Partner organisations formed a strategic partnership to share experiences related to facilitating the development of students employability competence development and their entry into the labour market. All partners want to respond to the challenges of the labour market and prevent students' unemployment. The project is designed to help the participants to connect their interests and abilities with a profession they want to choose in the future. The participants of the project will obtain both theoretical and practical skills in the field of professional and career development. As a result of implementation of this project the students will have an individual portfolio which will serve as a starting point in the development of their employability competence and some other important for employment skills such as writing a CV, having an interview, working in a team, planning and realization of goals, time-management and financial competence. The activities will take place in the form of 4 topical units and 4 meetings in the different countries: The topical Units will cover the following topics:
- Uncover yourself
- Practice makes perfect
The students will analyse the situation in their country labour market regarding the most demanded professions. Moreover, meetings with representatives of different professions will become a part of the training. Besides, the portfolio can be later used as an example of the accumulated experience and personal growth for other students wishing to complete the course. 4 meetings will take place in 4 different participant countries. Each partner country has an expertise area in which they are better than other countries participating in the project. The meetings in different countries will give the participants the opportunity to explore the situation in each separate country, to get the experience of a particular school and to participate in the events only available in a specific environment of every country and school. These meeting will also foster such important skills nowadays as employability and socio-educational and personal development, as well as participation in civic and social life. It will also develop partnerships between learning institutions, will give the participants different views on lifelong learning and will improve the quality and effectiveness of learning mobility experiences.
