|Modernising and Strengthening Employment Services|
This document summarises outcomes from EQUAL
Development Partnerships (DPs), which provide examples of good
practice that can inform initiatives aimed at modernising and
strengthening employment services for disadvantaged people. It also
includes annotated references to the EU policy context and relevant
background material which can be accessed on-line through hyperlinks.

EQUAL DPs have promoted staff development and new forms of training to improve the anti-discrimination skills of professionals in employment services and other labour market actors to detect, and cope with, discriminatory practices that disadvantaged groups often face in recruitment and placement processes.
Existing mainstream services are not always well-equipped to respond to the needs of immigrants and other disadvantaged groups. EQUAL DPs have tackled this issue in a number of ways, often by ensuring that members of the services' staff are training in intercultural communication and/or through the provision of multi-lingual information and advice.
