This project ties in with the demands of Romania as a country in transition where the economy is slowly growing and beginning to stabilise. In the future, more skilled workers and trained professionals will be needed to support economic growth and to keep up with the developments of the European market. Therefore, educational projects have to keep in close contact with enterprises to be able to take into account the current needs of the job market. Students, teachers and enterprises have to be prepared to meet the challenges of the global market economy together. On the personal level, the development of transversal competences, life skills and the ability to recognize and assess one’s own potential are key elements to be able to meet the demands of the modern employment market.
All students in the last years of gymnasium and the first year of technical and vocational education, from the participating schools, have received vocational guidance/career development coaching. Respective objectives have been defined for teachers, schools and businesses. At the end of the project JOBS will have had an influence in the change of educational policies. Changes in policies will have started to be implemented .
