P4W Expert Journal 1: Get to know the project and what happened in the first 6 months!

Eindhoven
Eindhoven P4W
In his 1st Journal, Ronald Lievens, UIA expert of the P4W project, discusses all key activities that you need to know about it, what the project is about and how it approaches its innovative solution to tackle the growth paradox in the Dutch Brainport region, where the continued economic growth coexists with a growing distance to the labour market and decreased employability for the lower-educated workforce.
He shares his insights on how P4W addresses this call for a structural change by creating a solution, which redesigns the journey to (re)employment for the lower educated workforce.
Most importantly, Ronald shares his thoughts on the project’s specific plan to achieve this, through an intersectoral transformation of the labour market and the development of a low threshold, intersectoral platform on which job seekers can create their own “passport for work” profile. In Ronald’s words, the P4W platform, will become a strong link between employers, employees and educational institutes to foster sustainable matches on the labour market.
In this journal, Ronald guides his audience through all the project’s major achievements and accomplishments so far, and discusses the development of the project through the lens of the seven implementation challenges. Read through to get an idea on how the project aims to mitigate each of them!
