The REC Policy Recommendations
This document contains a list of 10 Policy Recommendations, developed by the Programma integra and validated by the whole partnership at transnational level through specific focus groups involving stakeholders from Italy, Spain, Germany, Greece, Belgium and France, and declined for 3 different target groups:
❖ decision makers
❖ sector practitioners (trainers, guidance experts, intercultural mediators, counsellors, etc.)
❖ general public
Policy recommendations intend to enable competent national or regional authorities to align their systems with a EU-validated model (the REC model) focused on a specific target and based on EU standards (ESCO – EQAVET).
The choice of including also general public as target of the Policy recommendations is intended to widen the knowledge of citizens about the important role played by the EU system of recognition of competencies and skills (especially transversal/non-formal) for a better integration in the labour market, in particular for disadvantaged categories (such as long term unemployed or migrants/ refugees).
