This is an online handbook for you who work with adult job-seeking immigrants, design activities for them, or are otherwise interested in their employability.
For this handbook, we have chosen the best practices from our organisations and projects in Finland, Sweden, and Belgium. The practices can be used to support skills recognition and validation, to empower individuals and enhance their employability, and for the immigrants’ introduction to work in the workplace.
The handbook comprises the best practices alongside recommendations for a smoother path towards the employment. It also includes the description of the mutual transnational learning process throughout project. The practices have been used, evaluated and developed further in the ESF-funded project Empowering Migrants for Employment (EME).They are described and evaluated in a clear way and can be used in any organisation.
