EU employability project will involve high quality resources
Representatives from five European countries met this month to finalise the next stage of an ASDAN-managed international project that aims to tackle youth unemployment and improve young people’s employability skills.
Education professionals from the UK, Greece, Cyprus, Portugal and Spain will work collaboratively to produce a project handbook and training manual for teachers and tutors as part of the EU Erasmus+ project Get There – Journey to Employment. The documents will be available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Greek and Cypriot Greek.
Adrian Sladdin, Project Leader, said: “We are now well into the first year of this fantastic Erasmus+ funded project and everything is progressing according to plan. ASDAN is delighted to be managing this project and overseeing the development of high quality resources. We are creating new training and curriculum models that can be used in the UK and around the world and we are continuing to explore further European funding opportunities.”
The project will provide young people with an effective programme to structure their journey into employment and it is based around ASDAN’s Employability Skills Development course.
