Title mature@EQF European Qualification in Age-Diverse Recruiting
Project Number LLP-LdV/TOI/2008/AT/0008
Project Type Transfer of Innovation
Marketing Text mature@EQF transfers the mature@eu e-learning platform to further eight countries in Europe; namely to the Czech Republic, Belgium, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Spain and Turkey.
Summary Despite all predictions of a tightening labour market in the near future, the recruitment policies of organisations remain predominantly youth oriented. Most key persons with an influence on recruitment policies are ill-prepared to meet the challenges associated with HRM practices for attracting job applicants from diverse age groups. This assumption is supported by the remarkably high public interest in the work and outcomes of the past LdV pilot project mature@eu (www.mature-project.eu/) - a project which seeks to enable HRM and recruiters to introduce age-diverse recruitment procedures via an open source e-learning platform and the provision of a comprehensive toolbox.
Description The experiences made during the mature@eu project run highlight a substantial need of practical support and guidance in this respect. Therefore, the core objective of the ‘Transfer of Innovation’ project mature@EQF is to broaden the geographical scope of the toolbox and the e-learning platform to eight (8) countries and eight (8) languages, as well as to integrate the qualification acquired through the e-learning modules into the EQF.
