Summary The Placement Support project will focus upon the learning needs of young workers taking up employment in another European country. The project will work with SMEs in particular and will both analyse training needs and develop specific training modules to address identified skills gaps. Initial activity will be in the development of an ICT tool for the analysis and forecasting of training needs, it is further expected that, once developed, this will be able to be applied beyond the remit of the current project. Beyond initial analysis, specific modules will be developed to cover induction, language skills, basic vocational skills and work practice/culture with a further module being developed to cover guidance and personal development issues for internationally mobile young workers. Each partner country will establish a partnership with a select number of SMEs and, where possible, an SME joint-body in their own country. The partnership will research the training modules, provide feedback on product development and both pilot & disseminate project results. Materials will be produced, in all partner languages (NL, DA, ES, IT, FI, EN, IS & EE) in both paper-based and CD-Rom format thus effecting the widest possible distribution.
