Following the interruption caused by COVID-19 pandemic, a new cycle of InGioco career guidance workshops will start in September. To find out more about the application procedure, please read the call below.
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
IN GIOCO is a project implemented in the Municipality of Palermo, aimed at fostering migrant people’s access to career guidance services, enhance their opportunities into new fields and promote entrepreneurship through skills deepening and paths of self-enhancement. IN GIOCO is supported by Fondazione Con il Sud.
Art. 1 –Subject
SEND, as IN GIOCO project’s coordinator, in cooperation with Per Esempio Onlus and CESIE, is opening a call for participation in a training on secondary level job guidance training with the support of training counsellors and tutors in order to explore and develop one’s skills in facing the labour market’s issues consciously. Participants will be supported to understand what “soft skills” are, why they are so important in the labour market and how to recognise them and distinguish them from the “hard skills”. Innovative ideas in the social sector will be also explored, while stimulating the development of an entrepreneurial vision focusing on the distinction between various social enterprises.
The secondary level job guidance training is aimed to analyse participants’ interests and aspirations and support them to gain self-reliance in looking for new jobs. The understanding of one’s own needs and capabilities, along with the analysis of the labour market’s requirements allows the development of a greater research capability and increases the chances to find a job that matches with one’s own competences.
This call for applications will allow the selection of 20 foreign participants who reside in the Municipality of Palermo and are interested in undertaking a 38 hours secondary level job guidance training which includes:
- Practical activities allowing the exchange of views and the better understanding of one’s own competences. Some non-formal activities will be also carried out in order to foster a reflection on one’s own competences and aspirations, through discussions with others and self-reflection;
- Guided tour in established enterprises that will enable participants to discover new realities so as to stimulate self-entrepreneurship processes;
For further information about the call, please contact Marzia Campione of Per Esempio ONLUS, by sending her an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling her at +39 392 4474527 (phone calls – SMS – WhatsApp).
