La mobilité des apprentis en région Bretagne

http://www.2e2f.fr/images/agence_erasmus/footer_logo_agence.pngPatrice Duclos, responsable du service Projets éducatifs citoyens et mobilité des jeunes au conseil régional de Bretagne, nous explique pourquoi la Bretagne investit dans la mobilité des jeunes apprenants et des apprentis en particulier.
900 d'entre eux sont concernés et effectuent une mobilité d'apprentissage, individuelle ou collective. La région les incite à ces mobilités pour l'acquisition de compétences et invite les CFA bretons à se saisir de cette opportunité dans le cadre d'une démarche qualité.
La région Bretagne participe actuellement à une étude d'impact de la mobilité internationale des apprentis réalisée par le Cereq à la demande de l'agence Europe-Education-Formation France. Les régions sont en effet trés investies dans le financement des mobilités et souhaitent mesurer leur impact sur l'acquisition de compétences et l'employabilité.

Youth (un)employment in Europe: Facts & Actions

Youth (un)employment in Europe: Facts & Actions - page 2

Young people hold the key to Europe‘s future dynamism and prosperity. Their talents, energy and creativity will help Europe to grow and become more competitive as we move beyond the economic and fi nancial crisis. Yet young people have been hit particularly hard by the crisis. At present, nearly 6 million people in Europe under the age of 25 are unemployed and a total of 7.5 million are not in employment, education or training. Youth unemployment rates in Europe stood at 23.5% in the fi rst quarter of 2013, more than twice the - already very high - rate for the population at large. In some countries, more than half of the young people who want to work are unemployed.
The Commission has proposed a number of practical and achievable measures that have the potential to make an immediate impact, most recently in the December 2012 Youth Employment Package and the March 2013 proposals for the EUR 6 billion Youth Employment Initiative. Some of these proposals have been agreed at EU level and must now be translated urgently into opportunities for young people. Others are yet to be agreed at EU level, in particular those linked to the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for 2014-2020.
The Commission report on youth unemployment sets out steps to be taken without delay to get young people back into work, education or training. These steps cover:
» the implementation of the Youth Guarantee;
» investment in young people through the European Social Fund; » the front-loading of the Youth Employment Initiative;
» support for intra-EU labour mobility with EURES;
» steps to ease the transition from education to work by boosting the supply of high quality apprenticeships and traineeships and addressing skills shortages;
» an acceleration of reforms to deliver a genuine EU labour market in the longer run; and
» measures to support job creation in the immediate term, especially by SMEs, and to incentivise the hiring of young people.
In many of these areas, the groundwork has been done. The priority now is to accelerate and front-load implementation. Success will depend both on the political will of the Member States and the capacity of the private sector to create opportunities for young people. The EU cannot substitute for the work that is required at national level. But it can help to make things happen, by pinpointing the most critical reforms through the Country-Specifi c Recommendations, disseminating best practice, channelling investment from the EU budget, and helping young people to take full advantage of the European single market.

Southern Europe: youth unemployment, educational systems and migration: What Europass can do

Southern Europe: youth unemployment, educational systems and migration: What Europass can do - pages 3-4

