What we offer:
During our workshops, you work together with an employer and other refugees on your professional skills. Options include taking a LinkedIn workshop, job application training or building a website. This is an accessible way for employers to get to know you and to see whether you might fit with the organization.
This is all about a personal meeting with one or more employers. We meet with a small group (around five to ten people) or organize a large event (with about a hundred people). Our meet-and-greets are informal and practical: they are all about doing something together. So we break a business case with financial service providers, we bake bread with bakers and we drill and tinker with a technical installation company.
In a crash course of several weeks or months, you will learn useful skills such as programming or dealing with popular control programs. These "classes" increase your job prospects and help participating employers to recruit interesting candidates.
Internal training programs
During this program you receive short, internal training from an employer that suits you well. After successfully completing this training, you immediately start working for the employer (a paid job).
If you participate in a mentor program, it means that we connect you with a mentor, an employee of one of our partner organizations. During the period of your mentor program, you work together towards a concrete, work-related goal and you exchange knowledge, network and experiences.
