“Employability. Young people, your future interests me …” is an Erasmus + training course designed for active youth workers (and who support young people looking for work) who aim to empower young people and the acquisition of skills to improve the vocational guidance of young people through non-formal education.
These are skills such as:
- Skills in problem solving and analysis
- Management and communication skills
- The ability to work in a team
- Language skills
- Digital skills.
- This training explores the theme of employability with the aim of strengthening and broadening the capacity of youth workers to support young people, their entrepreneurial spirit and their employability. We have designed a flexible program and we will be ready to adapt it according to the needs and expectations of the participants; in addition, a space will always be open to participants who want a more active role. The current EU policy frameworks for youth employment revolve around discussions on preparation for 2020, “New Skills for New Jobs” and “Smart Growth”. Created in September 2010, “Youth on the Move” is the latest major initiative of the European Commission in the field of youth policy. It is one of the seven “development projects” of Europe 2020, the EU’s growth strategy for the next decade. The approach revolves around three lines of action:
1) Improve the education and training of youth workers in order to improve the employment
prospects of those who fail in the labor market
2) Facilitate mobility for studies and work
3) Provide a new framework for tackling youth unemployment
The program promotes in particular:
- Non-formal learning
- Awareness of opportunities to study abroad
- Entrepreneurship: as part of this initiative, a micro-finance center will provide support to help young entrepreneurs.
And The specific objectives of the training are:
- Identify the talents of the participants and help them to exploit them so as to strengthen attitudes,
skills and opportunities at the same time;
- Better understand how to create cooperation and actions to strengthen the scenario of young
people through non-formal education and to motivate an autonomous learning process;
- Allow youth workers to gain experience in a specific sector for young people in transformation and who need solutions to avoid their poverty;
- Show the relevance of finding innovative methods and tools to support and help participants
by using a global approach to overcome the obstacles caused by the high unemployment rate in Europe;
- Offer more qualitative opportunities for innovative and future cooperation and projects within the framework of the Erasmus + program.
- Reflect and exchange opinions on unemployment and the entrepreneurship of young people with fewer opportunities in different European countries (trends and influencing factors, specifications of the target group, priorities, etc.).
- Discuss how youth work and non-formal education can have a positive influence on improving the employability and employment of young people and share examples of good practice in entrepreneurship and employment. job fighting youth unemployment.