By Europass Coordination Team. The current dramatic macro-economic statistics in Southern Europe are well-known. In Spain, Italy, Greece and Portugal, economies are in recession, GDP per capita fall under the EU average, public debt explode in spite of radical budgetary cuts, inequalities are growing. In Greece, Spain and Portugal, the worst data are without doubt the unemployment rates, which reached respectively 27%, 26.8% and 17.8% in April 2013 and rise to 62.5%, 56.4% and 42.5% amongst youth. In Italy, youth unemployment is not much better: 40.2% (12% for the whole active population).
These Southern European cases challenge the whole Europe 2020 strategy, based on the principle that a knowledge economy must be the pillar of sustainable and inclusive growth. Does the situation in Southern European countries mean that the EU policy is failing? In fact, the current crisis is giving us a major lesson: countries which have maintained an innovative industry, like Germany, are more crisis-resistant than those based on low-added value services and construction, like Spain, Portugal or Greece.
Low added-value economies suff er more the eff ects of the crisis than high added-value ones. Very often, political discourses focus on the weaknesses of education and training systems to explain unemployment and innovation issues. This vision is too partial. Spain, Portugal, Greece and, to a lesser extent, Italy, show an almost complete mismatch between the evolution of the education and training system and the trends followed by the national economy. According to UNESCO, the gross enrolment rates in higher education (ISCED 5 and 6) in those countries have grown by more than 50% since 1998 – except in Italy, with an increase of „just“ 38%. In Spain, the increase is even more impressive: 88% (from 54% in 1998 to 83% in 2011)!
Amongst these higher education students, Eurostat shows that those enrolled in „science, mathematics, computing, engineering, manufacturing and construction“ represented percentages above the EU average, being in Greece even higher than the German fi gure (32.6% versus 32.1%). But, despite the Southern European eff orts to increase the educational levels of the population, the unemployment rates for highly educated young people (15 - 29 years old) remain as high as 35.6% in Greece, 26.2% in Spain, and 18% and 17.2% in Portugal and Italy in 2011. For scientifi c and engineering graduates, the situation was sometimes even worse: 36.4% in Greece and 29.1% in Spain. These data show that the issue in Greece and Spain, and to a lesser extent in Portugal and Italy, is not at the level of the education and training systems, which have clearly moved towards increasing the human capital needed in a knowledge-based economy. The real problem has been the economic structures of the countries, unable to adapt to the new needs of a competitive economy.
The long-term consequences of this mismatch can be dramatic. Not providing an opportunity to young graduates, especially in scientifi c fi elds, means that the quality of the knowledge base will quickly become obsolete. This will be an enormous loss for the society and public fi nances, where investments on education and training will not produce returns.
Unsurprisingly, migration appears as one of the solutions for the young generation. In Spain, for instance, according to a recent survey of the Real Instituto Elcano, 80% of young university graduates are ready to migrate, especially to other European countries. Indeed, 63.1% of them said that they had learnt foreign languages to anticipate such possibility. The number of new migrants is already estimated at more than 300,000. The experience with developing and transition countries shows that migration is more effi cient if it creates a win-win-win situation. Migration should be positive for the migrant, who can develop his/ her skills and competences and increase his/ her well-being. It should be positive for the receiving country, because it can fi ght its skills shortages and mismatches. It should be also positive for the sending country, thanks to remittances and the return of certain number of skilled and experienced migrants. In reality, however, this rarely happens, and migration is often characterised by „brain waste“ rather than by „brain drain“.
Nevertheless, Europe is particularly well equipped to exploit the potential of internal migration and produce a win-winwin situation. The European Union has developed recognition, transparency and validation tools to facilitate mobility. One of them is Europass, a simple and user-friendly instrument that allows a clear statement of qualifi cations, competences and skills. Europass combines a standardised format with a fl exible content to allow users to adapt to the needs of their potential employers, including putting emphasis on the increasingly relevant transversal skills such as communication, entrepreneurship or digital competences. Future developments of Europass will need to take into account the trends of migration within Europe and the related skills that the labour market request more and more.

Getting ready to apply for your fi rst job with Europass!

By Alexandra Enzi | NEC Austria. The Austrian NEC has been off ering workshops on how to get ready to apply for your fi rst job for 15 – 18-year-olds at schools and youth centres for the last two years. The workshops consist of an introduction to the Europass documents focusing on the Europass CV and how best to document your skills and qualifi cations, eff ectively and clearly. For learners in vocational schools, the Certifi cate Supplement is also presented as a valuable tool to make sure that future employers are aware of the specifi c skills and competencies of the young school leavers. This is followed by getting the young people actively involved in a role play simulating realistically diff erent job interview situations. In selected sessions, this part of the workshop is held in English featuring a native speaker of English – thus combining valuable information on what to be aware of in job interviews with language training at the same time.
The trainings have been such a big success with the students, teachers and counsellors involved that NEC Austria is planning to produce short video clips in 2014 featuring best parts of the training, and make them available to be used by teachers and trainers throughout the country.

Know more, be better! Europass and the week of real-life learning in Romania - page 7

By Angelica Radu | NEC Romania. The National Europass Centre Romania has participated in an exciting action called “Know more, be better”, a programme dedicated to non-formal learning. The main concept of the programme consists in organising a week when school pupils and students do not participate in their regular classes but instead are engaged, alongside their teachers, in diff erent kinds of practical learning experiences such as visiting TV broadcasting sites and experiencing a few hours with real-life reporters; exploring fi re departments and getting to know what it really means to work as a fi refi ghter; visiting theater back-stages and learning what it is like to be an actor, etc. In 2013, the week dedicated to non-formal learning took place between 1st and 5th April. It was a very good opportunity for the Europass promoters to organize information events and acquaint with the Europass instruments an interesting mix of participants including students in their senior years of high-school as well as teaching staff . During their week of practical learning, the participants were given a chance to learn how to fi ll their own Europass CV and Europass Language Passport (ELP) using the dedicated online tools. Approximately 260 participants fi lled their Europass CVs with the support of experts who helped the future graduates discover some of their key competences to be communicated when looking for a fi rst job after school. Generally, the participants found the Europass CV very useful for their purposes. The high-school graduates-to-be intended to use it for applying for further studies abroad as well as for getting a job. The teachers decided to use the tool more in their class activities. The ELP was also appreciated as a useful tool, especially due to the support it provides in assessing one’s language competences by using the Self Assessment Grid.
