In 2011 five partners started the Igma project for developing a methodology for the integration of immigrants into the labor market through effective cooperation of regional stakeholder networks. In Igma2 the curriculum for the training of regional networks was developed.
In Igma3 the methodology was further developed and integrated into policy levels in the partner countries through:
- Adapting the methodology to the needs of young adults and resources of the stakeholder networks;
- Enriching the methodology with job placement strategies and know-how for changing the attitudes of the employers;
- Developing a distance training course for stakeholder networks in Moodle;
- Professionalizing the adult education staff working with career counseling and job placement of young adults.
The introduction of the Igma3 methodology in regional stakeholder networks contributed to better opportunities for job placements for young adults. Moreover – as confirmed by the external evaluation of the project -the harmonized efforts of stakeholder networks resulted in transparency and efficiency on the system level.
