Way Forward – supporting Refugees’ Careers

As collective outcome of the ReVoT partnership, we published a booklet that reviews existing vocational training practices in line with refugees’ job integration in the partners’ countries.
The identified good practices were selected by the partnership since they are transferable under institutional and social preconditions, although they reflect specific, context related, strategies.
This final outcome reflects the research findings of the two years deliberations, study visits and desk research of the RevoT partners.
The booklet offers descriptions of relevant VET integration domains which are illustrated by good practice and innovative examples from the countries involved in reference to the relevant national legislative boundaries and context of integration as a whole.

MAV Guide for Trainers

How to motivate adults interested in volunteering to work for and with migrants? How do you motivate migrants and refugees to attend a training program for a longer period of time?

The MAV Guide for Trainers introduces the methodology and approach of MAV. For the development of the guideline experts were interviewed in all project countries. They all have been working for a long time in the areas of volunteering and integration of immigrants. In addition, successful examples of good practice from the areas of volunteering and integration were collected in all partner countries. These successful examples can be transferred to other countries and are presented in the appendix of the MAV Guide.
