NCS & LABOUR MARKET

The acquisition of the non-cognitive skills contributes to youth employability and the incorporation of the young people into the labour market. Furthermore, the non-cognitive skills can have an impact on their social inclusion, the possibility of them achieving personal development and improving their social and living conditions.


The recent empirical literature, both in the US and in Europe, supports that non-cognitive skills ar essential for avoiding failure in the labour market. In this regard, non-cognitive skills are equally or even more important than cognition in determining earnings and success. Moreover, labour market earnings tend to be higher among individuals with higher non-cognitive skills.

YOUTH EXCHANGE

The project is funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission

“An European youth exchange for the building of non-cognitive skills” (2015-3-ES02-KA105-007053) contemplates the implementation of a youth exchange. The exchange will be held between 27th June to 2 July, 2016 in Salamanca (Spain) and will count with 22 youngsters from Belgium, France and Spain.

The objective of this youth exchange is to enhance the non-cognitive skills among the youngsters, in order to contribute towards their better integration and performance in the productive world and, as a result, help them improve their quality of life. In this regard, the youngsters will acquire the necessary tools to succeed in the different areas of their lives, thereby favouring the development and enhancing their non-cognitive skills.
