We are almost halfway through the implementation of the active employment policy project "The Right Way" and so this is an opportunity for a small recapitulation.
Besides enjoying the city of Madrid, there was an interesting training going on last week in the capital of Spain for the RED project.
Although it seems incredible, we have finished and we'd like to recapitulate what we have achieved during the Royal Chance project. It’s been two years since we introduced the project to the Labour Office in Zlin and offered a London internship to the first group of young people without work.
The project, focused on the implementation of gender audits in small and medium-sized enterprises in the Zlín Region, continues successfully in its second half. All 6 employers from the Zlín Region were already involved as planned. They are mostly small companies with 10-50 employers and one medium-sized company with more than 50 employees.
For the participants of The Right Way project we offer the opportunity to participate in a series of motivational workshops focused on a job search.
The Kick-off meeting of the RED project partners (RED = Reinforce Europeans Digital, literacy and numeracy skills) took place on 27-28 November 2017 in Burgh-Haamstede (NL).
More and more governments are working with digital (social) services, it is essential to equip this group of people with basic to low literacy and numeracy and low digital knowledge, which promotes an inclusive European society where the citizens are self=reliant involved and empowered.
Within the project " Keep pace – Improving the status of women 55+ in the labour market in the Zlin region" Google Picasa photo editing training course was held on November 30, 2017.
The third episode of the project Royal chance or Come and work in England is now over. Five of the young people from Zlín, Kroměříž and Holešov came back from London with the enthusiasm of the newly acquired knowledge and experience. They all worked in similar positions as their predecessors and most appreciated the opportunity to improve in English in a natural environment.
The project focuses on a support of people that are long-term unemployed and come from the Zlín Region. The target group is made of people registered in a Job office for 12 months and more. This group is among the most endangered in the labour market, its share in total unemployment in the Zlín Region is more than 30%.
