Vocational Education and Training Self-Guidance for Career-Seeking Refugees
Asylum-seekers and refugees often arrive to Europe with dreams of a better life, but limited information about how to realise their ambitions. In particular, our research with young asylum-seekers suggests that they often lack a basic understanding of vocational education and training systems in their new countries, as well as personally meaningful representations of promising vocational pathways.
Together with international partners, SINUS envisions a progressive web application to guide young asylum-seekers through the initial stages in the career discovery journey. Conceived as a multilingual, user-friendly “foot in the door,” the Vocational Education and Training Voices app will combine an interest self-evaluation, motivational video testimonials, and a networking tool to assist with outreach to VET professionals.
