Employment 4 Inclusion project (E4I) focuses on one of the biggest challenges regarding the integration of migrants, newcomers, asylum seekers and refugees (MNAR) in Europe: how to deliver the best intervention model to promote their social and labour inclusion. Greece, Italy and Spain are currently the main destinations of the migration flows to the EU, while France and Denmark are hosting countries for refugees, asylum seekers and migrants. Despite the profiles of the target groups are slightly different in the partner’ countries (nationalities, type of migration, etc.), they all share common needs regarding the social and labour inclusion of MNAR.
With the above in mind, E4I aims at fostering the social and labour inclusion of migrants, newcomers, asylum seekers and refugees with the following objectives:
- Develop and provide an integral training program for professionals with the most innovative tools and an interactive model for the social and labour inclusion of MNAR.
- Provide professionals working with migrants with the necessary guidance and tools to conduct integral support of MNAR with the backing and collaboration of public bodies and companies.
- Promote social inclusion and civic participation of MNAR by developing their labour and social skills as well as by developing and testing effective methods for reaching out these groups.
- Offer practical solutions and policy recommendations for institutions, companies and social organisation at local, regional, national and European levels, to improve the social-labour inclusion of MNAR.
INTELLECTUAL OUTPUTS (IO)
IO1. “E4I E-Learning Hub for Improving the Intervention of Professionals Working with Migrants, Newcomers, asylum seekers, and refugees”.
The E4I E-Learning Hub is conceived as an Open and Interactive Educational Resource for improving the intervention of professionals working with migrants, newcomers, asylum seekers, and refugees.
This Output is comprised of (a) Hub for Best Practices in Social and Labour Inclusion of MNAR; and (b) Learning Area for Professionals.
IO2. “E4I Interactive Model for Social and Labour Inclusion: innovative professional tools for enabling the social and labour inclusion of migrants, newcomers, asylum seekers and refugees”.
The E4I Interactive Model for Social and Labour Inclusion is an innovative interactive model for conducting an integral and transversal intervention with MNAR, covering all the dimensions to this end.
Hence, skills and competences of professionals dealing with MNAR should be fostered in order to address the specific needs of these groups in terms of labour and social inclusion.
To this end, this Interactive Model will be expressed and articulated in the “E4I Integration System”, 6 counseling zones to provide the best intervention to MNAR, plus one introductory module.
IO3. “E4I Guidelines for Engaging Public Administrations and Companies in the social and labour inclusion of Migrants, Newcomers, Asylum Seekers, and Refugees”.
Employment 4 Inclusion Guidelines for Engaging Public Administrations and Companies will provide innovative methods and tools for professionals to engage and support public bodies and companies for the social and labour inclusion of MNAR.
Consequently, the E4I Guidelines will be split into two zones: one addressed to engage public bodies, and the other one for involving and guiding companies.
