Training course for youth workers
22-29 September 2021, Pomorie, Bulgaria
INFORMATION FOR PARTICIPANTS
Why this project?
More and more companies are recruiting online employees, this trend is estimated to increase in the coming years, leading to a situation in which online employment will tend to become the rule rather than the exception. It is crucial, therefore, to train young people in order to adequately prepare them for the changes in the labor market and to become competitive on the online labor market.
The objectives of the training course are:
1. Renewal and improvement of the competencies of youth non-profit organizations in helping young people to get a chance of being hired online and being prepared for different working conditions.
2. Increasing the capacity of non-governmental organizations to help young people increase their personal initiative for the realization of entrepreneurial ideas.
3. To provide the necessary understanding of current trends in the labor market, work from distance and the competencies it requires
4. To increase the ability of non-governmental organizations to support young people living in remote regions, as well as in smaller settlements with a poorly developed labor market, to advise them on overcoming the challenges they face when looking for a job.
5. To improve the understanding of the social, linguistic and cultural differences that occur in work online.
6. To create a more modern and professional environment in organizations: readiness to integrate new and quality practices and methods in their work.
