Scoring for Employability Staff Exchange in Elfsborg
Although the European economy is flourishing and the amount of available jobs is back on the level before the financial crisis in 2008, a lot of young people are still struggling to find decent jobs. They are NEET’s or have a distance to the labour market and need additional support to give them the right employability and life skills that employers are looking for. From the 23rd until the 27th of October 2018 the staff of IF Elfsborg, Feyenoord Rotterdam Foundation, Rosenborg Ballklub and Links Park Community Trust will come together to share best practice methodologies and activities of their existing youth employment programmes and discuss possible further development opportunities.
The EFDN members deliver already various programmes to improve the employability of young people of their local communities. In line with the main objective of the Erasmus Plus programme, the youth worker mobility project “Scoring for Employability” aims to bring youth workers together to exchange ideas and methods in order to enhance the quality of their local sport based employability and educational programmes and activities.
New methods and best practices
The project aims to develop new inspirational methods and training activities to use football as a tool for enhancing social inclusion and employability through the development of employability skills in football based community programmes. During the project participating organisations will share their experiences and approaches to promote sports and football as a tool for social development and football-based employability programmes in their local communities. The staff exchange will be a combination of presentations of best practices, group discussions and practical insights.
