18% of trained beneficiaries were job matched

After successfully completing our first cycle of courses (April-July 2018) we succeeded to job match 18% of our beneficiaries. Our team works intensively on the identification of beneficiaries from diverse vulnerable groups (50% refugees and migrants, 50% vulnerable Greeks) with skill-sets and talents that could be evolved further through our trainings.

We are designing and executing skill assessments that can map, both soft and hard skill information to best outline a person’s profile. These assessments help us guide people through the best training solutions that can lead each of them to more suitable and successful livelihood decisions.

Similar process is followed for the identification of companies mapping the problems they face, their existing jobs and job openings, their needs, their relationship with the local community and international markets.

Our team performs data analysis for the design of training courses that are both relevant to the market, Astrolab’s staff expertise and AstroLab’s equipment.

After the completion of a course, we work on creating routines where we can best match our trained beneficiaries with existing job openings in our collaborative companies while helping them develop soft skills that raise their communication abilities to best represent themselves to their possible employers.

 

Apart from the courses that reply to the market needs, AstroLab offers a new approach to technological tools through educational courses and workshops that aim to reinforce creativity and support experimentation that drives innovation and prepares people for the future market disruptions. We also strengthen the provision to access to the innovative technological equipment of our Lab to Greek university students, by creating common university courses for the National Technical University of Athens. Students from its Architecture engineering program are able to further train and prototype using the equipment and our expertise free of charge.
