EFT

Experience for Training

The category of people "at risk of poverty" has expanded in recent years, as it has outlined a kind of "disadvantaged user" presenting multi-problematic characteristics. For this "disadvantaged user", traditional training, work placements and standard paths of employment are no longer an effective solution for integration into the labour market.

Another challenge of the economic crisis has been the re-distribution of funds towards countries with a deeper development gap (the so-called social security nets), leading to a progressive decrease in public funding and resources for education and training throughout Europe.

This project will enhance work-based learning paths, inspired by the Belgium model of social enterprise where the training activity is intrinsically linked to a production activity that generates incomes. The project develops a tailored model and professional profile to promote the EFT experience.
