Start date: Nov 1, 2016,
End date: Feb 28, 2018
The Consortium promoter of this proposal, coordinated by the Provincial Development Board of the Council of Cuenca, and shaped by other 18 VET organisations, both public and private bodies, presents the project “FRAY LUIS DE LEÓN III” thanks to their extensive experience in mobility projects.“FRAY LUIS DE LEÓN III” intends to continue with the training and work activities that have brought many benefits to the youth of the province through projects developed mobility (especially linked to its predecessors, “FRAY LUIS DE LEÓN” and “FRAY LUIS DE LEÓN II”), thanks to which these young people have gained valuable work experience, combined with the cultural and linguistic experience. All of this will increase the chances of finding a job and raise their levels of employability, which is the main objective of this project. The group objective of “FRAY LUIS DE LEÓN III” consists of a total of 25 young between 18 and 35 years old, in possession of a VET certificate, obtained in any of the institutions that make up the Consortium.The professional areas which the project addresses are:- Physical and sports activities- Agrarian - Administration and management - Graphic arts- Trade and marketing - Electricity and electronics - Hospitality and tourism- Information technology and communications - Installation and maintenance - Personal image - Sound and vision - Wood, furniture and cork - Health- Sociocultural and community services - Transport and vehicle maintenanceNeeds and problems of young students and/or graduates from Cuenca in these sectors are broadly:- A high rate of youth unemployment. - Little or no work experience. - Limited knowledge and use of a second language. - Low level of self-employment in the province of Cuenca. - A high concentration of the population in rural areas. - Very limited labour supply in the province due to lack of a solid business network. - Academic offer very limited. - Loss of human capital for young graduates who have to emigrate to work in jobs related to their training. - Lack of knowledge and use of ICT.- Little awareness of European citizenship and the workforce to compete in a global market.Based on the socio-economic context, the identified needs, the professional sectors and the overall project objective, we have established the following specific objectives:- Improve the employability of participants through quality labor practices in companies abroad.- Provide the tools to adapt to a new work environment in a different culture and learn other methods of work in a foreign company.- Develop skills in a second language.- Acquire job skills learning to create supportive alliances in a very different socio-cultural framework, working with people from other cultures.- Promote equal opportunities for young people in rural and urban areas, and between men and women.- Acquire social skills and develop personal skills by learning to organize and structure work routines.- Provide career guidance to participants.The relevance of the project is enhanced by the fact that it operates on a rural, depressed territory with scarce resources, providing greater opportunities for participants to complete their qualifications and find employment.“FRAY LUIS DE LEÓN III” provides 25 selected participants, according to a public and transparent procedure, the organization of stays for completing professional training in European companies for 3 months in Padova (Italy), Lisbon (Portugal), Belfast (Northern Ireland) and Prague (Czech Republic). In each of these cities, the Consortium has the support of a set of intermediaries and host companies that consolidate the quality of the project partners, with which they are collaborating for years.At a cultural and social level, apprenticeships offer young people of Cuenca the opportunity to live an enriching experience that will take place in a cultural context characterized by diversity, with new forms of work and resolving conflicts, which contribute to having a broader vision and social skills increasingly valued by companies.In short, “FRAY LUIS DE LEÓN III” is the result of the commitment of the Consortium and its partners in continuing the promotion of training and employment for local young people. Therefore, implementing this project is designed to meet the stated objectives and achieve positive results, both locally and for project participants who may complete their training routes, gain work experience and improve the learning of a second language.
