Synopsis

This title offers an insight into the lives and experiences of young people who are out of school and miss substantial periods of their education. The research is based upon in-depth interviews with 72 young people and 20 parents/carers and seminars with 43 professionals. This is a detailed qualitative study on this topic for England and presents the views of young people in their own words. The report explores: the level and quality of educational support young people receive while they are out of school; the difficulties faced by young people as they return to mainstream education; links between bullying, racism and young people's experience of interrupted learning; and the extent to which young people are consulted in matters concerning their education. The report provides a range of case studies on how young people's lives are affected and offers recommendations for service providers, at local and national levels. The report should be of interest to education professionals, policy-makers and researchers.
