Immigrants struggle to find their way into the labour market. This is true for first generation immigrants, but also for the second generation. The lack of ‘Human capital’ is an important element in explaining the poor labour market position of migrants. Migration implies a loss of economical, cultural & social capital. The ‘traditional’ labour market instruments focus mainly on economical capital by offering language courses, vocational training etc. but don’t assess the problem of a lack of social capital (e.g. social networks), cultural capital (e.g. what are the workfloor habits in certain sectors) & information capital. In this sense current ‘standard’ labour market instruments fall short to strengthen the position of this group. A new instrument in this context, is ‘mentoring to work’. Mentoring to work has gained popularity, especially in Europe and Canada. However, some additional steps must be taken in order to guarantee and safeguard the quality of mentoring to work as an instrument of active labour market policy. This project aims to contribute to this process, by providing more insights with regard to the effectiveness of mentoring and its preconditions, to work about quality criteria for mentoring & governance of mentoring.
