second chance education

Search this site by keywords using the advanced search

Second chance education aims at giving learners who interrupted their education a second opportunity for completing an education or training program, and possibly obtain a formal qualification. In order to be more effective, second chance education programs are sensitive to the initial reasons that might be in the background of learners interrupting their education and training early in the first place. They are often delivered in a flexible way, outside regular school-hours or part-time, allowing learners to work on the side of studying, and often they follow alternative pedagogical methodology.

Some second chance education programs provide another chance to acquire a qualification, while others focus on re-engaging learners and motivate them to return to formal education or employment, thus instead of creating an alternative to formal education, they support the process of transition.
