Educational Systems and Employment
Erasmus+: KA1 - Mobility of Youth Workers - Programme Countries
Place: United Kingdom
Dates: 05/01/2016 - 13/01/2016
We have seen that we have a large amount of young people who have completed their studies and find themselves unemployed with little chance of finding employment in the near future. Most of our youth blame this on the crisis but is this entirely true?
Our training course will look at how our youth address the question of education and the choices they make. Are they studying simply to get a degree? Are they studying what they want or what their parents tell them to study? Have they researched their market well enough before going to study or selecting the study path?
We will work with youth workers and educators during this training course to help them gain the tools needed to assist our youth to make more informed decisions when it comes to education so that they have a greater chance of finding employment after they complete their studies.
We will learn from each other’s experiences and share good and bad practices with each other so that we can offer our youth better knowledge and options for their future.
This training course will look at different tools available to help young people understand labour market trends, ways to tweak their educational choices or skills to fit into the labour market needs, and explore the advantages and dangers associated with cross border employment.
The main objective is to identify the common problems and mistakes in each of the partner countries and find ways to give youth workers, organisations active in youth work and youth the tools to be more prepared for the labour market before they embark on their educational journey.
Focus is also given on those who have completed their studies already and now need to adopt their education or their skills to fit into the demands of the labour markets so that they have a greater chance of employment.
The project also covers a topic of illegal migration of young people in the hope to find employment and addresses the dangers associated with this in the hope to help young people understand these dangers and also to explore their options in their own country before considering a legal way to migrate to another country.
This project has been funded with support from the European Commission (Erasmus + Programme).
