Vocational and Occupational Training & Experience (VOTE) Project

This project was completed in June 2017. It was developed in response to the growing challenge of youth unemployment in the UK.

We addressed this by enhancing the project participants’ employability and providing them with experience and insight into the European labour market through a structured international work experience placement.

Through the project, we recruited young people who were undertaking vocational courses in Hospitality & Catering.

We offered participants active roles within placements that directly related to their course, covering topics that corresponded to mandatory units of the course.

In addition to this, we supported participants to develop their soft skills and employability, building on their self confidence, team work and communication skills.

You can read about the results of the project, from the perspective of our participants, here.
