Non-formal education and school success: use our DROP’IN tools!

Aug 23, 2021News

After 36 months, DROP’IN has come to an end. Let’s discover its main results and how you can use them at school or in your work with students.

During the project lifetime, NGOs, associations and schools have worked together to introduce non-formal education benefits in several formal contexts, improving the quality of teaching of teachers and the motivation of students. Moreover, this cooperation has led to the production of several resources, which are available on the project website at the following link, in all partners languages:


At this page you can find:

DROP’INSIGHT: it is a research providing information on Early School Leaving, its roots and on the benefits of non-formal education. It can be a useful reading if you’d like to introduce the usage of non-formal education in school or to deepen your knowledge on the topic of Early School Leaving.

EDUC’ACTION: THE EDUCATION IN ACTION: a catalogue with more than 30 non-formal activities to be implemented at school! It is suggested to be used together with our online portfolio, DROP’IN ACTION! (see below).

DROP’INVOLVE: teachers’ training: this document provides a programme of a training for teachers, with example of implemented training in Italy, France, Bulgaria and Latvia. It can be a guide to replicate the same training in your institution or to identify the main educational steps to implement a successful training programme in the project topics.

DROP’IN Action: Experimentation & Valorisation: together with the catalogue EDUC’ACTION, it is the most interactive resources of DROP’IN project: it presents our Online Portfolio, which allows you to select among 25 activities implemented and shows you the impact and the adaptation of these techniques in the countries where they have been used, providing further suggestions on how to implement non-formal education in your context. Moreover, some testimonies from teachers and the reactions of students are reported, thus giving you an clear overview of the process in which teachers and students worked together.
