School-leaver surveys

Since the early nineties the Research Centre for Education and the Labour Market (ROA) has conducted research among recent school-leavers in most sectors of education in the Netherlands. The surveys among different groups of school-leavers have been strongly standardized, and the resulting data has been integrated into a single School-leavers Information System (SIS). This system is designed to function as a monitoring instrument for the transition from school to work, covering the full breadth of the Dutch education system. ROA bears the responsibility for the design, implementation and management of SIS. The field work for the various surveys is conducted by DESAN Research Solutions in Amsterdam.
