Identifying determinants of school completion, post-secondary education, and education success in Nunavut (NGMP ID 16SE16)

The overall purpose is to implement a mixed methods research study to explore determinants of secondary school completion, post-secondary education, and education success in Nunavut. The data produced from this study will answer many of the priority questions highlighted by the NGMP for education, such as the causes of student absenteeism, how to attract students back to school after a prolonged absence, whether students are taking courses/programs that prepare them to work in the trades, and the impacts of social factors on school completion. This mixed methods study is achieved by collecting and sharing data that can be used by community organizations, secondary and post-secondary education institutions, and by the federal and territorial governments in the development of evidence-based programs and policies. It is hoped that this will translate into improved education outcomes for Nunavummiut. This project will be inclusive of all Nunavut communities.
