On June 24, the Regional Employment and Training Service presented the ICARO project at the Archivo Region from Murcia.
The event was attended by more than a hundred professionals related to training for employment in order to transfer the need to train the long-term unemployed in ‘soft skills’. The national seminar was the perfect occasion to introduce the tools and resources to the local community of professionals working on career counselling, human resources but also to adult learners, the main target audience. One of the main tools presented was the online platform “From Home to Work” which facilitates the acquisition of soft-skills by the target audience. The platform, allows the learner, after registering, to find complete resources and content completely free of charge to improve their soft-skills. This includes four main themes: Digital Competence, Initiative and entrepreneurship, Social and civic competence, and Cultural Awareness.
What is next?
The SEF (Regional Employment and Training Service) is already working to introduce the “From Home to Work” online course into the personalized itineraries that are designed to improve employment options for the long-term unemployed adults in the Region of Murcia (Spain).
