A9 - Short description of the GP
The CORE Project tackles the issues, common to all territories involved, of youth unemployment and social exclusion of specific target groups, and proposes an innovative governance model for social inclusion policies based on participatory processes which mobilise local economic, social and political resources. The proposed local partnership model builds upon the notion of local actors/stakeholders' responsibility and accountability. Its focus is on local development and employment policies and it is aimed at creating a shared model for a community-shared agreement. Although the experience stems from a European project, the methodology and the way in which it has been put into practice in Andalusia deserves to be highlighted.

  1. a map of stakeholders has been prepared and there has been cross-sectoral meetings to identify the needs within the social economy sector.
  2. once the needs have been identified, the results have been contrasted with the social entrepreneurs' own view and it has been confirmed that there is a lack in training.
  3. A memorandum of understanding has been signed by public and private actors in order to commit to cooperation in this field.
  4. the scope of the experience was limited to insertion companies ( as far as the piloting is concerned), with whom a training/educational path was built up with the intervention of the public administration (co-ordinating different pre-existing programmes) and private companies.
  5. The training path was connected to the acquisition of competences as well as entrepreneurship in a time of crisis.

As a result, the insertion companies are improving their own aims, not only seeking the labour insertion of workers, but also their possibilities to run their own businesses.
