RELE

Despite the close interaction of the learning and health at learning outcomes and educational transitions, the fields have been largely studied separately and approaches have been different. The main objective of this project is to disclose the factors and processes affecting students’ learning, competence-building, health, and well-being from the end of primary education to the end of upper secondary education, and the role of these factors at different action levels: individual, class, school, and municipal policy. The project will deepen our understanding of these intertwined mechanisms, and through comparing students’ developmental paths in different schools and classes offer examples of school-level practices to help students’ successful transition from lower to upper secondary education.

The project follows a cohort of 12 000 children from the beginning of lower secondary education to the end of the upper secondary school by surveys and registry data.

This project is a continuation to the projects "Adolescents’ transition from lower secondary school to upper secondary schools in the Helsinki Metropolitan Region: know-how, motivation and well-being" and "MetLoFIN".
