Recommendations

Recommendations in terms of project planning:

  • Integration into labour market is a time-consuming process; ambitious results may last longer than expected, especially when job entries are foreseen in times of economical challenges (DE2).
  • It is important to include the parents of young migrants into the projects (AT3).
  • Young people’s environments (e.g. parents, school, community organisations, civil society organisations) should be involved with the project, as brokering relations between target groups and civil society cannot succeed without the cooperation of civil society (NL3).
  • Projects in the area of transition from school to work need a strictly coordinated approach to match existing qualifications with relevant labour market needs of companies (DE1).
  • To realize an impact and quantitative effects a project must have appropriate size and duration; additionally, both a bottom-up approach and a top-down approach is necessary to run the activities successfully. Suitable and supportive framework conditions from policies and people are necessary (DE3).
  • The integration of project activities into existing structures must be considered right from the start of the project to sustain the effects (NL1).
  • Linkages with labour market should be operated through practical input from professionals instead from teachers to raise attention and belief (NL2).
  • Project activities should be embedded into existing structures on the spot for the sake of sustainability (NL2).
  • When providing support in access to the labour market the existing framework conditions of the target group should be taken into account (housing, finance, emotional well-being, family relationships, health) (UK2).
