Brief description of the initiative

The project identified and trained 3 local teams (in as many Moroccan urban areas, probably Casablanca-Settat, Tangiers-Tetouan and the Fez region) of human resources / career advisors. These were local operators who assisted the 2 target beneficiaries of the proposal.

Results and lessons learned

In order to meet the goal of mobilising resources and migrant skills, several training sessions have already taken place. An introductory seminar was held in Casablanca in April 2010, further trainings in Casablanca took place in June 2010 as well as in Fez in July 2010. Questionnaires were administered after each seminar in order to analyse participant satisfaction with the training.

Main objectives

The project identified and trained 3 local teams (in as many Moroccan urban areas, probably Casablanca-Settat, Tangiers-Tetouan and the Fez region) of human resources / career advisors. These were local operators who assisted the 2 target beneficiaries of the proposal.

Country

Morocco

Main activities

The partner organizations undertook the following activities: conduct a study to confirm the 3 geographical areas where to develop the project, select and train the teams of human resources professionals, who in turn advised and accompanied throughout the elaboration of a professional solution young graduates looking for employment (min. 480 in the first year).

The local teams in Morocco have had not only initial but also ongoing, continuous training, thanks to online tutoring and an internet platform to share material and ideas with the partner organizations.

Main beneficiaries

On the one hand, young Moroccan graduates looking for a job, who are advised in their search for a professional solution until they either find a job in the country, or set up their own activity/cooperative or, in a minority of cases, decide to go on to further studies. The information and development gathered in the project would imply that, if the person does eventually decide to migrate, at least the decision will have been pondered and mature.

On the other hand, the teams advised local companies (particularly Moroccan small and medium enterprises) who look to recruit new staff.
