The RESIST project addressed student drop-out issues in VET institutes (VETs). The project had an innovative practical approach to drop-out prevention in VETs. It is based on educational approaches from Germany, Finland, Spain, Poland and an entrepreneurial way of teaching & training by lead partner Business Development Friesland.

The project has directly confronted the lack of cooperation between VETs and SMEs and as an effect diminished the number of drop-outs in VETs.

The manual we developed can assist VETs in organising an event where students, teachers, entrepreneurs and employees interact and foster important relationships for the future. This event could bring about an interaction between the different groups and diminish the number of Early School Leavers of VET level students due to their better understanding of their future in working life.
