TECNALIA EVALUATES THE INITIATIVE FOR TRAINED YOUNG PEOPLE LOOKING FOR WORK

2016.04.18

A pilot test of the Youthemploy project has been carried out among the potential targets of the initiative.

Through the Youthemploy project, which aims to design a placement scheme for young people looking for work, TECNALIA wishes to contribute to raising the employment rate of the member countries to 75% in the population between the ages of 20 and 64. This figure is a far cry from the current unemployment rates in each member country, as is the case of Spain: 53.6% United Kingdom: 30%, Ireland: 26%, Belgium: 24.1% and Lithuania: 21.1%

The aim of the project is to introduce an option that is workable and beneficial for young people who are ready to work in terms of education and skills, but who remain unemployed due to the lack of opportunities to demonstrate their capabilities and ability to perform their duties in particular. To do this, a methodology to accompany young people has been developed, supported by a web platform which guides the process and collects information relevant to it, strengthening the links between education and professional training.

TECNALIA has carried out the pilot test of this initiative through a discussion group in which the different materials, the research work carried out, the three guides developed and the online platform on which the initiative is based have been presented.

The feedback obtained concluded that the tool contributes directly to the assessment and evaluation of the progress of the placement periods, enables objectives to be agreed with those responsible for said placement periods in order to make a joint evaluation or save the necessary documents. The need to integrate all of the offers and opportunities in the companies was also identified. In relation to the usability of the tool, students evaluated the platform favourably.

The findings will be incorporated on the platform during the next phase of the initiative.
