Skills2Work: Valuing Skills of Beneficiaries of International Protection in the European Union

Title: HOME/2014/AMIF/AG/ASYL/7857

Project description:

Across the EU persons benefitting from international protection struggle to find jobs and when employed, experience significant levels of over-qualification and brain waste. Early labour market engagement is a key determinant of labour market success of these immigrants. The Skills2Work project therefore strives to create better conditions for early and successful labour market integration of the beneficiaries of international protection. It intends to do so by developing of a set of practical guidelines on strengthening skill validation and early job-matching in the asylum procedure and reception of the beneficiaries of international protection. The project also seeks to inform the development of a platform with an online comprehensive tool providing support to target audiences in EU countries, being reception officials and integration service providers, asylum-seekers and beneficiaries of international protection and potential and actual employers.

Project partners include agencies working in the field of recognition and validation of competences, employers, reception agencies, relevant ministries, integration service providers and academia.
