Increasing Impact in International Work Placements
Research has shown that participation in mobility, the experience of living and working in another country, leads to greater employment opportunities. The Eurobarometer on mobility says that 59% of people without work who moved country found a job within 12 months. However to participate in international mobility is a greater challenge for disadvantaged young people, with less than 8% taking part.
INCAS targets disadvantaged young people, aged 18-30 years who face multiple barriers to social and economic inclusion. The benefits of international work placements can be dramatic – testimony from a KA1 beneficiary at Doncaster College UK described the experience as “life-changing”.
INCAS targets the triangle of actors – learners, teachers/trainers, and work based mentors & aims to enhance the quality of such mobility learning experiences by tailoring existing resources, methods, systems and tools to the individual needs of disadvantaged learners.
