Construction work is more and more left to TCN workers who are hired for specific work tasks and for unskilled work by (sub-)contractors. For many TCNs, construction work is the entrance to the labor market. Because of differences in culture, language barriers and knowledge about national policies, these workers have a higher potential to be exposed to work related risk factors and labor market exclusion.
The In2C project aims to facilitate and foster early and effective integration of TCNs in labor market in construction sector through an integrated training, which target to enhance host country language skills in their job field, and networking with employers who will actively be engaged in In2C activities.
The activities of the project will include awareness raising activities, identification of good practices, labor market needs and barriers in the construction sector, training programs (improvement of language skills in technical terminology, knowledge of national and European policies, duties and obligations at the workplace, safety and hygiene issues, etc) as well as networking for matching employers with TCNs. At least 1000 people (400 TCNs, 400 employers & 200 members of VET providers, NGOs and other stakeholders) will benefit directly through the project’s activities.
