Abstract

This chapter introduces the nine case studies, the common question framework used and the different methodologies adopted. The aim of the case studies is to examine the transitions of disadvantaged young people from compulsory school to further education, from education/vocational training to the labour market and from being unemployed/outside the labour market into employment. They also look at examples of education and employability programmes that may support young people in these transitions in order help us understand the trajectories from school to work from a capability approach.
