multiple school subjects and a set of professions

• A Compendium with pedagogical tools related to the Citizenship and the Labour Market – short, practical and attractive activities aiming to increase the motivation and participation of the students

• An Online Compendium - ready-made digital activities to boost up the classroom environment
