Future-Proof Your Career (FYC)

Future-Proof Your Career (FYC) is a European project (Erasmus+ KA2) whose mission is to support unemployed people in vulnerable situations to gain knowledge and awareness of their key competencies.

This project is part of the company’s internationalization strategy Tomillo Foundation‘s internationalization strategy.

The objective of the project is to design, develop and implement a Future Employment Framework that identifies cross-cutting skills and abilities that can be used to secure the professional future of socially disadvantaged unemployed people.

The FYC project, developed between 2019 and 2022, is complex and ambitious, and is built on 5 intellectual outputs, generated by 7 partners located in 6 countries: Ireland(Ballymun Job Centre and Headway), Spain(Tomillo Foundation), Italy(CIOFS-FP), Austria(Hafelekar), Germany(MetropolisNet), and Romania(Universitatea Politehnica din Bucuresti).

FYC intends to provide support to employment counselors and similar professional figures, promoting a change of culture by which on-line tools will be used to reinforce the quality of guidance and the best accompaniment to the unemployed. To this end, as part of the results of the project, an on-line tool has been developed and tested to identify the competencies that users have acquired throughout their lives by answering questions related to day-to-day activities. In addition, a training module has been developed with the aim of helping guidance professionals to prepare and optimize the guidance process as well as to learn how to use the tool.
