To support the vocational integration of groups of individuals with difficulties in entering the labour market
The “IdA – Integration through Exchange” programme fosters transnational mobility and exchange projects with the support of European Social Fund (ESF), supporting the vocational integration of groups of individuals with difficulties in entering the labour market by means of practical occupational experience in other EU countries. Support is only provided to project networks that work together with at least one transnational partner from at least one EU member state. The involvement of the local bodies responsible for basic income support is of central importance. Each project cooperates with the local and regional employment agencies, the job centres, joint agencies or optional communities in order to find tailored solutions for each individual jobseeker. IdA is targeted in particular at the following groups of persons who have difficulties in gaining access to the job and training market: disadvantaged young people, unemployed young adults and young lone mothers as well as persons with disabilities. The project is composed by two initiatives: the first call that is IdA I aimed to increasing the employment opportunities of disadvantaged young persons and unemployed young adults through promoting transnational exchange and mobility projects and the second call named IdA II to enhance employment opportunities for people with disabilities by supporting transnational mobility projects and exchanges of experts. The programme lasts from October 2008 to 2015.
