PROJECT DURATION
29 months (March 2019 – July 2021)

FUNDING PROGRAM
Erasmus+ KA2 – Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices – Strategic Partnerships in the field of education, training and youth

BACKGROUND 
Young people (YP) are often encouraged to develop the technical skills needed to enter the labour market, but competencies on how to conduct themselves in the workplace, as well as create opportunities for employment mobility for themselves can be neglected, despite disadvantaged young people having few opportunities to be exposed to these key skills. The YEC project aims to help yp & youth workers identify key gaps in employability competences & address these through youth worker led training modules.

OBJECTIVES 
The objectives of the project are:

  • – Increase employability of YP
  • – Increase validation of YP’s employability competences
  • – Increase engagement of YP & employers in competency tool development
  • – Increase the focus on YP’s employability among YP & their practitioners

 

TARGET
Young People who are seeking employment


ACTIVITIES 

– Creation of employability competencies
training modules for Young People, with particular focus on the personal, social & learning to learn competency from the Council of The European Union.

  • – Creation of train the trainer course with specific focus on youth workers & guidance practitioners engaging with Young People who are seeking employment

  • – Creation of a guide for local youth workers & practitioners
    to map the modules from the train the trainer course, or any employability skills training, onto current validation systems under ET 2020.
