Summary

Socially disadvantaged young people often do not have access to the high quality VET due to their failures in the system of general education and other reasons. These young people present important potential reserves of human capital and their vocational integration is important both from the social and economical point of view. Apprenticeship can become very effective in achieving this goal.
The aim of the project was to develop the sets of instruments of vocational integration of disadvantaged youth based on the innovative solutions and approaches of apprenticeship training.
Social pedagogues, VET teachers and trainers, career counselors working with the socially disadvantaged youth received the instruments which they can directly use in executing apprenticeship training, vocational guidance and counselling of the target group. In short term perspective the usage of these instruments can slightly improve the quality of these processes and attractiveness or apprenticeship to the target group. In long term perspective the developed products will significantly improve the quality and effectiveness of vocational integration of socially disadvantaged youth by improving the skills of the target group and fostering their employment. It will also make the vocational education more attractive and accessible for the socially disadvantaged youth increasing their enrollment in the vocational integration programmes.
