“Bridging the gap from reception to integration. A Holistic Approach to the Labour Integration through a multi-stakeholder cooperation in Athens, Greece”.

The objective of this pilot action is to improve the capacity of the target group to activate integration paths based on labour market inclusion together with protection against exploitation and undeclared work. The aim is the activation of multi-stakeholder cooperation for integration through labour-related activities (integration training seminars) for the benefit of international protection seekers together with a pilot testing of the EU Skills Profile Tool.

The pilot action is implemented by the Athens Labour Unions Organization (EKA) and the Vocational Training Centre of the Hellenic Confederation of Professionals, Craftsmen and Merchant (KEK GSEVEE) in cooperation with the Municipality of Athens and a number of local civil society organisations.

KEK GSEVEE will undertake the design and implementation of training seminars addressed to migrants and refugees. Their aim is to provide participants with introductory knowledge and bring them closer to the local labour market through vocational training actions in the field of digital competences. Digital competence is the set of skills, knowledge and attitudes, that enable the confident, creative and critical use of technologies and systems.
