Towards Higher Employability of Youth. European Approach
Start date: Aug 1, 2015,
End date: Jan 31, 2017
The unemployment of young people in Europe has reached alarming rates and fight against it has become one of the most important priorities not only for national government but also for the politicians on the EU level. It is only necessary as the labour markets in the EU countries become more and more connected. However, not only the strategies and tools used for tackling the unemployment have to be accessed from the European point of view, but also the young people and recently graduates have to look at their situation with a wide perspective.
The aim of the proposed project is to raise awareness about the European programmes and tools that can help the young people to find job and to integrate to the labour market.
During the project, the partners from Czech Republic, Poland, Bulgaria, Italy and Spain will create educational programme that will cover the following topics:
• Available funding programmes (Erasmus+, Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs, European Voluntary Service and others): how to use the funding effectively?
• European tools for recognition of skills and qualification (ECTS, ECVET, EuroPass, European Qualifications Framework and others): how can these be effectively used?
• Open Educational Resources (the ones created through past EU funded projects and accessible through the EST database, but not exclusively): where can they be found and used?
• The work mobility in the EU (the EURES network, the rights connected to European citizenship and other aspects): how can the opportunities of the common labour market be used?
The target group of the project will be young people at risk of unemployment and young people with fewer opportunities. In the Czech Republic the group of young people taking actively part in the project will be from the Bruntal region – one of the regions with the highest unemployment rate in the Czech Republic. However, the outcomes of the project will be used nationwide and with the help of the partners of the project on the European level.
