The IGMA project is a two-year Grundtvig programme, coordinated by Folkuniversitetet, Uppsala in which organizations from 6 European countries are participating: Sweden, Netherlands, Spain, Romania, Cyprus and Greece (Dimitris ITD).
The main objective of IGMA is to increase the accessibility of unskilled immigrants in Adult Education and the labour market, by developing an innovative guidance methodology, aimed at executives working in inclusion via education and employment, and through the operation of a local network of agencies and departments which will apply this methodology in order to promote unskilled immigrants to education and labour.
The training seminar, as part of the implementation of the project, will take place at the premises of DIMITRA ITD. The local network that has already been established with employees of the Greek Manpower Organisation, the Institute of Psychosocial Development and representatives of adult education organizations and the local labor market will be participating at the seminar. The participants will be trained in the innovative coaching methodology developed in the first stage of the project and will be certified as EU Integration Agents. After the training, the pilot implementation of the methodology will take place at a regional level.
