From 27th to 28th of October 2015 at Malta, we have held second international meeting of partners involved in implementation of the “Young people at the labor market” project. Experts from all partners institutions participated in the meeting.
During the meeting, partners have discussed the progress and the results of research carried out during the development of the first intellectual output ("Diagnosis of skills and competencies of youth and expectations of employers"). They have also discussed about actions needed to complete the work on the second intellectual output - scenarios for the development of soft skills and competences of young people.
On 04-06.02.2015 the first international meeting of the project partners was held. The meeting was organized in Bratislava and was attended by representatives of all partner organizations.
The main objectives of the meeting were:
Young people, in the opinion of employers, are not enough prepared to the labour market. Not every graduate is able to find a job and even if he/she finds it, not everybody is able to meet expectations of the employer. Young people during their studies often do not take the additional activity associated with involvement into student's unions or NGOs. Most of them do not take additional internships and practices in line with their profession. Their skills, competences and expectations often fail to match what is expected from them at the labour market.
The Strategic Partnership we establish aims to diagnose the problem and to reply to it effectively through cooperation, experience and information exchange, development of didactic materials (lesson and workshops scenarios for youth organizations, schools and universities), development of the audiovisual didactic materials.
Moreover we will also conduct info campaign, which will inform young people how to get prepared to the requirements of the modern labor market. The Strategic Partnership involves the cooperation of Polish Slovak, Italian and Maltese institutions at the regional level and includes: NGOs, youth organizations, trade unions and production company.
The project is innovative, as it presupposes comprehensive measures to support both young people and people who work with them.
In addition, the outputs developed under the project activities are based on results of the research about level of competences of young people and direct opinions and expectations of employers in 4 countries of the European Union.
An important element of the project is also to promote active citizenship of young people, to show that social skills can be purchased not only in the workshops and interpersonal trainings, but may be acquired mainly by acting in youth organizations, pursuing own local or international projects, co-organizing the activities of NGOs, taking an active part in student life, as well as conscious selection of internships and apprenticeships.
