About the project
Do our students know what they need to do to fulfil their future job expectations? They make and will make important decisions that will shape their future. Maybe that when they finish their vocational and technical undergraduate courses at our schools, they are not aware of possible future labour contexts abroad.
While the world of work has undergone major changes in the last few decades, jobs expectations of youths have changed little. Only few of them include in their job expectations the possibility to work in a country different from theirs.
With the labour market undergoing rapid, essential change –decisions-making for our students are more important, but also more difficult.
This project will help our students have the opportunity to share their jobs dreams and expectations and will be aware of working abroad can also be a key point in their future careers.
Some of the aims of this project are:

1)To motivate students to better understand some possible future job profiles in their own countries and abroad
2)To actively know how to apply for different jobs in the European Union and beyond
3)To fortify the importance of marketable skills.
4)To access to trustworthy labour market information and advice/guidance from well-trained and impartial resources.
5)To foster curiosity, creativity, love for learning and to open their minds to different ways of living, thinking, and working
6)To connects classroom learning with future labour contexts and professional lives
7)To boost students’ understanding of jobs and careers abroad.

Driving questions
Tone: Open-minded, curious, meaningful for students.
The project aims are oriented towards building marketable skills and competences
eTwinner-centred project
Students become not only jobseekers and perfect candidates but also employers who give feedback to students' application forms.
Would you like to work abroad, in Europe?

Would you know how to apply for a job in Europe?
Teachers encourage students to ask themselves questions about their future job.
They are asked to consider what they want to know about the labour market where they will incorporate as soon as they finish their vocational courses.
eTwinners then research their questions and search information on pages selected by them and teachers. Promoting etwinners' autonomy, teachers facilitate etwinners to find and manage information that help them to know how their future job profile is and what requirements, duties and tasks they will develope in their future jobs. eTwinners will solve problems they may encounter along the way coming up with solutions. Findings and reflections will be presented as self-made project products like videos, infographics, presentations, virtual dashboards, etc
