Qualify your future – Public conference

Thursday the 5th of November 2015, 1pm to 5:30pm, SFIVET building, via Besso 84, Lugano (Switzerland).

Studies carried out in Switzerland and all over Europe, have shown that risks of unemployment and marginalization from the labour market are correlated with a lack of qualification. In particular, young adults who prematurely interrupt their training cycles, face serious difficulties to integrate themselves in a stable manner in the labour market.

How to develop flexible and personalised training, able to facilitate the acquirement of a proper professional qualification, dedicated to people who risk to be left out from the labour market? How to aid them to approach a professional training opportunity?

What measures should be adopted in order to recuperate the basic competences needed for professional training?

These are a few questions, which the Second Chance European Project tried to answer.

In addition to presenting the main outcomes of the project – in particular the Second chance training model -, the conference’s intention is to give a projection of the current situation concerning the qualification of adults in Switzerland and compare experiences with the other partner countries (i.e. Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Poland).
