Early School Leaving and Learners with Disabilities and/or Special Educational Needs: Final Summary Report

Early school leaving (ESL) is broadly defined as the phenomenon of young people leaving formal education before completing upper-secondary schooling.

Inclusive Early Childhood Education Environment Self-Reflection Tool

This Self-Reflection Tool was developed as part of the Agency's Inclusive Early Childhood Education (IECE) project, which ran from 2015 to 2017. The project aimed to identify, analyse and subsequently promote the main characteristics of quality IECE for all children. To that end, a need was detected for a tool that all professionals and staff could use to reflect on their setting’s inclusiveness, focusing on the social, learning and physical environment. This tool is intended to help improve settings’ inclusiveness.
