TITLE: SECOND CHANCE SCHOOLS – SCSs COUNTRY: France

Briefly description of the activity and target group

Registry information

The institution of Second Chance Schools has been developed as an effort to combat the social exclusion of who have not finished basic education and do not have the necessary qualifications and skills to adapt to modern vocational requirements. Unlike any other school, the students have an important role to play in the drawing up of the curriculum, which tends towards informatics, vocational skills, mathematics and language and often social and psychological aspects of learning (group work, creativity, self respect). Co-operation between schools, companies and individuals, which in some cases takes the form of a formal agreement, ensures a curriculum which is relevant to local needs and thus eases entry to the labour market. SCSs seek to mobilize the full range of local players and provide high quality educational resources in order to raise the employment opportunities of young people who otherwise have no chance of entering the labour market. Complementing the measures introduced by individual Member States, this should provide a new opportunity through education and training. A certain number of basic elements together make up the originality of the approach: 1. The primary objective Integration into an education and training programme with a view to gaining employment 2. Environment The cities concerned combine the disadvantages of a high concentration of unfavorable socio economic environments with the advantage of being potentially able to mobilize a range of local players. 3. Teaching approach • teaching methods clearly focused on these young people’s needs • qualified and motivated staff, properly recognized and appreciated for their efforts • particular focus on informatics and multimedia • looking to provide qualifications which are relevant to the local labour market. 4. The key to success: local partnerships • clear commitment by the local authorities concerned • active support by relevant local partnerships • direct support from local employers http://www.fondatione2c.org/srt/e2c/home http://www.gouvernement.fr/gouvernement/quest-ce-que-l-ecolede-la-deuxieme-chance In France, there are 63 Schools in 14 regions and 33 departments. The first Second Chance School was born in 1997 as a EC pilot 2

project. Now, SCSs have been adopted as new educational concept and a response to the needs of those where existing education systems have failed. The training duration is 6-24 months. The SCSs are set up by a partnership formed by: - the Region - local communities - Bred Initiatives - la Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations et Suez And by some donors (e.g. Banque de France)

In general, the Second Chance Schools are financed by: - the Region (33%) - The State (30%) - FSE and local communities (Conseils Généraux, 3Municipalités, Agglomérations) Target group : 18-25 young people seeking to integrate into society and work, but who lack basic qualifications and competencies. Most of them live in large metropolitan conurbations, who are totally without access to training schemes or employment. In some cases, young people could be over 25. Since its launch in 1997, the Second Chance School is more and more popular: the 2011 target is 10,500 young people (comparing the 2009 data, a strong progress of 41% has been registered) The SCSs are in the process of creating a label, in order to evaluate and control the use of the SCS concept. The label will be also a guarantee for the financers and donors. Meanwhile, the number of SCSs will be increased.

The actions of street workers and the situation of young people on the street are little and badly known and neither public opinion nor the local authorities afford them enough recognition or support. There is clearly a need for building the capacity of these two groups to better explain their situation/actions so that they are better understood. The EU project "Streetwork and communication: a training guide, case study and good practices" therefore aimed to train street workers and young people to communicate better towards the public authorities and the media. A project training guide was developed on the basis of a case study and good practice within the network, and meetings with communication experts, journalists and political decision-makers. Using the guide, the partners launched some pilot communications actions in their countries. The feedback from these was fed into the development of the international guide. This guide concerns: the exchange of good practices, the violence prevention especially in urban areas, the support to families and to multidisciplinary networks. The guide has been drawn up by the International Network of Social Street workers (http://www.street-work.net/en ), with the support of the EC PROGRESS programme, and General Management of the Belgian Development Cooperation (http://diplomatie.belgium.be/en/policy/development_cooperation/ ) http://www.streetwork. net/files/files/Guide2008AN.pdf The international guide was published in November 2008.

young people to communicate better towards the public authorities and the media. The beneficiaries are: adolescents and young people, asylum seekers, children, ethnic minorities, migrants and refugees. The general public, media and social workers are the intermediaries. The international guide is more than a guide to how to communicate; it also contains vital information that can be used to illustrate the facts of street life to the media and, through them, to the public. For example, the lead organization Dynamo International used its network to compile statistics from 20 countries on the life of young people on the streets and the work that street social workers do with them. The feedback of the series of communication’s actions launched by the International Network of Social Street workers Members in their countries, in application of the guide’s recommendations, would enable an enrichment of the guide which would also be for the street youth themselves and for any social worker in general who wishes to communicate.

