Project VOORwerk into Full Swing
10 October 2016 - In the VOORwerk project, COA, IOM and UAF work together to better prepare permit holders in COA reception centres for their entry in the labour market. In May the project kicked off at 10 COA pilot locations. The project provides trainings aimed at improving soft skills required to succeed in the Dutch labour market. Additionally, the project offers individual coaching for permit holders and helps them to acquire (voluntary) work placements. The first 250 permit holders have by now successfully completed the training.
The first few months of the project were a trial period for all involved to introduce final adjustments. On October 24, staff from participating COA locations will meet to discuss best practices and obstacles. For an update please see the next press release.

VOORwerk is funded by the EU’s Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF).
