From Burnout to Engagement During Transition from School to Work
A positive approach to educational and career adaptation is strongly emerging, focusing on school and work engagement. This chapter presents results from the FinEdu and HELS longitudinal studies in which young people were followed for several years during critical educational and school to work transitions. This chapter focuses on how engagement and burnout changes and the role they play during these transitions: this chapter presents findings on how young people navigate their educational transitions from comprehensive school to upper-secondary education and further education, and finally to work life, and the role of motivation, engagement and burnout in these transitions.
