TCA Guidance to the labour market

Welcome

The Dutch National Agency Erasmus+ is very pleased to welcome you to the Adult Education TCA ‘Guidance to the labour market’ from Sunday, 6 October until Tuesday, 8 October 2019 at the Golden Tulip Hotel Central in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands. 

On this website you will find information on the goals, themes and results of this international seminar. Furthermore, you will find the program, the content of the sessions and practical information. This website will be regularly updated with new information before and during the TCA.

The official language of the TCA is English.

Theme

In order to contribute to the realization of a better guidance to the labour market for (young) adults, we have chosen ‘Guidance to the labour market’ as our main theme. During this seminar, we will focus on guidance of adults from disadvantaged backgrounds to the labour market, with a specific focus on three subgroups: 

  • Young Adults Not in Education, Employment and Training (NEETs)
  • Adults with a mild intellectual disability
  • Adults lacking basic skills

Goals

The main goal of this TCA is to stimulate a further deepening of our central theme and stimulate cooperation between European organizations working on labour market guidance. After the seminar, participants will be aware of the possibilities to collaborate on an international level on this theme and they will have broadened their European network. The NA Erasmus+ is therefore organizing this seminar especially for organizations that are committed to guiding adults with disadvantaged backgrounds to the labour market. 

Profile of participants

Participants consist of organisations who participate in the Erasmus+ program, as well as existing beneficiaries working on this theme, such as municipalities, local or regional integration service providers and/or public employment services. 

Forty participants from EU countries and twenty Dutch participants are expected to join the TCA. There is a maximum number of four participants per European country (except for the number of Dutch participants). Knowledge of and experience with the Erasmus+ program is not necessary. NA staff is welcome to join, too!
