About project

Project Learning from Experience of PES Practitioners in EU is implemented under the Operational Programme Human Resources and Employment (priority line 5 International Cooperation) and is funded by the European Social Fund and the state budget. The project is implemented by National Training Fund, namely its Employment Team.

The main objective of the project is to support innovative approaches in the Czech employment policy through international cooperation between regional and national public employment services of EU countries, especially the new member countries. The target groups are professionals of the MoLSA and staff of Labour Offices. The other target groups are other stakeholders at the regional labour market as well as the researchers and education providers.

The project supports the experience exchange of public employment  services in the areas of development and implementation of employment policies and management of its institutional bodies, the transfer of (positive or negative) experience in foreign employment services at national and regional level and knowledge of the implementation of state policies in the European labour markets.

It is envisaged to organize the thematic seminars, international conference and particularly to develop the internet platform ProEmployment for presentation of examples of good practice and implementation of the European Employment Strategy at regional and national labour markets.

The project period is October 2010 - September 2013.
