Filling the gaps

12th November 2004 at 00:00
Established in 1999, the European Association of Second Chance Schools (E2C) is dedicated to helping young people who lack the skills and qualifications needed to gain access to higher education programmes and the labour market.

Initially funded by the European Union, the second chance schools are now paid for by individual countries.

Each year, members of E2C meet to exchange ideas and develop new ways of aiding their students.

As this is the European Year of Education through Sport, the focus at this year's event (hosted by Leeds second chance school and running for four days from September 1) was on how sport and physical activities could be used to encourage and improve motivation.
