Project number: 2016-1-ES01-KA202-025068
Implementation period: 01.12.2016 – 30.11.2018

The main objective of the VALITS project is to help young seasonal workers break the cycle of high season activity followed by low season unemployment. This will happen by creating a tool for validating their informal transversal skills which include key competences such as language skills, interpersonal skills, customer service and organizational skills and that have been gained through their informal and non-formal work experience and learning.
