Education - ISCED

Education specifically targeting individuals who, for a variety of reasons, never attended school or left school either before completion of the level of education in which they were enrolled or who completed the level but wish to enter an educational programme or occupation for which they are not yet qualified. Participants are often older than the typical target age group for the given ISCED level programme (but not necessarily adults). Sometimes also referred to as "bridging programmes" or "re-integration programmes"
