The emergency situation related to the coronavirus created additional challenges in the implementation of the ALTER project. Instead of a face to face partnership meeting on June 30, an online one was held. The economic consequences of the pandemic have yet to be assessed and analyzed, but the sharp rise in unemployment is a fact. Now that the first signs of recovery are in place and the labor market is intensifying, the project's target group is at a disadvantage. Adults who do not have enough skills to take advantage of the new ways of applying for a job preferred by employers. Many of the representatives of the target group, due to their early dropping out of the education system do not have the necessary knowledge and skills to take advantage of modern job search tools, often fall into the trap of misleading ads or find it difficult to present to the employer the skills they possess.

EKS logoThe state of the art analysis of the EKS project discusses the current situation of young adults not in employment, in education nor in training (NEETs) in the partner countries, as well as the measures in place to support their integration into the labour market by presenting the gaps that exist in each context. The report combines both a desk-based research and the results collected from a questionnaire research with the target group (261 responses collected). Also, the report presents existing good practices in each national context that have proved crucial in conceptualizing new innovative solutions for creating an entrepreneurial mindset among disadvantaged youth.

The ALTER project unexpectedly faced a new challenge. On the one hand, the sharp increase in the number of unemployed is related to the Corona virus, a social isolation that, which in addition to the negative consequences for most people, provides additional time for self-study.

This topic, as well as a discussion about the development of the project were the subject of an online meeting between the partners in early June.

ParentBank LogoThe first output on the project ParentBank – “Enhancing the social inclusion of low income single parents” is finalized!
Partners designed a training programme on improving professionals’ ability to foster single parents’ employability, socio-educational and personal development. In total six modules are developed that aim at extending/enhancing the practisers competences in the teaching of literacy, numeracy, entrepreneurial and digital skills (including through the use of digital technologies) so that they will be able to provide tailored training and support to single parents in developing these skills and key competences.

ParentBank LogoThe #ParentBank project aims at facilitating the labour market integration of #low-income single parents by promoting their access to childcare and other service that they may be unable to afford through the #time-banking (providing services to one another) and by developing their skills and entrepreneurial spirit which can improve their #employment status.
