Project description: “4th Industrial Revolution” is a 10-day Training Course aiming to increase the likelihood of employment of young people, by strengthening the competences of youth workers within the current employability trends.
The project was applied under the programme Erasmus+, KA1 – Mobility of Youth Workers to address the unemployability rates amongst young people by strengthening the competencies of youth workers who support them. This will be achieved through a training activity that will equip youth workers with the competencies in the current employability trends in the international labour market as well as soft skills that give young people a competitive advantage in the labour market.
They will also be equipped with non-formal teaching methods that can be used to pass on these skills to young people.
The training course will strengthen competencies in soft skills such as emotional intelligence, data literacy, critical thinking, and cultural sensitivity.
The objectives of the activity are:
- To raise awareness upon the most important employability trends,
- To educate youth workers on the most sought-after employability skills nowadays,
- To share experience of youth workers within employability trends and skills,
- To give youth workers tools and methods upon supporting young people to develop valuable skills for the labour market,
- To bring young people from disadvantaged groups closer to their chances of employment.
To participate, the candidates have to be at least 18 years, have a sufficient level of English skills, and must be interested in the topics of the project. They must be motivated to promote the topics amongst their local young people, but in need of acquiring methods and tools and strengthening their own understanding and knowledge in current employability trends. Furthermore, participants should fulfil the following requirements:

- have previous experience and be in a regular contact with young people.
- have the capacity to pass on the newly gained competences to young people.
- be available for the whole duration of the training course to be considered during the selection process.
