The TSEMY – Training for sustainable employment of youth and young adults is funded by the European Commission, through funds granted by the National Erasmus + Agency Education and Training Key Action 2 (KA2) – Cooperation for innovation and interchange of good practices (Strategic Partnerships for Vocational Education and Training) with reference number 2020-1-PT01-KA202-78621.

The phenomenon of unemployment among young people has emerged in the European Union, with different incidence in several member states. But in general, the unemployment rate in the population aged 20 to 29 years is higher than the unemployment rate in the total population.

According to Eurostat, the unemployed population between 20 and 29 years old with post-secondary education represented more than twice the average of the EU, with a relevant group in this field related to young people with higher education.

One of the reasons that has been pointed out for this gap between the training and the needs of employers, so this project aims to contribute to a reduction of youth unemployment through specially developed training, corresponding to the needs of companies at a global level.

Given that the issue of youth unemployment is transversal in the EU member states, this project assumes a different answer to the existing problem of unemployment.

This new methodology leads to the production of training content that meets the needs of employers and integrates a training in the business market and mentoring through a digital platform for monitoring the trainees. It is a tailor-made training accompanied by a motivational strategy for trainees and employers that will lead to sustainable action that can be replicated in other work contexts and other member states.

The general objective of the project is to contribute to the reduction of unemployment in the population aged 20-29, unemployed and with tertiary training.
