Go on Job is a KA2 Strategic Partnership focusing and working on the analysis of the following points:
1) The evidence of the huge amount of opportunities the European Union offers to young people to find a job, a traineeship, a volunteer activity
2)The most recent trend of youth work that demonstrates how youth organisations engaging in youth work have the potentiality to implement activities specifically focused on fostering employability.
Putting these two elements together, the project faces two priorities: promoting quality of youth work and promoting empowering of young people. The two selected priorities have in the project, as a whole, a different weight but are closely interconnected. The project flow of activity and the designed working plan have been structured according to these priorities, with the aim to offer to youth workers learning opportunities and skills development on a sector that can facilitate youth employability, labour and educational mobility.
According to the project priorities and main objective, the project is going to design and implement a course, including a kit of tools (released on a e-learning platform) for youth workers to let them increasing their competences on the labour market framework and on the opportunities the Union offers to young people with the final aim to foster employability, at local level, valorising, in particular, the opportunity the EU offers to young people.
The online course contains the following four modules:
- An overview of the opportunities the EU offers to young people searching for a job with a focus on the EURES services;
- A selection of European best practices on youth work activities clearly oriented towards fostering the labour market integration of young people;
- A selection of tools to create a CV, a letter of presentation, a personal book of oneself works etc.
The partners will design, implement, evaluate and test the course by a team project that includes both youth workers with the external collaboration of a selected group of people, including experts of the labour market policies, and organisations representing the project stakeholders.
After the course testing phase, a selected group of youth workers will manage a series of labs in schools, youth associations or youth centres and VET organisations, to prove the effectiveness of the learned lessons. The implementation of labs will let the youth workers to test, in practice, the new competencies and skills acquired and will let the participating young people to increase their knowledge of the labour market framework, including the opportunities the UE offers to them in this sector.
