On March 21 and 23, 2023 in Mostar, training on the topic of Strengthening the competencies of unemployed persons was completed in the framework of the project "Support to youth employment in the IT sector".
Experts from the Employment Service of Herzegovina Neretva Canton held two one-day workshops on three topics:
-Writing a CV and motivational letter;
- Interview with the employer
- Raising self-confidence and communication.
The goal of the training is the transfer of knowledge and skills to unemployed persons who have already undergone professional training in the IT sector, in order to increase their competitiveness and employability on the labor market.
REDAH in partnership with the City of Mostar, the University of Mostar, the company IT odjel d.o.o. Mostar and the Employment Service of HNŽ/HNK is starting the implementation of the project "SUPPORT TO YOUTH EMPLOYMENT IN THE IT SECTOR", which will last 21 months with a total value of 400,182 KM, of which the amount of EU grant funds is 312,932 KM. The project intends to reduce the discrepancy between the currently recorded large number of unemployed young people and the expressed need of companies from the IT sector for a specific occupational profile. The local partnership will initiate a process with planned activities that will create methods and tools for long-term sustainability through the Local Action Plan for employment of the City of Mostar.

This project aims to contribute to the improvement of employment in local communities through local partnerships for employment and improve the skills and opportunities for employment of persons in a disadvantageous position on the labor market.
