FORWORK - Fostering Opportunities of Refugee WORKers

EaSI-Progress research project

3 April 2018

The kick off meeting of the European project FORWORK (Fostering Opportunities of Refugee WORKers) co-funded by the European Commission under the EaSI - PROGRESS program (2014-2020) was held in Rome on the 23rd of March. The project, during the three years period from 2018 to 2020, aims at promoting the social and working inclusion of asylum seekers and refugees hosted in Extraordinary Reception Centres (CASs) of the Piedmont Region and in reception facilities in Albania. In particular, Employment Centres will develop a model of taking charge of migrants through an individual integrated action plan. The project will entail the training of operators, metors and cultural mediators, as well as the provision of a range of services for final recipients ranging from the identification of formal and informal skills to language and professional training courses, from job coaching to other introduction activities to local services.
The FORWORK consortium combines a multilevel governance (national and regional) and a mixed partnership (including the public, private and third sector), thus guaranteeing the participation of a plurality of subjects with different but complementary competences. The project is coordinated by Anpal (National Agency for Active Labor Policies) - Division V, with the collaboration of Anpal Servizi, in partnership with the Piemonte Lavoro Agency, the Rodolfo Debenedetti Foundation, the ITC ILO, Inforcoop, Kairos Mestieri and, for Albania, the National Agency for Vocational Training and Adriapol. The project involves the collaboration of the Directorate of Immigration and Integration Policies of the Ministry of Labor and Social Policies, of the Ministry of the Interior - Prefecture of Turin, and of the Piedmont Region. Within the consortium, the Fondazione Rodolfo Debenedetti will be in charge of monitoring and evaluating the impact of the project in terms of the work placement of the beneficiaries, using counterfactual assessment methods.
