Project Type Projets de transfert d'innovation
Employer les jeunes apporte une plus-value à une entreprise :
idées originales, forte motivation, flexibilité et connaissances transférables au regard du degré d'instruction.
D’autre part, surtout pour les petites et moyennes entreprises (PME), l’insertion des jeunes est souvent un grand challenge. Beaucoup de jeunes demandeurs sont sortis tôt du système scolaire, n'ont pas eu/terminé de formation professionnelle, et souvent ils sont désavantagés socio-économiquement et/ou personnellement.
YES répond à la nécessité claire en Europe en général, et en particulier dans les pays associés au projet de renforcer les qualifications des responsables du personnel pour interagir avec les jeunes, qui composeront une proportion considérable de la future main-d'oeuvre.
In many European countries integration into the labour market of early school leavers, young people who have failed to complete vocational education and training and other groups of youth with socio-economic and/or personal disadvantages is rather difficult. Most businesses, especially SME, are very reluctant to employ and/or train such young people or give them a second chance for vocational training, as those responsible for human resources are worried that these youngsters are too “difficult” to deal with and require too much attention and time of their supervisors. Especially in rural regions part of the barrier to cope with this challenge is based on intergenerational misunderstandings. Experiences from previous partner work with young people in large scale job insertion programmes as well as other initiatives indicate that SME are more inclined to employ and/or train “difficult” young people if they receive comprehensive and intensive coaching and training support. There are already many initiatives which target young people, but there is a clear lack of support and training offered to the other side, the potential employers.
The main aim of YES was to respond to the clear need in Europe in general and the project partner countries in particular to strengthen staff managers’ interaction skills with “difficult” youth, who will make up a considerable proportion of the future skilled work force.
Description YES has adapted, combined, and further elaborated the Leonardo da Vinci project products EurojobMediator and ADEC- Adult Educator in Company to a comprehensive youth employment support system for SME and has implemented it in different industrial sectors in seven of the eight partner countries. Thereby SME were to be convinced to employ and/or train young persons.
