ELSY : Devising a multimedia airport syllabus for young people who are unemployed and under-qualified

The aim of the ELSY project is to produce English language (EN) multimedia training tools which will enable people who have few qualifications to acquire the basic vocabulary needed to work in an airport, whatever their working language (FR, ES, IT or DE), so as to make it easier for them to find work and to keep it.The multimedia training tools produced will focus on four specific trades: runway workers, fast food workers, bus drivers and security guards. They will include video sequences showing real working situations. These tools will be produced in HTML format and stored centrally on an extranet site. A password-based account system will simplify access for users, and enable constant updating.The main beneficiaries will be young under-qualified job seekers and the staff of the companies which take part in the project. Other beneficiaries will include specialised training centres and other companies.The methodology used will be adaptable to other sectors with specific linguistic needs, in particular hotels and tourism.Results will be disseminated by the partner training centres, initially to their own clients, and then later through local employment networks and other innovative and relevant methods (e.g. territorial employment pacts).