TITLE: Towards a Safer School - Hofstad MAVO Secondary School COUNTRY: Netherlands Briefly description of the activity and target group

Towards a Safer School - Hofstad MAVO Secondary School is a project identified as good practice by the European Crime Prevention Network. Theme: bullying and verbal and physical aggression. The objective of the 'Towards a Safer School' project is to reduce incidents of bullying and verbal and physical violence. Hofstad MAVO is a small secondary school in The Hague. It’s a medium-level vocational school for theoretical and mixed learning paths. The school has been conducting an active safety policy since 2004. The focus of this policy is the school’s commitment to being a safe school. It focuses on different aspects, including social safety (aggression and violence, bullying, sexual intimidation, discrimination, theft, vandalism), physical safety (accidents, occupational health and safety issues), fire safety, and traffic safety (commuting to and from school). The safety policy involves both a structural and a thematic approach. The Dutch Schools Inspectorate has qualified the safety policy approach by Hofstad MAVO as excellent. The school experienced undesirable forms of conduct, such as bullying and verbal and physical aggression. Bullying is primarily a problem occurring among individual students. Aggressive behaviour occurs among individual students (verbal and physical aggression), but also between students and teachers (verbal aggression) as well as between parents and teachers. While in the last case it is primarily verbal aggression that is concerned, teachers occasionally feel threatened by parents. Some students are aggressive and short tempered. The school also experienced theft, despite the surveillance camera available. Action objectives: Hofstad MAVO has been committed to being a safe school for students, parents, teachers and supporting staff. Students, parents, teachers and supporting staff must feel safe inside and around the school. Key spearheads included: - Listing the problems and handling them in an effective manner - Providing clarity on how to handle incidents. This requires an effective communication policy. Operationalisation: - The police officer on the beat in the school neighborhood gives guest lessons at the school, primarily in the first forms, about topics such as aggression, theft, bullying, intimidation and fireworks. Now also the school’s tutors give these lessons. - The school has developed its own incident registration system that has been integrated into the Student Tracking System (LVS). A Safety Coordinator, who has been given several hours per week to 9


Registry information

develop and implement the safety policy, administers the system. - The school has drawn up protocols on the following topics: bullying, aggression, intimidation, vandalism and theft. They have been recorded in writing (the rules will be revised soon and will then also be made available in digital form). The protocols describe rules, procedures, and sanctions. - Students who exceed in bad manners are subject to sanctions imposed by the school (including suspension, expulsion, etc.). The police officer on the beat in the school neighborhood also takes action after an incident (in the worst case even legal action). - The school has initiated a Healthy School Programme intended to restrain smoking, alcohol and drug use or to at least make students and their parents aware of the dangers thereof. Eating habits are also addressed in this context. - Meetings with angry or agitated parents are always conducted with two persons present. - Improved lockers have been installed in the school in order to reduce theft. The bicycle shed has been reduced in size. The number of cameras installed in the bicycle shed has been increased to four. - In order to prevent theft from gym locker rooms and dressing rooms, a second dressing room has been added. Both dressing rooms are now located closer to the gym hall so that they are easier to supervise. - A porter’s lodge has been installed at the entrance in order to keep out any undesirable visitors. It is now virtually impossible for visitors to enter the school without reporting to this desk. - The students of the introductory and advanced stages have separate breaks so that not all students will be in the schoolyard at the same time. Teachers and other staff are on duty during breaks in the playground and in the auditorium. - A theatrical performance by a theatre company was organized in order to demonstrate the potential effects of violence on a victim. They also addressed the issue of how to express one’s feelings without becoming aggressive. Guidance / training: Protocols, procedures and step-by-step plans have been drawn up, and may serve as models for other schools. Many of the teaching materials are also suitable for dissemination in other schools. The Safety Plan is based on the format used by HALT Haaglanden. This format is available to all schools. A guidance leaflet on the possible role of the school neighborhood police officer is available from the police. Evaluation: The Safety Committee is responsible for the quality of the safety policy. The Committee periodically reviews incidents, the registration of incidents, and problem areas. This information is used to determine whether the procedures need to be adjusted or supplemented. The good practise is from The Hague, Netherlands. The project concerned was realised in the years 2006-2008 10

Contacts: Guus Verhoef, Deputy Principal, Introductory Stage g.verhoef@Hofstadcollege.nl The developer of the good practice is the entire MAVO secondary school. General developments in society and changes in the population of the school led to the decision to take a more targeted approach towards the safety issue. As a starting point, the school utilised the safety instrument developed by HALT Haaglanden in 2003 for all schools in The Hague. This provided a tool to transform vague ideas into concrete action and policies. In order to enable a more effective implementation of the policy, a building manager was appointed in 2006: s/he is responsible for the building and the school environment in addition to acting as a Safety Coordinator.

