EduRebels uses data analytics to predict and prevent school dropouts in underprivileged areas. Currently, education law in the UK states children may leave formal schooling at the age of 16, but must remain in “full-time training” until the age of 18. This form of education is provided by further education colleges (FECs) which are funded based on the number of students they retain throughout the year. Currently, over 75,000 students leave these institutions every year – costing FECs £214 million in lost government funds. EduRebel uses behavioural and historical data analytics to create an early-warning system and a semi-structured intervention ensuring more students complete their education.
