    Helping unemployed creating their own work in the new economy

    PES support for start-ups – what is effective?

    A September 2017 study presents the lessons learnt from the vast PES experience in offering start-up support to jobseekers who want to become self-employed or start their own business. It provides a basis for PES needing to navigate the increasingly globalised and digitalised world of self-employment, and effectively guide jobseekers wishing to embark on such an experience.

    If well-designed and targeted, start-up incentives and support have proven effective in bringing unemployed back to the labour market. In the longer term, there is even a job-creation effect.

    Well-designed start-up support requires specialist trainers and advisers. It is also recommended to offer a mix of support measures, including appropriate benefits, access to capital, training, counselling and guidance.

    European Alliance for Apprenticeships - Assessment of progress and planning the future - Annexes

    The EAfA is part of the EU’s strategy to tackle high youth unemployment and to provide the skills that are needed to ensure sustainable growth and jobs. It is supported by a Joint Declaration and Council Declaration that emphasised the need to improve the supply, quality and image of apprenticeships across Europe. Steered by the European Commission, supported by Cedefop and the European Training Foundation (ETF), the EAfA is a multi-stakeholder platform for knowledge sharing, networking and exchange of good practices. It is based on voluntary commitments from participating governments and from a large scale of stakeholders.

     

    The aim of this study is to assess the achievements and impact of the EAfA at the level of the national commitments, pledges as well as the EAfA support activities since its launch in 2013. Through consultation with government representatives and a range of key stakeholders, the study provides key recommendations on how to further develop the EAfA in order to maximise its benefits. It proposes a methodology for a ‘light’ monitoring of the national commitments and pledges under the EAfA. Quality examples of good practices in the implementation of national commitments and pledges will also be collected through the EAfA monitoring framework. Procedures aimed at re-engaging non-active members have also been incorporated into the EAfA monitoring framework.

    Progress across Europe in the implementation of the 2013 EU Recommendation on “Investing in children: Breaking the cycle of disadvantage”: A study of national policies

    In 2013, the European Commission adopted a Recommendation on Investing in children: Breaking the cycle of disadvantage which sets out a common European Framework for tackling child poverty and social exclusion and promoting child well-being. To support the Commission in taking stock of the Recommendation’s implementation and identify key ways forward, the European Social Policy Network (ESPN) was asked to prepare country reports on the implementation of the Recommendation since 2013.

    The overall finding of the ESPN analysis is that the modest progress made in the direction outlined in the Recommendation is insufficient to the scale of the problem in many countries. Particularly worrying is the very limited progress that has been made in many of the countries with (very) high levels of child poverty or social exclusion. A significant intensification of effort is thus urgently required to achieve the aims of the EU Recommendation.

    This Synthesis Report brings together the findings of the national reports written by each of the 35 ESPN Country Teams of independent experts and makes a series of detailed overall recommendations for strengthening the implementation of the EU Recommendation and linking it to the implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights put forward by the European Commission in April 2017. Concrete actions are also recommended for individual countries.

    Bijscholingstrajecten - Nieuwe leermogelijkheden voor volwassenen

    Lezen, schrijven, eenvoudige berekeningen maken en een computer gebruiken: het zijn dingen die we elke dag doen. We brengen onze basisvaardigheden in de praktijk, meestal zonder erbij stil te staan.
    Toch zijn die dingen niet voor iedereen evident. Voor bijna 70 miljoen mensen in Europa vormen die eenvoudige taken, die voor anderen vanzelfsprekend zijn, een struikelblok.
    De nieuwe «bijscholingstrajecten» zullen die mensen, ongeacht of zij werken, werkloos zijn of economisch niet-actief, een nieuwe start bieden door de kennis en vaardigheden die zij al bezitten in kaart te brengen en te erkennen, hen aanvullend onderwijs of een opleiding aan te bieden en hen uiteindelijk naar een nieuwe kwalificatie te leiden
