Youth Policy Watch - Youth Employment
As YEU has been working a lot and pushing for recognition of competences and skills gained through Non Formal Education, there are various examples of activities that combined these actions to Youth employment. Based on this work we are developing, there are some interesting discussions and initiatives being promoted in European level that we should be aware. One of this initiatives is the adaption of a "Communication " by the European Commission, on the 4th of October 2016, which highlights the main achievements of the Youth Guarantee and Youth Employment Initiative (YEI) since 2013, when they were launched. The EC draws lessons on how to improve the EU and national efforts on deploying national Youth Guarantee schemes. Last year, this Commission took measures to accelerate the implementation of the Youth Guarantee by increasing the pre-financing of the YEI to facilitate the performance of the youth in the labour market. It is very interesting to see how this affects our work as Civil Society, but also how can we assist in the general aspect of Youth employment.
