The Project


Career Pathways

This project has emerged from work being undertaken by the project partners and in response to discussions between
the partners on how new skill needs can best be addressed.
The advancement of digital technologies, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, automation, and new forms of
work and work organization, has wide-ranging economic and societal implications now and in the future. At the same time,
the shift towards more sustainable and green economies is reshaping labour market demand and supply.

The project plans to address the need for career pathways for those seeking to develop skills for future employment and
the market for VET organizations to provide new learning opportunities for individuals to acquire these skills. It also
addresses the need identified by Cedefop for new tools for careers and employment professionals to support adults
(especially those with low skills) in identifying new skills and employment possibilities.

The objectives of the project are to:
a) Analyse present and future skills demand in different occupations;
b) Provide careers pathways to training and employment for unemployed people and those at risk of unemployment;
c) Provide data for employers, policymakers, planners, and vocational education and training providers on skills and
training demand related to national and regional markets;
d) Train career advisors in institutions and Public Employment Services in using the Career Pathway tools.

Working ROMA

featured image

The Project

Working Roma is a project funded by the European Union – JUST/2014/RDIS/AG/DISC – that has as main objective to provide new tools, based on the exchange of best practices, to prevent intolerance in the labour market towards Roma population.

Project Background

The majority of working age Roma in Central and South Europe do not have a job and many have been out of work for a considerable length of time.
The high levels of unemployment of working Roma people are most often perceived as a problem of scarce supply-side in the labour market, due to low levels of education and professional qualification of Roma. However, there is another dimension, less spoken and recognised, that is discrimination.
Discrimination significantly aggravates the situation and causes systemic exclusion from employment for a large number of Roma.

Project Guidelines

The project is developed under the assumption that labour market insertion must be a priority to promote the full social inclusion of Roma people. Based on this, the project has adopted the following main guidelines:

  • To combat and to prevent racism and xenophobia in the workplace.
  • To promote access to vocational training of Roma and other minorities at risk of social exclusion.
  • To improve understanding of the cultural and social context of the Roma community and other vulnerable groups

Nine partners from nine countries…

Working Roma is implemented by a consortium of 9 partners from 9 EU countries, spanning from North to South of Europe – Spain (project coordinator), Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, Malta, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia and United Kingdom.

Partners :

  • Coordinator: Andujar Municipality (Spain)
