tRIED AND TRUE
Developping GOOD PRACTICES post-Erasmus+ for learners, teachers and educators
The first Transnational Project Meeting Agenda took place on the 27th of September 2022 in Saint-Pierre, In Reunion Island
Young adults with the fewest opportunities and job seekers are particularly targeted by training mobility opportunities. In 2019, NEETs (Neither in Employment, nor in Education or Training) represented more than 12.5% of 15-29 year olds in the EU, and the percentage of NEETs among 24-29 year olds is even higher (source INSEE). Some countries, including Italy, Bulgaria, Spain, France (and further more Reunion Island) are particularly affected by this rate of young adults without a stable situation or solution. Long-term unemployment is an aggravating factor: ranging from 30% in Cyprus to 57% in Italy (source OCDE 2019). The Erasmus + program is a vector of integration for this audience. Mobility through internship in companies improves the employability of these adults and their entry or return to the labour market.
description of the project
The TRIED and TRUE project creates an opportunity for cooperation between several European organizations in order to exchange good practices in terms of post-Erasmus monitoring and support (and or other international mobility) for the jobseeker public (NEET adults and long-term unemployed).
