Reducing youth unemployment is a big challenge for all MS in Europe. The improvement of career guidance (of which professional orientation is one part) is a very important task to improve the knowledge, skills and competences, in particular for adult learners in vulnerable situations.
In line with the Europe 2020 Strategy and the European Agenda for Adult Learning, the ‘Professional Orientation of Vulnerable Young People’ project seeks to promote re-skilling and up-skilling across 8 Member States providing vulnerable young people with e-career guidance and improving the orientation measures offered by the AEPs in the field.
The Specific objectives seek to:
- identify and share good practices and experiences from 8 EU countries, which results will contribute to the overall improvement of professional orientation of vulnerable young people offered by adult education providers & educational institutions throughout EU
- develop and submit policy recommendations at European, National, Regional and Local Level for better regulation of the career guidance provided in adult education
- promote and support adoption of Open Educational Resource (OER) in 8 EU languages, providing access to learning to vulnerable young people, often in situation of discrimination and social exclusion, including people with fewer opportunities
- develop e-career guidance tool, enhancing digital integration in learning, teaching, training and offering tailored learning opportunities to disadvantaged learners
- promote professional development of Adult Education staff in ICT methodology, improving adult educators' teaching competences, enabling exchange of experiences and validation of the developed learning modules on career guidance at EU level
- raise the awareness of vulnerable young people on new learning approaches aiming at re-skilling and up-skilling
- develop and maintain educational portal as multiplier and sustainable learning tool at EU level
The PROVYP project objectives could be achieved only by implementing the project activities at transnational level, as the cross-border cooperation is crucial for combating the youth unemployment at national and European level by exchange of best practices, common recommendations for better career guidance and joint development of high quality learning tool in different EU languages.
The project will address VULNERABLE YOUNG PEOPLE between 18 and 30 years old - NEETs, low-skilled, unemployed. The partners consider it important to provide the group of vulnerable youth with new ways of learning and to improve their skills, promoting inclusion to the labour market, active participation in the social, political, economic and cultural life of the societies in which they live and promote self-employment solutions, including social economy tools.
Another target group addressed by the project is of key professionals: AEPs, social workers, trainers, mediators, coaches, professional job counselors from different EU countries, who working in common EU context will be able to respond to the European market-related challenges, disseminate best practices, implement innovative models and jointly address policy objectives, challenges and needs of the AE field at European level.
The suggested consortium brings together 10 organisations, each of them with special expertise. The PROVYP project will reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches in professional orientation applied in the partner countries and produce a consolidated European report and policy recommendations for improvement of the career guidance regulations.
The partners will develop OER for the vulnerable young people to provide career guidance for their skills’ improvement by using multiplier and sustainable tools. The staff educators will also improve their competences by offering new ways of learning, as a result of the joint training and exchange of experiences at international level.
The methodological approach taken by PROVYP to achieve the proposed objectives is one of mutual decision taking and regular exchange of information in order to ensure that all consortium members are involved in the project’s progress. All partners commit themselves to share their knowledge and experience within the action, being aware of specific strengths of particular partners.
The whole project duration is 24 months, calculated in order to implement correctly the planned activities and achieve the project objectives. Total of 252 direct beneficiaries will be involved in the multiplier events + 80 participants with fewer opportunities. Additionally 30 adult educators will take part in Joint staff training and exchange of experience + 10 assistants with special needs (at a distance).
The involvement of experts from 8 European Member States will consist an added value towards achieving the expected results and respond effectively to the initiatives and strategies undertaken by the European institutions in the field.
