Project status

The project is finalised. The beneficiaries established a target group of 180 active-age persons from Crucea, Silistea and Mihail Kogalniceanu Communes in Romania and Aydemir village in Bulgaria to take part in the Professional training programme envisaged in the project. Three training centres were set up in Crucea, Silistea and Mihail Kogalniceanu communes.

The Professional training programme, including vocational training courses for At-home caregiver and personal assistant for the disabled, as well as IT and foreign language training was conducted in both Bulgaria and Romania in the period September 2017 - April 2018. As a result 120 persons obtained professional qualification certificates for “At-home caregiver” and 60 persons for “Personal Assistant for the disabled”. 161 of those also graduated the IT and foreign language courses.

4 training workshops were organised in Crucea, Silistea, Mihail Kogalniceanu and Aydemir Silistra in February, during which a survey (interviews and questionnaires) was conducted among the entire target group of the project (180 trainees), needed for the development of the Cross-border Strategy for employment of labour force and social inclusion in rural areas.
