Adaptation of the production school model to attract youngsters into footwear careers (2015-1PT01-KA202-013084)
ERASMUS+ LEARN2WORK project aims to attract young people who are not in education or employment, and train them to be future workers of the footwear sector.
Europe’s footwear industry is constantly growing and Italy, Portugal and Spain are the three most representative countries in terms of future trends. In this industry, training is considered as a key element for its growth. That is why Europe supports it with programmes as ERASMUS+, which addresses the needs in education, training and youth.
One example of these is the LEARN2WORK project, created to solve two problems affecting both the footwear industry, which needs skilled workers for their companies, and the European society, which in most of its cities suffers from an increasing number of young people who are not in education, employment or training, i.e. the so-called ‘NEETs’.
