    This masters work is about case study which’s theme is solving the problem of school dropouts in Danish school system. The theoretical part contains information about adolescence and its development process from young age till grownups. Development period is a social category that is why it is necessary to describe society and the role of an adolescent in it. I explain the concept of lengthening adolescence and the problem of premature education dropout. I explore the problem of dropouts, which appears when adolescent prematurely drops out of school. Often some adolescents, after finished obligatory education, don’t know how or where to continue education. Such group of adolescents is socially vulnerable and many times pushed to the edge of society. I describe supporting approaches for young dropouts in Slovenia and elaborate PUM/PUM-O program. Further I present Danish approaches to solving dropout problems and MultiCenter Syd, a production school, which represents a good practice on this field. In empirical part I describe the MultiCenter Syd in detail, where I was gaining experience as an assistant teacher on creative section for four months. With the help of interviews I explore teachers and adolescents experiences and evaluations, that are involved in the prodaction school of MultiCenter Syd. Gained data is qualitatively processed, systematically presented and filled with my experiences as a foreign student and an assistant. Data shows that adolescents positively experience MultiCenter Syd programs and would also recommend it to other adolescents, who somehow lost their educational way. The main message of interviewed teachers, based on their experiences, is that the production is the right way to guide adolescents who are uncertain about their next step in making their carrier. In the last part, based on my own estimation and experiences with Danish model and less known PUM/PUM-O program, I have determined criteria of comparison and similarity between both programs, which deal with dropouts.
