Event Information

Open to







Jenny Chanfreau

Children who are excluded from school may end up being excluded from other social institutions. Yet little research has considered whether low school belonging is a risk factor for later not in education, employment, or training (NEET).

In this webinar, Philip Parker will discuss research findings that used two longitudinal cohorts from Australia to explore this relationship. 

This event will be particularly useful for those interested in quantitative social science, education, school exclusion, transition to adulthood.
