ESTA Bildungswerk  FIBA The direct target groups has been young migrants of Turkish family origin, that are ready to enter IVET after
school. As indirect target groups there were the parents of these youngsters, employers and recruiters, people from community organisations and stakeholders working in the area of integration.
 24 (per city)  The project has not been about education and training in a narrow sense; there were no school subjects taught to the audience (the only subject which can be called a subject of training is job application training).
Important activity as such has been the intensive and personal approach of companies, recruiters and entrepreneurs to find an apprenticeship or a preparatory practice for the audience.
Young people are supported when searching for jobs. They are supported to scan the available job markets, to write application letters, to communicate with employers and to establish confidence.
Parents are informed about the needs, requirements and structures of vocational training in Germany.
Although there is no education in a narrow sense linked, the project seeked to strengthen the competences and capacities in a perspective of lifelong learning.
