Project Number 2013-1-HR1-LEO02-03116
Project Type Mobility - people in the labour market PLM
Individual Participation Possible until: 25.10.2013
10 young people (cooks, waiter, hotel – tourist technician, agriculture technicians, food technician, graphic designer and economist) spent two weeks of work practice in Portsmouth, UK in order to gain first or additional work experience and become more competitive in the labour market.
4 employees of Croatian Employment Service (counsellors for project implementation) spent two weeks of work practice in Krakow, Poland in order to acquire new and additional knowledge, skills and competences in preparing and implementing EU funded projects and increase their capacities for project management.
The project WORK ABROAD lasted 21 months and included two target groups.
Two weeks mobility to Portsmouth, UK included 10 unemployed persons up to 29 years old from Osijek-Baranja County who finished high school or have university degree, with no or maximum up to one year of work experience in their professions in the fields of hospitality, tourism, agriculture, food and graphic industries and economic sector. Given that no work experience or lack of it makes it difficult for unemployed persons to find employment, the project contributed to the development of professional and personal knowledge, skills and competencies of unemployed persons to become more competitive in the Croatian and European labour market.
Two weeks mobility to Krakow, Poland enabled 4 employees of the Croatian Employment Service Regional Office Osijek, Department for project implementation, to gain new and additional professional knowledge and skills, increase their capacities for project management and take over the examples of good practice in order to be more successful in preparation and implementation of projects funded by the EU structural funds (beneficiaries of projects are CES parties - unemployed persons) and thus contribute to higher absorption of funds.
