The European Projects Office of the City Council of Altea, EuroAltea, presents a new Erasmus+ mobility called Soft Skills led by the Italian association IncoMolfetta. This new project will give the opportunity to six young people from Altea, Julita Prominska, Katerin Toaquiza, Daniel Camargo, Alba Zaragoza, Víctor Martínez and Nazari Sellés Estévez. The participants are both university and vocational training students.
This project is part of the Erasmus+ programme, and will take place from 14 to 21 July. The young people will learn new personal and professional development skills. According to the Stanford Research Institute International, 75% of long-term success at work depends mainly on soft skills, and only 25% on hard skills. Therefore, the mobility aims to enhance the soft skills of young people in order to boost their future careers.
The main idea of the project is to increase the employability of young people by exploring and developing skills for a successful job search. During the youth exchange, each day will focus on a certain topic and corresponding methods, e.g. debate, discussion, conflict management, public speaking, presentation, emotional intelligence, personal development, entrepreneurship.
The mobility aims to enable participants to explore new topics for their vocational training, setting examples of good practice through brainstorming, teamwork, role-playing, podcasts, workshops, study visits and applying the acquired knowledge in their future professional life.
