Improved Future

Improved Future

The aim is to assist/train individuals involved in the guidance and counselling sector and educational sector to increase their knowledge and understanding of the barriers that encumber immigrants.

Objective

With the enlargement of the European Union and the general global situation, people immigrate to other countries for various reasons. Being an immigrant in a new country brings certain demands in order to adapt, such as learning the new language, culture and society in order to become fully integrated and independent. One of the most powerful ways to independence is employment, but for immigrants this is much harder. It is established that immigrants in Europe have a much lower participation rate in the labour than the natives of the land they reside in.

Main aim

The specific aim of the project is to assist/train individuals involved in the guidance and counselling sector and educational sector to increase their knowledge and understanding of the barriers that encumber immigrants and promote social dialogue in order to facilitate better support for immigrants.
