The Political situation in Near and Middle East and the conflicts in Africa caused a displacement and refugee movement in direction to Europe and there is no end in sight. So lots of refugees will stay in the host countries. That is a challenge for those countries but it might be a benefit as well if integration would be successful. For a long-term and sustainable way of integration and for reducing the risk of exclusion and the related social problems on one hand and using these resources for reducing the lack of qualified employees on the other an early access to preparation and training for the job-market is essential. The refugees bring along very different levels of education and training, different professions and working experience and a wide range of different skills and competences. So they need a tailor-made support and training. Thus we will start our project under the aims to

  • improve and expand activities for integration of refugees in the job-market by identifying good practices for integration of refugees in the further education and presenting the best ones to the public
  • foster knowledge about and the understanding for the different situations and frameworks in the participating countries
  • deepen the mind that integration of refugees is an European challenge and task
  • support networking European wide under the topic integration of refugees in the job-market.
