This webinar introduces guidelines for employment services in response to the Syria crisis, aiming at harmonising approaches and increasing collaboration. Employment Services facilitate the match between job seekers and employers through a process of registration, counselling, referral and placement. They also produce valuable statistics for the purpose of policy making.

Audience

The webinar is recommended to all No Lost Generation partners working on the Syria Response, under all three NLG pillars and particularly to those in Youth & Adolescents and Livelihoods.

Course objectives
