Title of the project

Inclusion and integration into the labour market for young academics – an innovative trainee approach

Outline of the project idea

In Europe, unemployment increases dramatically in a time of crisis. The new graduates are particularly affected by this in Denmark – almost every fifth graduate is without work - and in other European countries it’s even worse. There has been an extreme worsening of the opportunities for the graduates to enter the labor market, and the past shows us that if you do not get a foothold in the labor market during the first year after your training, it becomes exceptionally hard to get it later in life. Every year there will be new graduates leaving the educational institutions, and the employers may be more interested in them. With this pilot project we will try to do something about it. We will make new cross-country test methods - across sectors in the interaction between private and public actors in order to create new knowledge about the possibilities of including and integrating young academics with a diversified background to the labor market.

We will develop and test innovative working methods and instruments in a one year trainee period for at test group of 20 young people in each country. The participants will be carefully picked taking into consideration to have a diversified group. The young people will during the year be trained, tested and developed in each of the involved companies – 3 months in each company locally – and supplemented with training in communication, networking, personality tests etc. to broaden their view of their possibilities and keeping their competences sharp. The trainees will not receive salary during the period (except for locally agreed social benefits) The possibilities for remuneration will of course vary depending on the possibilities in the involved countries.

In each of the involved companies a person will be appointed Trainee Executive. This person will be involved and trained to help the trainees broaden their view and giving advice schemes. This will happen across sectors to create new relationships between employers and worker and between various civil society actors and thereby strengthening cooperation between public authorities, for-profit companies and social enterprises.

All involved trainees and their contacts in each country will meet on a regular basis and in a formal structured context in order to broaden network and possibilities, and thereby give an optimal possibility for case studies. Thereby also enable transfer of knowledge between sectors.

During the project period the involved project managers and the Trainee Executives  will meet to make comparative studies of the situation in the different Member States to exchange good practices and ideas across countries – i.e. mainstreaming of existing successful practices and instruments across countries.

The involved countries will in cooperation with local and international partners conduct conferences and workshops during the project period and not at least at the end of the project participate in conferences etc. to communicate the findings both locally and internationally.
