Refugees' resettlement and recognition of professional competences

The first Multiplier Event of “MiGreat” in Italy will take place in Verona, on November 24th, 2017. It will be addressed to decision-makers, workers and researchers active in the fields of migrants’ and refugees’ vocational training, counselling and employability. The results achieved up to now by the project (the research and the prototypes of the app and of the learning platform) will be showed in a wider frame: the topic of refugees’ resettlement and the work to be done in order to recognize and improve their professional competences. The event is promoted by the two Italian partners of MiGreat! (Traing 2000 and Glocal Factory) and by ASFE, an important CVET provider, active in the counties of Verona and Trento.

CVET Case study and Extended Needs Analysis

The “CVET Case Study and extended Needs Analysis” identifies the needs of job agencies, migrant organisations and training organisations in assessing the needs of migrants and refugees in connection with CVET (Continuous Vocational Education and Training) and APL (Accreditation of Prior Learning), in the participating countries: Austria (AT), Greece (EL), Italy (IT), Switzerland (CH), Sweden (SE) and the United Kingdom (UK).  As different sectors are significant for labour market development and dynamics in each country, the local research was conducted with a focus on the following sectors: Agriculture (CH, IT), Construction (IT), Health (SE, UK), Retail (AT, CH), Services (SE, UK), Textile (IT) and Tourism (AT, EL).

The report gathers results from 104 surveys from relevant fields of expertise in partners’ countries, desk research on local context of migrants, target-sectors and national schemes for CVET and APL. In addition, 13 case studies provide the necessary info for the app design developed under the second output of the project.

At the end of the report a set of needs and recommendation are identified to support the development of the MiGreat! training modules.

The report is downloadable in the Outputs section.
