METAdrasi, in cooperation with the UNHCR, launches a new education and training programme aiming at facilitating the access of the refugee and migrant population to the labour market.
Refugees, beneficiaries of temporary protection and migrants – aged 18 and over – are being offered the opportunity to acquire the necessary skills for employment in the field of childcare and care of infants. In addition, upon successful completion of the training, they will have the opportunity to join the relevant roster of the Hellenic Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, with the aim of being employed as custodians/nannies within the framework of the “Neighbourhood Nannies” action.
