Employability, Entrepreneurshio and Recovery (EEAR)
The Project Employabillity, Entrepreneurship and Recovery (EEAR) seeks to address Good Practices already developed by the partner countries in relationship to Empowerment, Employability and Entrepreneurship training programmes. EEAR brings together 5 organisations (among others the Dutch Foundation), expert in working with the most marginilised and excluded members of society.
The European Commission’s Europe 2020 Strategy focuses on reducing poverty, the challenge of reducing poverty risk is linked to the inequality debate. The European Pillar of Social Rights presented by the European Commission in April 2017 addresses income inequality more explicitly. The third principle of the Pillar sets out the right to equal opportunities for all. Of the 14 headline indicators in the accompanying Social Scoreboard, one relates directly to income inequality, while several others address policy areas closely related to combatting rising income inequality and providing more equal chances. This Project seeks to address this, in particular by sharing the Good Practices already developed by the partner countries in relationship to Empowerment, Employability and Entrepreneurship training programmes.
EEAR brings together 5 organisations expert in working with the most marginilised and excluded members of society from 4 partner countries: Scotland, Italy, Sweden and The Netherlands. Within this Project we seek to promote Social Inclusion for some of the most excluded members of society by supporting them on their journey of re-integration into vocational training , employment and self-employment by each of the partners sharing our current successful programmes, comparing what works well and areas for development in order to enhance the quality of provision for this specialist group and other disadvantaged groups within society . This will, in turn result in the development of relevant and high-quality skills and competences as the quality of the training programmes will be enhanced and further developed as a result of this Project in all four partner countries.
The Kick off Meeting in Glasgow, will be followed up by an EEAR meeting in Lanciano, Italy, March 1st -3rd. Soon more news.
