CCEE - Culture et Citoyenneté Européenne pour l'Employabilité

This project aims at developing knowledge and skills to prepare migrant workers for entering European labour markets by promoting and disseminating training contents and approaches to adult education organisations, social workers, institutions, labour offices and migration organisations.

The project thereby targets at construction and cleaning sectors and, especially, at respective enterprises, since the ultimate target beneficiaries are migrant workers.

The objectives of CCEE are

  1. To design a tool in order to increase the migrants' knowledge regarding the host country context dealing with the social and cultural environment, the professional sector they will work in, companies, work legislation and workers' and companies' rights and duties - those elements of culture that have a direct influence on the work situation.
  2. To develop training modules that will allow participants to understand and use the specific vocabulary and language of the job in order to facilitate their integration in a working team and their communication with clients.
  3. To implement training materials in order to be aware of the new context, to be ready for job research, to adopt the expected behaviour and be able to communicate with others and to manage one's time in accordance with the culture of the new country, the type of company and the professional sector.

The project's main products are

  • A guide: "Working in building and construction or in cleaning sectors in four European countries" - aimed at migrant workers and therefore written in an accessible way
  • A toolbox containing a training module to learn specific vocabulary needed for each job and a training module about time management in work situations
  • A project website to provide information about the project and present the material developed.
