Blueprint for Sectoral Cooperation on Skills in Work Integration Social Enterprises
EU-project, Erasmus+, period: 01/2021 - 12/2024
Work Integration Social Enterprises (WISEs) target different disadvantaged groups of people with a distance to the labour market. Skills shortages and mismatches currently affect WISE’s in several dimensions, especially regarding digital skills. In this context, there is a clear need to develop a comprehensive European strategy to tackle the skills gaps in the WISEs sector, covering the skills needs of disadvantaged workers, their supporters (e.g. job coaches) and of those who can enable an adequate working environment (e.g. managers).
The aim of the B-WISE project is to develop and implement a new strategic approach (Blueprint) to sectoral cooperation on skills needed to reinforce the empowering work of WISEs and to sustainably tackle the digital gap and challenges they face. We plan to achieve it by building a European sustainable alliance which pursues the following specific objectives:
The project, led by two key European networks representing WISEs and involvement of 28 partners from 13 EU countries, will implement a coherent and comprehensive set of interconnected outputs which are flexible and adaptable to different current and future contexts and developments across Europe, ensuring then a local uptake with a clear European ambition.
