Training for Everyone: A Guide to the Planning of Innovative Training and Employment Projects for Unemployed Young People in the European Community.
Ketter, Per-Marcel; And Others
Intended as a planning and implementation aid for European political decision makers and organizers of projects that train and employ disadvantaged young people, this document consists of three sections. The first section systematically elaborates on major planning areas (objectives, pedagogy, integration into employment, staff qualifications, and funding) and includes flowcharts showing various planning stages. The second section consists of a description and analysis of existing innovative approaches to the training and employment of disadvantaged young people. Within that section, the following aspects of the European Community and the innovative approaches are discussed: (1) background information, such as labor market trends and the limits of government; (2) principal functions and basic structures of the innovative projects, including those used to motivate the disadvantaged youth; (3) pedagogical and didactic methods used; and (4) the importance of creating new jobs in which the youth can be employed. The third section contains the appropriate forms of goal-oriented training, the appropriate strategies for integrating the youth into local employment, a set of qualifications for the ideal staff, and the forms of support that are essential. The appendix contains a list of participants who provided the guide's information, project descriptions, and a list of organizational resources and contacts. (CML)
