Abstract

This is an effect evaluation of the school offer Lopfjølin, which is not held at a school but in a youth club in order to accommodate the needs of pupils who find it difficult to attend regular school.
The students have been taken out of the regular school temporarily to attend Lopfjølin. For the most part, both Lopfjølin’s structure and approach as well as the interaction with teachers and social educators has proven to be a positive experience for the pupils.
The teachers and social educators employ an openminded and tolerant conversational approach. They engage the pupils at the subject level they are at with the aim of helping them graduate from early secondary school (grade 9), enabling them to perform their best. Through conversation, the aim is also to help them become aware of their competencies, to gain self-confidence and belief in themselves.
Most pupils have experienced a marked success, being enabled to move ahead in the school system or in the work market, strengthened in the conviction that the future holds a range of opportunities for them.
Despite this success, none of the pupils were able to re-enter regular school, mostly due to negative circumstances. However, most of them have managed to receive their school diploma, to graduate from early secondary school.
In their input, parents emphasised the change they saw in their children’s attitude, social life, academic improvement and especially in mental health, gaining increased self-confidence. Apart from this, they also had high praise for the co-operation with both the teachers and social educators, enabling them to support their children in the best way possible.
