Press release: Move On Project – Launch and Kick Off meeting 19th November 2015, London

The IARS International Institute is very pleased to announce the launch of its 2 year EU funded “MOVE ON – Migration & Gender: Vocational and Educational counselling” project.

The project is a highly innovative programme aiming to share, develop and transfer effective practices, training and knowledge of professionals working with migrants.

In particular, following the project’s practical results, services of career guidance and counseling provided to EU migrants will become more responsive and tailored to their needs paying particular attention to issues impacting on gender and culture as these are usually manifested in terms of integration, employment and recruitment, at the work place, remuneration and promotion.
Through a strong, strategic partnership of 7 expert organisations from selected locations in Europe, namely Anziani e non solo (IT), beramí berufliche Integration e.V. (DE), Kentro Merimnas Oikogeneias Kai Paidiou (EL), Associazione Progetto Arcobaleno onlus (IT), Stowarzyszenie Interwencji Prawnej (PL), SURT Fundació de dones Fundació privada (ES), the project will exchange best practices that have proven to help address gender inequality and the marginalisation of EU migrants. Using a user-led methodology and through the creation of an evidence base, the project will design and implement effective strategies and high quality learning opportunities for enhancing basic skills of relevant learners in the participating organisations, countries and across Europe.

All partners attended the kick-off meeting of the project that took place on 19th November 2015 at the Canada Water Culture Space, and it was hosted by IARS International Institute who is leading on the partnership.