Target groups: Students, parents, teachers and supporting staff. The school has 355 students and 42 employees (including 10 to 15 supporting staff). A total of 30 different cultures are represented at the school. Hofstad MAVO is currently still part of Interconfessioneel Hofstadcollege. Problems involving bullying and aggression are nipped in the bud at an earlier stage and there is a general sense that high-risk situations are being controlled more effectively. The staff is able to intervene at an earlier stage in problem situations, and they know what to do. The result is a decline in the number of problems, and problems are less likely to get out of control. The total number of incidents declined: whereas the school previously had experienced incidents on a daily basis, now weeks go by without anything happening in this respect. In addition, the severity of the incidents has decreased. The registration system allows students to be identified at individual level. Because of the fact that students who have gone “too far” have been expelled, the situation at school has become much quieter. The incidence of thefts from lockers, gymnasiums and the bicycle shed has declined significantly as a result of the measures taken. Success factors: - The safety policy is communicated effectively so that all parties involved (students, parents, teachers and other staff) are informed about the policy and understand the consequences of violating the school’s regulations. - The school’s performance in respect of completing the policy cycle (PDCA cycle: Plan Do Check Act) continues to improve. Usage of the incident registration system is a key factor in this regard, since it is instrumental in selecting the type of action that best fits the incident (the type of action required depends on the nature of the incident). - The deployment of a Safety Coordinator and a Safety Committee 11


has made safety care a permanent feature in the school. The school takes responsibility and does rely only on the police officer on the beat in the school neighbourhood. - Hofstad MAVO has specifically chosen to make its current problems more explicit and not to sweep them under the carpet for fear of a bad reputation. - The school has invested heavily in maintaining good relations with the police officer on the beat in the school neighbourhood and the school attendance officer. - A designated person (a Safety Coordinator at Hofstad MAVO) is responsible for the ongoing safety policy (by drawing up procedures and protocols). The responsibility for enforcing this policy (e.g. contacts with the police) can be assigned to the building manager.

Follow up initiatives

Failure factors: - Hofstad MAVO believes that the coherence between individual safety care areas could be improved. An investigation as to what extent the various divisions of Interconfessioneel Hofstadcollege (which includes Hofstad MAVO and two other schools) could be improved will be carried out as well. This would require all divisions to use the same starting points in terms of safety policy and still leave room for diversity in each location). "Towards a Safer School - Hofstad MAVO Secondary School " has been identified as European good practice also by EPSU European Federation of Public Service Unions – and UNI Europe – European trade union federation for services and communication-.

TITLE: Youth Prevention Program (YPP) COUNTRY: Netherlands

Briefly description of the activity and target group

Registry information (country, period, duration, etc.) Typology of the developer (Public Administration, Third Sector Organization,

The Youth Prevention Program is a joint program of the District Police Brabant South-East and three local institutions of the city of Eindhoven for youth aid. The program aims at an early identification of behavioural problems of youngsters and offers early help and assistance so as to prevent youngsters to come into contact with the judicial system. It means that a suitable intervention is offered for the individual youngster who has come into contact with the police (from minor to serious criminal behavior). The general procedure is that a youngster will be offered voluntary help by the YPP based on the perception and evaluation of a police officer. Within 48 hours following the evaluation, a social worker contacts the youngster and his/her family, and an aid programme is initiated (for a maximum of three months). The aim is that aid is given in the local community in cooperation with the institutions in the area. The program distinguishes the following roles: Perception and assessment: - The police is an organization that is able to perceive and assess problem behavior. This function is carried out by the basic police officers. They are responsible for referring clients to the social workers of the program. Aid / intervention: - The youth aid organizations are responsible for the implementation of the aid. It involves a voluntary, short and intensive intervention/help-offer. This intervention aims to improve the independent functioning of the youngster and/or family as soon as possible. The aid takes place in the home and social environment. General procedure: - The youngster will be offered voluntary help by the Y.P.P. based on the perception and evaluation of the police officer. Within 48 hours following the evaluation, the social worker contacts the youngster and his/her family and an aid program is initiated. The intention is that aid is given in the local community in cooperation with the institutions in the area. The Dutch programme initially started in 1992 for a period of three years, but is still carried out successfully.

Today, the YPP is operational in the 18 police departments in the region Brabant South East. The YPP also cooperates with Bureau HALT (an organization with a national network of offices which aims to prevent and combat juvenile crime). The project is a cooperation between the District Police Brabant 13

Early identification of behavioural problems of youngsters; 2. Offering early help by the institutions for youth aid so as to prevent youngsters of getting into contact with the judicial system. After a short intensive help (maximum of three months), the youngster and/ or his family are able to function in his own environment or otherwise be referred to the most suitable institution for youth aid. The YPP initially started in 1992 for a period of three years. However, the results of the YPP, as followed from the external evaluation, were very positive and it was decided to continue the program. YPP is still operational and t the intention is that aid will be given also in the future, in the local community in cooperation with the institutions in the area.
