The WBT – work based training project website is available.
What is the starting point of this project?
Entering the labour market successfully when schooling is finished is a challenge to young people all over Europe, especially if they are considered disad-vantaged. The problem is not only visible in the economically weaker countries in Southern and Eastern Europe, but is also evident in the stronger countries. The barriers that disadvantaged young people face are generally the lack of a proper school degree or educational qualifications, often accompanied by family related problems. On top of this, recently immigrated young people often deal with insufficient language skills that are imperative for passing a vocational training program and for finding a job successfully.
