Skills4Integration of Migrants, Refugees and Asylum Seekers

Project Duration: 2021 – 2023

Skills4Integration of Migrants, Refugees and Asylum Seekers is a project that addresses the integration of adult refugees, asylum seekers and migrants who have notable disadvantages in literacy, numeracy and digital skills.

Literacy, numeracy and digital skills are fundamental to master typical situations in everyday working life. Competence deficits in these areas can prove to be an obstacle to permanent and successful integration into the labour market.
This project researches the skills gap between new arrivals and their basic educational, linguistic, numeric and digital needs to reach a level of civic engagement and employability in the host country.
A Training Manual for volunteers working with refugees and migrants is being developed to support their Literacy Numeracy, digital skills and eventually their integration into the labour market. The training manual offers a teaching model to volunteer trainers, which aims to promote the social, educational and professional integration of low-skilled adult migrants and refugees in their host countries, developing their literacy, numeracy and digital skills.
These skills become necessary for the learners’ empowerment so that they can participate constructively in the social and economic life of their hosting country and improve their autonomy. The training manual will offer a comprehensive, volunteer-based tutoring model for volunteer trainers through the professional and user-friendly WebApp being developed as another result.

The material is provided in 7 languages: English, Dutch, French, Greek, Turkish,
Portuguese and Finnish.
Volunteers and professionals act as tutors to the low-skilled adult migrants/refugees for building their literacy, numeracy and digital skills.
