MyPath Career planning - inclusion of well and/or higher qualified migrant women.

The Erasmus+ co-funded project MyPath has started its journey on 01.11.2021 and will last till 31.10.2023. The Project Coordinator is QBS Gewerkstatt gGmbH, Germany.

MyPath focuses on capacity building and empowerment of skilled migrant and ethnic minority women in the VET sector. Our project aims to diminish the skill shortage of qualified migrant and ethnic minority women in the VET sector without re-skillings and large investments, boost their employability chances and employment rate in their fields of expertise, ensure their sustainable income and socio-cultural and economic integration into hosting countries.

We are excited to share with you the latest updates on our project "Career Planning: Inclusion of Well and/or Higher Qualified Migrant/Minority Women into Labor Market."

Mentoring Sessions

To facilitate the entry into labour market for qualified women with migration and/or ethnic minority background we are planning to offer them mentoring sessions which will begin already in January. The Mentors will consult and support the target group through a personal and distinct approach, combining hand-on examples and story-telling. These will enable communication among the migrant and ethnic minority women among themselves as well as with mentors and locals, exchange of ideas and experience, and/or perhaps partnerships, networking and employment opportunities.

#MyPath Training Activities

We are happy to announce that our tailor made Training Kit for Trainers is now ready and waiting for testing. The Kit is topped with subject-relevant insights, latest innovative trends and interactive learning-teaching methods. From 09.01.2023-13.01.2022, the trainers from the participating institutions will participate in Learning/Teaching/Training to get acquainted but also the quality and relevance of the developed material and models. The event will empower and sensitize the participants regarding the support, strategies and insight that migrant women may need for the entry to the labour market.
