Working together for a green, competitive and inclusive Europe

IPS4NEETs training in Budapest


After the three-day training session in Norway, the third national training of IPS4NEETs project was held in Hungary. Between 3-6 June 2019 eight trainers from Norway trained Hungarian youth advisers and counsellors working with NEET youth. The aim of the training was to familiarize the participants with the Norwegian IPS method in order to empower them in their daily work and to strengthen their advisory competences. Thanks to the IPS4NEETs project funded by the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Youth Employment, this innovative methodology has been introduced in Hungary as well. As a long-term impact of the project, the method will be used by the counsellors at Hungarian NGOs and government agencies. On the closing day of the four-day event, participants and their Norwegian trainers had a field visit at the KONKÁV Community Space in Budapest. The professional leader of KONKÁV, Dániel Varga, presented the opportunities provided by the community space, the activities and actions to be implemented, and provided an overview of the social situation of the district and the narrow environment of the institution. After the introduction, in the frame of interactive small group sessions, two case studies were processed by the participants. The topic was the labour market situation of local youth. The training of the Hungarian counsellors will continue in October, when partners from Spain will present the Educational Youth Technology Platform (EYTP) in a two-day training session. The platform will be an important source and tool for the advisory work, as it will provide an innovative and comprehensive way of assisting NEET youth.
