Background

The present labour market is subject to constant changes due to technological and economic developments. In this frame, labour market needs on the one side, and professional skills attained through education on the other, need to be continuously, linked, revised and adapted.

Transition into the Labour Market is an active labour market measure launched by the Federal Employment Agency and aims to support transit from school to employment by means of promotion and use of the TVET system.

The target group of the programme are young pupils in the pre-transition classes (last years before graduation from schools) who have difficulties in achieving their graduation, could or wish not enter the high education system and are at risk of marginalisation on the labour market.

Objective
