London PES Symposium (OCT 2015) - Innovative Practices for Public Employment Services (PES) Under Pressure.
A one day European Symposium about Professional Identity Transformation in European PES
Organized by the EC Funded Project EmployID
As key agents in a volatile labour market, Public Employment Services (PES) across Europe constantly need to adapt, become more resilient and innovative in their work. EmployID, a major EU‐funded four‐year project (2014 – 2018), supports PES managers and practitioners to develop skill sets, knowledge and competences that address the need for integration and activation of job seekers in fast changing labour markets.
The aim of this one-day event is to present, demonstrate and discuss key findings from the initial phases of the EmployID Framework 7 funded EU project, specifically, innovative practices that are being piloted by the three contrasting PES partner organisations:
- Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) UK
- Zavod Republike Slovenije za zaposlovanje (ZRSZ) , Slovenia; and
- Croatian Public Employment Service (CES).
The Symposium will bring together stakeholders from a range of key PES and allied organisations interested in social and technological innovation, as well as the enhancement of Public Employment and Allied Services through ideas and action.
