The PrevDrop project equips students as well as student advisers at universities and careers advisers at employment agencies with tools, knowledge and resources that help to detect dropout risks and to provide or find adequate support.
In this section, you can find resources for advisors working with students that face drop out risks as well as trainers and multipliers that offer training courses for advisors. The resources include background information on drop out from Higher Education and its prevention (module 1), an introduction into the Student Self-Reflection Tool, its usage and the interpretation of the feedback it provides (module 2), counselling concepts (module 3) and the successful integration of students who dropped out from Higher Education into vocational educational training (module 4).
The information provided in this section aims to support the guidance process of (potential) dropouts.
