In the past 12 months, there has been much discussion and project-based work both nationally and at a state level seeking to address the issue of education and training for young people, who for various reasons, have disengaged from formal education. In looking at a number of programs currently running in Australian states and territories a common feature began to emerge. The successful programs or programs with strong outcomes have used training through various arts forms and popular culture to address the issue of educational re-engagement. But, how do arts-based programs provide participants with a greater understanding of the options available to young people who are currently not in education, training and/or employment to enter or re-enter learning or earning and gain the self-confidence to continue along a recognised educational pathway?

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
