CALL FOR TENDERS External Evaluation of the project E.MM.E.: Enterprises Meet Migrants for Employment AMIF/2017/AG/INTE/821726

This call is issued by the Consortium of the project E.M.M.E.-Enterprises Meet migrants for Employment, which intends to commission a contract for the provision of external evaluation services for the project itself.

  1. General information
    Summary of the project
    The EMME project aims to promote and raise awareness on early and effective integration of third country nationals in the labour market. To reach this overall objective the project envisages a transnational partnership composed by key actors in the field of labour market integration, private employment service, support and representation of enterprises, education and vocational training.
    The partner organizations will involve enterprises since the beginning of the project and will offer a range of interconnected services aimed at:
  • Promoting diversity and non-discrimination at the workplace
  • Promoting the use of EU Skills Profile Tool for TCNs
  • Providing training programmes that support TCNs to integrate into the workplace and supporting their skills development
  • Supporting employers in hiring TCNs
  • Providing post placement support to TCNs and employers
    The short term beneficiaries are 100 enterprises involved in the activities (engaged in needs analysis focus groups and workshops to promote diversity management) and 60 partner organisations’ staff who will be trained on common methodologies and EU tools (EU skills profile tool for TCNs) to foster the skills assessment of TCNs. On the medium term: 300 TCNs will be trained (training based on labour market needs), 100 TCNs will be offered placement opportunities and post placement support (EMME Desk and tutoring activity) and the use of EU tools will be spread on other staff of partner organisations (approx. 3500 staff). Thanks to the valorisation activities other EU organisations, TCNs and enterprises (long term beneficiaries) will benefit from the project results.
