EU PROGRAMME: Programme Erasmus+ K2 (Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices Strategic partnership)
YEAR: 2016

The Re-inventing Europeans through History, Art and Cultural Learning project is a partnership including different types of organisations from Greece, Slovenia, Sweden, Norway and Italy. The target groups to be supported are the educators of refugee and the refugee learner. The project will provide training for educators in adult learning who will support the refugees into their new country. The general objective of the project is to provide a  pathway to integration through language learning and key skills/job orientation using History, Art and Culture as the basis for the methodology and learning packages to be developed.

People entering European countries after facing the trauma of becoming a refugee are very vulnerable and need a great deal of support and learning to help them establish a foothold in their new country. At the same time many EU countries require to learn very quickly about how best to support the refugees whose knowledge of their new country may be limited and their skills in the language of their new country may be slight or non-existent.

This project requires to be carried out transnationally as each country in the EU is now recognising their responsibility to accept refugees into their communities. Most are very unsure how to approach the education and integration of refugees into their learning establishments, even though they understand the urgent need to try to integrate and educate the refugees into their country in order to satisfy the needs of their current citizens and their new citizens.

The event was aimed at connecting employers in the local and wider environment with representatives of the Employment Service of Slovenia, providers of education and job seekers registered at the Employment Service of Slovenia.

An Employment fair in Litija was held at IC Geoss d.o.o. we decided to organize because we anticipate that the number of unemployed in our local environment and wider would be reduced if more activities were undertaken, where information between employers, institutions and jobseekers would be exchanged about the foreseen needs for personnel and required competencies in the future.

We wanted to show the necessity of lifelong education and training both from the perspective of the individual as well as from the point of view of companies and the whole community, mainly due to rapid daily changes, the development of knowledge and technologies, fierce competition and unstable international conditions. Through the fair, we wanted to establish direct contact between representatives of the Employment Service of Slovenia, employers in the local environment, providers of formal and informal education programs and job seekers. The event was extremely successful. The participation was very numerous, as 213 people attended the event, of which 182 were unemployed, 13 were other jobseekers and 18 representatives from employers from the wider region. The responses of participants and jobseekers were very positive. There have been some concrete employment agreements. We plan to continue this kind of events in the future, and we want to see that the Job Fair in Litija organized by IC Geoss becomes traditional.

With this, we continue with our mission – with the cooperation and integration of IC Geoss with companies and organizations in the local environment, thereby contributing to economic growth and overall progress in the municipality of Litija and beyond.
