The article argues that poetic inquiry is a valuable method for producing knowledge that complements current research into 'what works' in reintegrating young people into secondary education. By use of poetic examples, the article demonstrates how the young people have pronounced experiences of deficiency, uncertainty, failure, but also of hope, certainty, and belonging.
The study argues for a shift in focus away from an
individual perspective on young people on the margins of education
and towards a relational perspective that takes the social
environment and the education system into account. The study
identifies three overall components of educational
trust: (1) social security and recognition, (2) flexibility in
structures and (3) progression in skills. The concept of
educational trust, it is suggested, creates a shift in focus from
the individual young person to the role and function of the
education system in aiming to reach the target of more young people

This article is concerned with how motivation to take an education can be stimulated in young adults who are on the margins of the labour market and educational system. The article presents a model with five motivational orientations suggesting a new perspective on re-motivating young adults on the margin of the labour market and educational system, while it also discusses the challenges connected to promoting a focus on motivation at a time when the liberalisation of education is increasingly central to the welfare state strategy.

The main focus of the article is the relationship between the subjective narratives of young people and dominant political storylines on education. The article asks how political storylines on education can be traced in young people's narratives, and if and how they affect the narratives and transitional processes of the young people in question. It also argues that the normal transition, which is currently held up as the political ideal, risks further marginalising young people who are already on the periphery of the educational system.
