Representatives from DOCUMENTA attended the transnational meeting took place in Limassol on 19 and 20 March 2015 within «The evolving role of the JOB BROKER across the EU» project. Anaplasis Business Consultants Ltd hosted the event
The event included a Workshop on 20 March 2015 for Job Brokers and Job Brokering organisations from 5 Member States. The workshop was atended by 21 representatives from Private Employment Agencies, Public Employment Services and Vocational Training organisations where it was presented the Partnership’s work done to date. The Workshop provided an opportunity for those attending to share information about effective job brokering models in the EU and also to exchange views about the skill development needs of job brokers. The Workshop’s results, ultimately, will inform the development of a Good Practice Guide, which at its core is a Competency Framework. This tangible result would be made available to the wider public in the Dissemination Event that will take place in June in the city of Santander (Spain).
