Research has shown that participation in mobility, the experience of living and working in another country, leads to greater employment opportunities. The Eurobarometer on mobility says that 59% of people without work who moved country found a job within 12 months. However to participate in international mobility is a greater challenge for disadvantaged young people, with less than 8% taking part.
INCAS targets disadvantaged young people, aged 18-30 years who face multiple barriers to social and economic inclusion. The benefits of international work placements can be dramatic – testimony from a KA1 beneficiary at Doncaster College UK described the experience as “life-changing”.
INCAS targets the triangle of actors – learners, teachers/trainers, and work based mentors & aims to enhance the quality of such mobility learning experiences by tailoring existing resources, methods, systems and tools to the individual needs of disadvantaged learners.
