Erasmus+: KA1 - Youth Exchange - Programme Countries
Dates: 17/05/2016 - 25/05/2016
Having a university or college degree has become the norm in our societies but what do these give us in terms of skills. We hear that young people find it difficult to find employment because they lack the working experience and even worse so the skills to do certain jobs. Our project will look at the different skills that young people have and help them to develop and enhance these skills, help them find these skills and adapt them to a working environment so that they can increase their chances of employment.
We will look at the different fields of education that our young people have chosen and also look at their life skills, their soft skills, their practical skills and another other skills they might have and see how we can use these skills to make them more attractive to employers and also give them a more diverse spectrum of employment opportunities.
This youth exchange will focus on the different skills young have or can obtain through various methods allowing them to utilise their strength and enhance the areas of their weaknesses, to give them confidence and faith that their efforts are not lost and that even in difficult times, employment opportunities are out there for those that know how to use what they already have.
We will embark on a journey to a place called Skill Ville where we will work on our different skills and leave to face a real world filled with challenged that we are equipped to deal with, to embrace a labour market with our skills and change the status of young people from unemployed to employable and employed.
