Social relations and drop-out rates Abstract This research paper is developed under the specifications of the project 'ULE' (Youths Learning Processes at the Danish VET programs) in outlying areas of Zealand. ULE is a research and development project in collaboration with students, teachers and other stakeholders at VET programs. ULE focuses on the meeting between learning culture, youth culture and develops new initiatives for vulnerable students. This with a special focus on students identity processes, their need for social communities and dropout and transitions in the education system. The results of the ULE project studies are aimed at understanding, explaining and creating knowledge that can be used to determine problems and solutions. This particular research paper examines how the social communities affect the retention of students at CELF (Center for Vocational Education Lolland Falster) in Nakskov, based on fieldwork on the smith education. High drop-out rates is a problem in the primary process of the education as students here have not yet chosen their subject-specific training, and even more students do not have an apprenticeship (DCUM, 2009: 39). Therefore, the starting point would be to examine students in the primary process of their VET on CELF.
