“EXPERTISE: Exchange of practices to educate, recognise and train inclusive skills for employment” was a 24-month strategic partnership at international level that was implemented between the 01/09/2017 and the 31/08/2019 thanks to the support of the Key Action 2 of the European Commission and its Erasmus+ programme. Coordinated by the Paula Montal school of Logroño (Spain) in cooperation with ASPECT (Bulgaria), ACP (Greece), VsIEduplius (Lithuania), WSBiNoZ (Poland) and PROANDI (Portugal), this initiative aimed to overcome the needs that trainers and educators of young people with fewer opportunities currently face to provide them those interpersonal skills and intrapersonal competences required to guarantee their social inclusion and facilitate their jump from the training and education field to the labour market. Thanks to an interactive work between education bodies, private training entities and non profit organisations, EXPERTISE allowed to create a cooperation framework to make possible an exchange of good practices at European level related to the training of youth for employability but focused on the self analysis and active empowerment of its beneficiaries. In order to make this possible, the project carried out seven transnational meetings on its partner countries with the objective of allowing their attendees to get to know the training programmes on employability of youth at risk of exclusion of the partner organisations, promote the interaction among their teams towards their professional development and discover their most successful methodologies on the mentioned field (that will be replicated and tested afterwards by the staff and beneficiaries of all the project partners on their countries). The project made also possible to test, improve and present the final product of EXPERTISE: a toolkit about the training of young people with fewer opportunities on interpersonal and intrapersonal skills to promote their social inclusion and facilitate their access to the labour market. All the project results are accessible thanks to the different dissemination channels that were created by its partnership and to this project website (that makes possible not only to get to know more about the EXPERTISE, its partners or stages, but also to access to all the materials developed during the project by its partners in a permanent way). Thanks to all these activities and processes, EXPERTISE has contributed to reinforce not only the training of those in charge of guiding the training and inclusion of young people on risk of exclusion, but also to increase the employability of youth at local and transnational level thanks to the use of tools easily transferable to a wide variety of social contexts.
