Promoting Employment through VET
Date du début: 1 sept. 2014,
Date de fin: 31 août 2016
The Government Office for Békés County – with the collaboration of its labour centre and the department of education – intends to implement the project entitled ’VET to Job – Promoting Employment through VET’ in a consortium with the cooperation of a Finnish vocational education and training school, a Cyprian and British non-profit counselling and adult education and training institution, a Spanish training and counselling organisation and an Austrian employment service.
The rationale of the project is implied in the fact that unemployment – particularly the high rate of low-skilled and unskilled people among them – means a severe problem in the partner organisations’ countries and the European Union.
The results of the survey conducted among job-seekers and employers at every partner show that finding employment is mostly hindered by the fact of not possessing the skills and qualifications demanded by the labour-market and key competences necessary for employment.
Regarding the fact that the most effective way of handling unemployment is its prevention, it is our common aim to prevent those finishing formal education from becoming unemployed through career guidance and VET suitable for economic demands, and to prevent job-seekers having any skills and/or a qualification not demanded by the labour-market from becoming long-term unemployed through helping them acquiring the skills/qualifications demanded by the labour-market. There is a need at every partner organisation to train the leaders and professionals working in the field of career guidance and VET and to improve their professional competences. That need is satisfied by the project, whose objectives – in international cooperation – are to become acquainted with the innovative methods, approaches, best practices applied in the targeted field, exchange experiences in the different countries concerning the ways of motivating the target group for involving, attending and maintaining in training and education and the prevention of dropping-out.
The members of the consortium have been selected in a way that they represent different types of organisations, possess great experience, good practices and exemplary methods in the targeted professional field and will be capable of integrating several diverse professional knowledge, new ideas and suggestions. The participants directly involved in the project are the leaders and professionals, who are special experts in the targeted professional field and they are the ones to use – thanks to their scope of activities – the experiences gained during the project in the most effective way and build them into the local operational system.
During the two-year project we organise international meetings at all the six partner organisations, which allow personal exchange of experiences and opinions, becoming familiar with the good practices besides creating reports on the project implementation and evaluating the common work. The partners carry out the professional work on national level within their organisations between the international meetings and spread the project results widely.
As the result of the project, the Brochure of Best Practices will be created containing the best practices the partner organisations apply in order to reach the aims set in the proposal. Every partner organisation creates a brief guide in their own national languages, which will provide some guiding instructions on what methods and best practices the teachers dealing with career guidance and instructors, professionals of VET should apply in order to realise the aims set in the proposal.
The project results will be widely spread and disseminated among others on internet websites, at professional forums, meetings thus could be used by the professionals interested in every country.
As a result of the project, the situation of the target group mentioned below will be improved:
- Unskilled students or students who have skills/qualifications not demanded by the labour-market, attend formal education, are before making a career choice or modification and do not possess competences necessary for becoming employed,
- Unskilled registered job-seekers or registered job-seekers having skills/qualifications not demanded by the labour-market, who do not possess competences necessary for becoming employed,
- Unskilled job-seekers or job-seekers having skills/qualifications not demanded by the labour-market, who attend adult education and do not possess competences necessary for becoming employed.
As a long-term effect of the project, the level of employment will increase while unemployment will decrease through career guidance and VET considering economic demands.
