The project is part of the effort to reduce the dropout rate from secondary education and subsequent exclusion and poverty. The Norwegian Directorate for Education and Training is responsible for the project management of the Nordic project, and a Nordic project team has been established with representatives from all participating countries. The Nordic countries share the same common goal but have different approaches and different projects. Through the collaboration project, they hope to benefit from each other’s experiences. Nordic project meetings to share findings will be held twice a year during the project period.
Along with Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland, Greenland, the Faroe Islands and Åland are also taking part in the collaboration project.
