International Report on Secondary Transition

The mission of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. This five-year (2007-2011) project intended to increase persons with disabilities’ participation to employment and to prevent them being dependant from benefit systems. It aimed to facilitate cost-effective planning and monitoring through reliable and internationally comparable data on access and success opportunities given to persons with disabilities in secondary education and tertiary education. It examined good transition programs in order to support schools in focusing on process and learning outcomes, developing policies and strategies as well as adapting school organization and curricula. The pathways project identified transition policies followed by participating countries with respect to persons with disabilities. Participating countries conducted three-year longitudinal studies, providing information on what works with regard to individual pathways as well as on best practices to be developed. The case studies describe good examples of successful pathways suggested by the developed educational practices and support strategies.
