Edited by three authorities in the field, this Handbook presents
contributions from experts across the world who report the
cutting-edge of international research. It is ground-breaking in its
holistic, evidence-informed *** that aims to synthesize key messages

working knowledge in order to engage young people and transform their
life chances.
A powerful *** that will be of interest to students, researchers and
academics involved with education.
