We've realized the online project meeting of ACADAS Project.

ACADAS is a European project that aims to analyse and exchange good practices in prevention, intervention and monitoring of people with disabilities at particular risk of early school leaving (ESL) by defining what are the main dimensions in which educational systems in the EU fail, to address their needs. 

The project is promoted within the framework of ERASMUS+ 2014-2020 Programme (Key Action 2 – Exchange of good practices in the field of School Education); its total grant is € 75,950.00. 

The project start date is September 1st, 2019 with an end date of August 31st, 2021.

What is it about?

The consortium will work throughout the 24 months of the project lifetime as a peer to peer network for the analysis and compilation of good practices in terms of monitoring and prevention of ESL. Following the model of the Quintuple Helix to Innovation, ACADAS will involve different stakeholders in a participatory manner at local, regional, national and European levels. Likewise, the use of open source, the applicability of the project results and alignment with previous work area will ensure the results of ACADAS being transferable and lasting beyond the life of the Project.

From the editor :

Within the scope of the European Union Erasmus KA2 Program; We’ve realized the online project meeeting of "Do not drop me Outside" with the partners from Belgium, Portugal, Slovenia and Turkey.

During the life of the project we will develop a school dropout teacher competency framework, an online school dropout competency test for teachers and an online school dropout tendency scale for students.

Total budget of the project is 263.496,00 €

General objectives of the project is decreasing the school dropout in the partner countries in a holistic approach by developing education programs for students, online tests tools for teachers and students and increasing the teachers’ competences related to the preventing school dropout and making contribution to the related measure around Europe.

Dropout is used by the EU to describe persons who are between the ages of 12 and 23 and have not completed their education at all or who have only received secondary education (European Commission, 2006). Every sixth young person aged 18 to 24 in EU-27 still leaves school with no more than lower secondary education and participates in no kind of education or training after this point.

The children between the ages of 6 and 18 attend school as it is compulsory but some of the students are not interested in their schools. This situation can be described as a hidden school dropout.

Council Recommendation of 28 June 2011 on policies to reduce early school leaving Council recommends as a prevention policy  to reduce the risk of early school leaving before problems start. As prevention policies Council recommends: developing early-warning systems for pupils at risk, which can help to take effective measures before problems become manifest, pupils start to alienate from school, play truant or drop out.

Supporting and empowering teachers in their work with pupils at risk is a prerequisite for successful measures at school level. Initial teacher education and continuous professional development for teachers and school leaders help them to deal with diversity in the classroom, to support pupils from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds and to solve difficult teaching situations. Extra-curricular activities after and outside school and artistic, cultural and sport activities, which can raise the self-esteem of pupils at risk and increase their resilience against difficulties in their learning.

In this connection, during the life of the Project the following outputs will be produced:

Output 1 - Competence framework for teachers. This framework will define the necessary competence of teachers for tackling dropout.

Output 2 - Teacher competence test: This test for defining teachers’ competences related to the school dropout  and it will be transferred to an online platform. Then, any Teachers will be able to test their competence online,

Output 3 -Teacher Training Program: The course materials and trainings for teachers will be developed

Output 4 - School dropout tendency test for students: Inventories school dropout tendency for students will be developed  and the inventories for school dropout tendency to transferred to online platform then any school or education authority will have chance to use it on any national, regional, loca lor school level,

Output 5- Education programs for students at the risk of dropout will be produced.

Target groups:

The first target group of the project are teachers (IO1, IO2, IO3) who can be more successful by attending professional solutions than individual solutions, and who need practical tools to detect the students who are at the risk of hidden or apparent dropout, who need to know how they can handle the situation of the dropout and what the innovative methods to prevent it, and who also need training.


The other target group are the students (IO4 and IO5) who are at the risk of school dropout, who need better quality of learning process and conditions. The factors that influence their dropout should be defined and eliminated and their relation with the school should be improved.

Number of the people involved:

Project will involve 16 schools in the test and implementation, 800 teachers in competency tests, will educate 240 teachers in all partners country, test 480 students on the school dropout tendency test and educate 240 students to be better equipped to prevent their school leaving.

Partner Countries:

The partner countries are from Belgium, Turkey, Slovenia and Portugal and there are 2 partners from each country. As mentioned above, school dropout or hidden school dropout is an issue to be handled around Europe in order to reach the already defined targets. The project aims to develop international tools, materials and programs which can be used in any EU country. This necessitates the project to be carried out transnationally.
