RAISE-UP aims to prevent Early School Leavers increase both by addressing students in Vocational Education and Training (VET) schools and promoting educators’ and schoolteachers’ competencies on digitisation and green transitions, strengthening the school capacity to prevent new social risks. RAISE-UP achieves these goals by designing, implementing, and evaluating an integrated school programme directed at Vocational Education and Training (VET) students aged 14-16 years old, schoolteachers, and professional educators. Three VET schools from urban, peripheral and rural areas will be selected through a public call. The first phase of the RAISE-UP programme (4 months) includes the design and implementation of capacity-building activities directed at schoolteachers and professional educators. This phase will integrate their skills and competences on digital and green thematic areas (24 hours of training and a collaborative project work). As result, six collaborative project works will be implemented in specific Educational Offer Plans. In addition, a coaching service will target schoolteachers with difficulties in managing critical situations among students.

The second phase (8 months) comprises the class-based implementation of project works by schoolteachers and professional educators with students (120 participants treated), in order to act on their vocational maturity and motivation(4 hours per week). The programme will be evaluated through Counterfactual Impact Evaluation based on a differencein-difference method. This programme will enable us to get more detailed information on its efficacy. The RAISE-UP programme will be piloted in Italy. Results will be tailored to the international and EU scale, thanks to the development of one International Action Plan, intended to engage practitioners and relevant policy stakeholders. Moreover, the RAISEUP programme results will be showcased at the Global Solutions Initiative event and in academic conferences.



The main project target groups are constituted by VET students aged 14-16, schoolteachers and professional educators. RAISE-UP has the ambition to make evident and clear the mechanisms that connect societal digital and green divide with its effects on school dropouts and students performance.

RAISE-UP intends to generate a concrete impact first of all on the [3] direct target groups participating in the project activities represented by VET students [180 individuals], schoolteachers and educators [40 individuals] attending capacity building activities.
