The Southside Partnership Women’s Programme was invited to a study visit to Austria as part of the MILE project. MILE - Migrants Integration in the Labour market in Europe aims to develop, implement and mainstream an effective model of integrated services for the integration of Third-Country Nationals into the labour market. During the visit participants from different counties got to know organisations from the public sector and private sector in Innsbruck supporting migrants into employment. It was very interesting to hear about activities supporting migrants, in particular about migrant skills assessment, training and job guidance services and methodologies.
This project was cofounded by European Union 821725-MILE-AMIF-2017-AG-INTE. For more information please look at https://projectmile.eu/).
We were also invited to a small round-table discussion with seven representatives from the Labor Market Department of Luleå, Sweden who are conducting research as part of a ESF-project Workplace Luleå - a project which aims to connect immigrants with employers . The focus of this round-table discussion was to share learning around effective labour market interventions for migrant women. This event was organised by the Irish Refugee Council.
