A Radio for Employability Skills (ARES)
Project Number: 2022-1-IT02-KA210-ADU-000081472 – Partner
We want to introduce young adults on the job market who have theoretical and practical skills in the field of podcasting, but also transversal and managerial skills that raise their employability, changing their attitude (from passive to participation in their personal and professional growth) and their mindset. We also intend to train trainers, to multiply and expand the numerical range of young adults capable of making the leap in quality
To achieve our goals, we will train young adults, who already during the project phases will explore the local, national, and European reality in terms of opportunities, improving a series of skills and producing podcasts.
We will also create a video guide for trainers, in order to transfer methodology and tools to them. A web platform will be the IT heart of the project, of which we will take care of the dissemination and communication to reach a wider audience.
