Upskilling, re-skiling and employing refugees is a one day experts’ forum which is co-organised by Cedefop and OECD and will take place on Monday, 3 October 2016 in Rome.
The forum will examine the role of VET and VET-related skill development strategies as part of pre-arrival (transition countries) and national solutions (host countries) aimed at early labour market integration of the current wave of adult people in clear need of international protection.
The event aims at:
- supporting exchange of national experiences;
- discussing European solutions that favour an effective integration of adults in clear need of international protection in the EU labour market, encompassing the country of destination, EU and non-EU transit countries.
Discussions are expected to have both a technical and policy nature, and will be interdisciplinary with issues touching upon VET, active labour market policies and migration.
