About the project
Given demographic changes, skill mismatches, rigid regulations, gender gaps and persistence of certain socio-cultural norms, the Euro-Mediterranean region faces high unemployment rates of youth, mainly NEETs, and women are underrepresented in the labour market. The growing proliferation of sustainable and eco-responsible innovations in the agri-food and waste management sectors requires new occupational profiles. To achieve this goal, MYSEA aims, from one side, to identify existing and emerging skills and professional needs through oriented training, coaching and mentoring, and from the other side, to involve Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions and enterprises encouraging sector-skills alliances through apprenticeship, traineeship and on-the-job training. The project will result in opportunities for young women and NEETs to apply the soft and hard skills learned during the training period and offer a platform to exchange experiences and implement national employment schemes in favour of youth employment.
