IGMA3. Coordination of services of information, guidance and job placement for young people

IGMA3sem2DOCUMENTA, Instituto Europeo de Estudios para la Formación y el Desarrollo is currently working on an Erasmus+ project funded by the EU. The main aim of IGMA 3 is to improve the efficiency of labour market integration processes for young adults (18-30) who are at risk of social exclusion.

As part of the project´s activities, DOCUMENTA has held a workshop to make an assessment about the current situation of available services for job placement among young people in Cantabria as well as to gather all the concerns of the professionals who work in the fields of guidance and job counselling in order to determine the needs and the most appropriate training for the professional development of practitioners.    

The conference took place on Friday 1st July at the Fundación Caja Cantabria facilities located in Santander. We were accompanied by a wide group of leaders from different entities that deal with job placement for young people, namely: Cáritas, Servicio de Inclusión Social del Ayuntamiento de Santander, Observatorio del SEPE, AMICA, ADL de Los Corrales de Buelna and Cruz Roja Cantabria. Al these organizations took part in the discussion and contributed to make the conference productive.

Their contributions form part of the IGMA 3 project and we hope to keep the bonds initiated in the project.


Focus group on SEE-ME project for Early Warning detection of risk for Early School Leaving

Archivo 006.jpegDOCUMENTA shared with teachers and staff of Decroly Santander a dissemination session of SEE-ME project for Early Warning detection of risk for Early School Leaving (ESL). Teachers have been informed on the foundations of the SEE-ME project and the proposed framework for an effective approach to this issue from the school.

Main topics of discussion were the real impact of certain factors (environmental and demographic, key competences and school adaptability, sense of belonging or the learning environment oriented to work life, among others) and the different perceptions of school drop-out from the point of view of students, parents and teachers.

The main conclusions of the focus group showed that there may be some difficulties in implementing the model in a practical way for some VET organisations, despite the fact that all participants agreed on the factors presented and the need of preventing early school leaving.  


Dissemination seminars: Early School Leavers!

SEE-ME: innovative and practical methodology to work with Early School Leavers


SEE-ME project aims to address the lack of an early warning system or methodological tool that makes the school to pay attention to a student at risk as early as possible and take proper actions to prevent Early School Leavers. School is one of the influences that can provide an early attention for the pattern of risk factors that play a role in a particular moment or period in a student’s life.
