Project "beat&win Evaluation"
Evaluation of the qualification measure beat&win
beat&win is a socio-pedagogical qualification measure for young people with health problems. The three-month basic module that contains planning the training, basic qualification and finding a training place also provides the opportunity to do short work placements in order to ascertain career aspirations. After that participants receive 15-month practical training in the commercial sector (office administrator, accountant, trained retail salesperson) or in the technical field (computer engineer, electronics engineer, mechatronics engineer, draftsperson or construction draftsperson).
During this time the BBRZ (Vocational education and rehabilitation centre) accompanies and supports the young people individually. Within this evaluation the participants, trainers and the training companies will be questioned with a focus on strengths and weaknesses of the measure. In addition, resilience factors will be determined: Which factors contribute to young people completing the apprenticeship? Which factors contribute to young people dropping out? To what extent are health problems and other social disadvantages crucial for labour market integration?
