|Additional Information:||This article further develops Attwood and Croll's work on the study of pre-16 students in FE provision. It focuses on truancy and compares in-depth interviews of students with data supplied by the large scale Household Panel Survey. The article is innovative for its use of a mixed research methodology. It offers a new conceptualisation of truancy in distinguishing between factors which make young people vulnerable to truancy and factors which precipitate truancy episodes. This work has been discussed with policy makers and its implications discussed in detail with a Regional Learning and Skills Council. Attwood is responsible for 50%.|
