Make it Happen

The training activity took place
in London
organised by One Terrene International

Aims & objectives

Youth unemployment in the EU has increased drastically over the last few years and the opportunities for young people to find employment are becoming lesser by the day. We can see that many companies are seeking employees but the advantage is now in the hands of the employer creating the need for employees to be more competitive in order to find employment.

This training course will look at ways of helping young people to become more innovative in their approach to employment and to maximise their talents and skills to be more attractive to the employers. The training course is designed for people working in the field of youth and with youth to give them the needed tools to help young people in their communities to increase their employability. The training course will help youth workers develop workshops and activities in their communities to help more young people.

The main issues addressed in this training course are youth unemployment and the labour market. We will cover topics like cross boarder employment, labour market trends, needs of the markets, skills of young people and the trends that young people follow. Looking at these needs we will understand the different markets and develop the tools needed to help young people increase their chances of employment.

The outcomes of the training course will allow youth workers and trainers to help young people develop their entrepreneurial skills with emphasis on understanding labour markets and issues of cross border employment so that they can overcome the obstacles faced in the labour market today.
