This working group focuses on employment policies at local level.
The group agreed on ensuring some continuity to the work done in the last two years, therefore decided to work in 2017 on the following themes:
- Long Term Unemployment (building on the results of the study visit held in Madrid and exploring opportunities to work closely with the European Commission with regards to the implementation of the Council Recommendation)
- Youth Employment (with particular regards to the Youth Guarantee and Youth Employment Initiative as well as to the possible meeting with Commissioner Thyssen next year);
- Skills development and tackling skills mismatch (as a follow up to the high level event held in Rotterdam and in view of the forthcoming Urban partnership on Jobs and skills);
- Partnerships with companies (promotion of apprenticeships, jointly-designed training courses, demand-offer matching measures, etc).
