BRAVE – Bricking Adult’s future Via Empowerment
BRAVE aims to empower unemployed adults who have difficulties in finding a new employment because of the increasingly specialised skills required by the market.
Project Number: 2017-1-RO01-KA204-037257
Funded by: Erasmus+ Duration: 01/10/2017 – 30/09/2019
Since 2008, the economic crisis has strongly affected EU society, particularly employment. The labor market has undergone significant changes and is facing a number of challenges, including the discrepancy between the educational offer and market demand, low levels of qualification and limited ability to create new jobs.
Unemployment is a priority issue that must be addressed. According to EU, the most affected are people in the age range of 30-60, in particular low skilled adults (primary or lower secondary education), who have lost their job and cannot find a new one due to the more specialised skills required by the market.
In general, data show that 25% of EU adults have not achieved an upper secondary qualification that is the educational level currently regarded as the basic requirement for successful entry to the labor market (Eurostat EU LFS). Moreover, 6.5% of adults have not completed any formal education beyond the primary level.
The project aims to empower unemployed adults (aged 30-60) who have difficulties in finding new employment because of the increasingly specialised skills required by the market. To this end, BRAVE will develop specific learning paths supporting adults to reconsider their life and expectations and to become aware of their own professional ambitions and objectives.
