Open the Door To Europe

2014-1-ESO-1-KA204-004738

Description of the project

Unemployment affects many people in all European Union member countries, yet there are variations from country to country. But in all of them, without exception, young people are the most disadvantaged segment of the population. Free mobility between Europe does not necessarily facilitate the problem, immigrants often encounter additional barriers to employment such as lack of language skills or cultural differences.

Objectives

To improve the quality of adult education and training by promoting access to innovative educational tools and learning materials for all stakeholders in adult education – both teachers/trainers and learners
To provide teachers with the necessary tools to improve the foreign language competences of the target group of young people, both job seekers and university graduates who are looking for a better job in multinational companies. Newly arrived immigrants in need of social and labour market inclusion. Administrative and academic staff seeking promotion in their current job.
