Improving the employability of youth in the territory

This study aims to redefine intervention proposals for the promotion of youth employment from different levels; firstly, by adapting training offers to the most emerging sectors that generate employment in each territory, as well as exploring training experiences beyond formal ones. Secondly, with the aim of making the offer of occupational training more attractive by incorporating competences linked to young people’s everyday concerns and practices, as well as encouraging the business sector at a territorial level to incorporate the training competences that these young people have. Finally,  by introducing the gender perspective in the male key, as the changes in the employment model in the context of crisis have affected mainly young men.
