The European project DB WAVE, the first Erasmus+ KA3 project that brings together 7 European Salesian VET networks with the common goal of increasing the employability and social inclusion of young people through vocational training, has among its specific objectives the creation and development in a cooperative way of tools aimed at providing quality resources to facilitate the transition of VET students in Europe into the labour market.
One of these quality resources that the partnership of the DB WAVE project has developed is a handbook including operational guidelines to create or to update a Job Services Office (JSO) in one’s own reality. Many Salesian VET centres in Europe had already developed this kind of internal employment centre which deals with managing all the services related to job placement and which directly connects the VET centre to the labour market with the general aim of employing Salesian students.
These guidelines have the purpose to collect and map the services that the VET Centers of the Salesian world can offer to their students and to share the physical and digital tools that are used daily by JSO operators.
The guidelines consist in two parts:
a. The Guidelines, describing history and providing a general overview of the current situation of European JSOs.
b. The Toolkit, consisting in a collection of tools developed or used by the Salesian VET Centers in Europe.
