Skills for social inclusion

30 March 2020,   to   3 April 2020
Turin, Italy

Given the heterogeneity of disadvantaged groups, such as women, youth, persons with disabilities, workers in rural areas or in the informal economy, migrants or refugees, education and training systems and programmes need to:

• overcome the range of existing barriers through carefully designed policy intervention;

• respond flexibly to different needs, and;

• address questions of status and challenge social perceptions.

Moreover, targeted initiatives to address challenges faced by particular groups should complement efforts to build inclusive TVET systems. Active labour market programmes (ALMPs) that offer a package of support services including remedial education, core skills, vocational and job readiness training, work experience, awareness of labour rights and occupational safety and health, job-search assistance, career guidance and counselling are more likely to enhance employability and facilitate transitions to decent work.

This ITC/ILO course aims to focus attention many of the aforementioned themes.

The effects of digitalisation on the quality of working life

26 November 2019,   to   26 November 2019
Helsinki, Finland

The event will bring together experts, policy makers, Eurofound Management Board Members and members of the Network of Eurofound Correspondents, as well as national level social partners. The aim is to discuss the effects of digitalisation on the quality of working life and to identify policies supporting quality in work in the digital age. The seminar will bring together up to 40 participants from Denmark, Estonia, Finland and Sweden. Since the onset of digitalisation, many workers are experiencing greater flexibility in work. However, a digital work environment also brings challenges such as the blurring of boundaries between work and personal time as well as higher levels of work intensity. Policy attention is shifting towards the challenges relating to changing practices in work organisation, the increase of digitalisation and the rise of new forms of employment and the effects on quality of work.
