Young people and trainers invited to free employability skills conference

11 May 2017

Diagrama Foundation is inviting young people and training staff to find out more about improving employability skills of those aged under 30 when a new handbook is unveiled at free conference organised by the GET THERE European project next month.

Delegates attending the event at Europe House in London on June 9, 2017, will have the chance to take part in a series of fun, engaging and interactive workshops and activities presented by experts in the field who will cover topics including:

  • Team work
  • Customer Awareness
  • Exploring Job Opportunities
  • Health and Safety
  • Self-management
  • Rights & Responsibilities
  • Problem solving
  • Communication

Each of the Get There project partners – which, along with Diagrama Foundation, include project leader ASDAN (UK), INFODEF (Spain), ISQ (Portugal), IEKEP (Greece), CARDET (Cyprus) - will be represented at the event aimed at young people as well as professionals in the field of employment, education and the third sector.

The GET THERE project is co-funded by the European Commission's Erasmus+ Programme and aims to identify the needs of young people looking for a job, by addressing the issue of youth unemployment and developing better employability skills for young people in each partner country and the wider European Union.

Project partners have created a handbook as a tool to guide trainers and others professionals working with young people. The conference will showcase the Get There project handbook and discuss ways to ensure that it reaches as many young people as possible now and in the future.

This event is free to attend, although places are strictly limited so registration is essential. You can book your place online here.
