Team Adolescents

Adolescents are at the heart of the agenda of this team. With a specific focus on low-achieving students, this group of professionals designs country-reports tailored to age-specific and cross-cutting questions of adolescent literacy. This team is also very eager to learn about good literacy practices throughout Europe which is why they activate all their resources to collect cutting-edge literacy practices.
All team members closely align their work with Team Childhood and Team Adults, often facing similar challenges – such as assessing the mass of research data readily available to compile thorough and articulate country-specific reports and guidance.
