The European labour market is undergoing a period of rapid change. We are facing huge challenges as the job market is becoming more fluid and technology is developing at an astounding pace with no sign of slowing down. This particularly affects those who are disadvantaged and therefore at greater risk of exclusion. Due to the current transitory nature of the job market, the ability to cope with change is an essential skill that workers need to develop in order to enter into it successfully and to fully participate in society.
But how can we reach disadvantaged members of society in particular and how can lifelong guidance – in the sense of sustainable support aimed at working life as a whole from an early stage – help people to deal positively with transitions in the job market?
These and more questions were tackled in the conference of this year.
