The guidance is designed to be of use to you whether you are just starting to design your record system or have an existing model which you wish to update.
You can also focus on one or more individual elements of the process, or study the whole end-to-end methodology.
Below are links to documents and presentations from best practice case studies, and a number of videos produced for the LTU Project which contain interviews with beneficiaries of the initiative.
Feel free to browse the Key Steps below by clicking on the bubbles!
These Key Steps pages will be further updated with more videos, case studies and documents. If you want to be kept updated, please log in with your user account, and use the "Subscribe" function at the bottom of this page or of a particular KS page.
This Bubble Graph is designed to assist you in focussing your search for information on themes which you need to explore when developing your systems. If you currently do not have a system for capturing a single case history, or are at an early stage of development, you can systematically investigate the Key Steps from 1 through to 9. However, if you are at a more advanced stage, or have a specific enquiry about one element of the development process you can access information in the Bubble(s) most matching your specific area(s) of interest. Each KS webpage includes a short description + a series of Milestones or highlighted points + links to related cases, videos or documents also available in the LTU repositories.
They have been collected on a European base by the LTU project partners
They illustrate one or more milestones of the Key Steps.
Relevance of a case to a Key Step is detailed in the corresponding page of a Key Step, but the cases can/should also be considered on a global approach without being kept in the only context of a specific Key Step.
"Job Carving and Job Crafting", ESF TP EU Publication by A. Scoppetta, E. Davern and L. Geyer. Job carving and job crafting can be effective strategies to overcome the challenges of labour market integration of people facing multiple barriers, in particular the long-term unemployed. This paper gives an overview of these strategies, presents promising practices and sets out recommendations for future measures, also in the context of ESF interventions.
"Distance travelled for long-term unemployed people", ESF TP EU Publication by S.A. Barnes and S. Wright. This report examines the different models used to design, assess, record and evaluate soft outcomes and ‘distance travelled’ in terms of employability, for long-term unemployed participants of Active Labour Market Policies.
A general presentation of the Key Steps and LTU project is available in the section "Key Steps and Repositories". The below list corresponds to the links include in the Bubble graph:
KS1 - Purpose of policy Council Recommendation (2016/c 67/01) calls for LTU persons to be offered a job integration agreement with an individual service offer delivered through a single point of contact.
KS3 - Policy Statement The partner organisations supporting the LTU clients’ integration pathways should develop an Information and Client Records Management Policy.
KS4 - Procedures It is necessary to determine whether one (lead) organisation should host a new combined network or existing systems should be merged.
KS5 - Stakeholder Buy-In All partners will support the objective of promoting clients’ labour market integration, though each stakeholder will also have their own agency objectives relating to their professional specialism.
