ITS NEVER TOO LATE TO GET AN EDUCATION
Start date: Jan 1, 2015,
End date: Feb 29, 2016
This training course was designed for youth workers and staff working with young people with particular emphasis on young people who have left school early or did not have the opportunity to get tertiary education. Many young people feel that without a degree their chances of employment are extremely limited and feel they do not have a chance to get any employment. The project evaluated the needs of young people and the labour market of each of the partner communities and also those in the EU and developed ways to help young people enhance their skills, education and competences to increase their employability.
We aimed to exchange good and bad practices with the participants and to develop methodologies to help young people who have not obtained an education or skills to either obtain new skills or gain some education to make them more employable. We looked at different tools and opportunities available to youth on a local and EU level to help them gain an education or skills. We gave a lot of focus on the existing knowledge of young people on the tools available to them and focused on finding ways to keep them informed of the opportunities available to them.
We need to identify the problems in each of the communities and also understand the opportunities available so that we can help youth in these fields and help them increase their employability. By giving the youth the tools to gain an education and increase their skills we are also helping them to find employment in an overly competitive market. In addition to enhancing education and skills we will also look at employment opportunities in each community and in the EU giving the youth the needed information to find the jobs which are right for them, allowing them to better understand the labour markets and how they fit into these. The project successfully created a better understand of the labour market showing the diverse needs of the market and how each person can find employment.
The youth workers and staff are now better able to assist young people in these fields more readily as a result of this training course.
