The first meeting of EU project Recruit potential took place

Daugavpils City Council in cooperation with Skelleftea municipality in Sweden (lead partner) implements project Recruit potential (“Recruit potential – VET measures for Inclusive Employers”) financed by EU program “ERASMUS+”. The project involves 5 partners from 5 different countries – Sweden, Portugal, United Kingdom, Netherlands and Latvia. The goal of the project is to implement measures for inclusive labour market by performing analyses of supply and demand of workforce and by creating a Classroom Course Curriculum. The Recruit potential project will address the challenge that the future labour market demand for specific skills in certain professions, will, in many cases, be higher than the supply.

The project is performed by three local public authorities (Daugavpils, Lousada and Skelleftea), as well as two companies that will help to develop a training course based on the information obtained during the implementation of the project and overall experience of the partners. Training course will be developed for Human Relations staff and management. It will be translated in all languages of the project partner countries and will be available on its webpage.

From 21st till 23rd of November the first meeting was held within the framework of the present project in Lousada, Portugal, where Daugavpils City Council participated as well.  During the international meeting, project’s aims, objectives and expected results, as well as future activities were discussed. Canice Consulting Limited presented ideas what the training course would look like. Participants of the meeting had an opportunity to visit institutions for people with disabilities - Casa da Boavista, ACIP and Cercimarante. There were discussions on the best practices performed by Lousada municipality towards inclusion of people with disabilities in labour market. 

Next project meeting will be organised in April, 2018 in Daugavpils. Project is financed by European Union programm “ERASMUS+”. Term of implementation: 01.10.2017. - 30.09.2019.
