Project Details

Based on the assumption that career development is a lifelong experience, (RE)BUILD project intends to provide innovative learning experiences that promote practical intelligence for adults with fewer opportunities to deal with their personal expectations, and to acquire personal flexibility for decision-making and exploration of career opportunities, while also helping VET professionals and adult educators to better intervene in career guidance and management programmes with low-skilled and marginalised adultsLifelong learning is increasingly taking a prominent role in the education and training policies in EU.
The fact that low-skilled adults have the lowest level of engagement in educational activities remains a concern in the EU education policies. These disparities are also very much felt in the labour market: Cedefop’s most recent projections for employment by 2025 reinforce the trend that the future of work will be knowledge intensive. So, jobs that traditionally require a low level of qualification will imply increasingly complex tasks, requiring the domain of several literacies, including digital and a wide range of basic skills. Furthermore, the current economic scenario is forcing lowskilled or unemployed workers to reconsider their career project.
This is where career management skills and lifelong learning are interrelated: from a strategic point of view, they emerge as two extremely useful fields for understanding what is expected of citizens in a learning society – that is, a society in which people, throughout their lives and from a quality basic training, are continually involved in educational actions in which they seek to deepen, update or renew the structures acquired during initial education, with a view to their application, both within and outside the work contexts.
