On 2 June, the FORESEE project partners met online to discuss the latest updates on the project, including the development of a social dialogue training programme.
FORESEE is a 2-year project co-funded by the European Commission, which aims at strengthening EU social dialogue in social services, develop capacity building of national-level social partners and promote the attractiveness of the sector.
In a dedicated Work Package, the FORESEE partnership is drafting a training programme, which aims to promote social dialogue in social services in those countries where dedicated structures are not developed yet. During this meeting, the partners involved in the development of the two-day training programme had the opportunity to discuss the objectives and expectations from the targeted countries involved (Romania, Poland, Greece and Portugal). Through a theoretical and practical perspective, the training will focus on how to develop independent social dialogue structures, including an illustration of its benefits, such as improvement of working conditions and good practice from other countries.
The first day of the training will be an introduction to social dialogue at EU and national level, including the respective national contexts, while the second day will discuss concrete experiences and practices from countries with a strong social dialogue tradition.
This discussion was followed by an update of each work package, the tasks and next steps. Upcoming project activities and outputs will focus on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the social services workforce, and the attractiveness of the sector.
