IERF (European Research and Training Institute) is an accredited, non-profit, life-long learning organisation. It was created in Paris, in 1994, with two primary objectives: first, to define and create international work experience opportunities that enhance the employability of young people, adults and recent graduates; second, to help develop innovative ways to support employment, notably by building career guidance and training methodologies that leverage comparative Europe-wide research.
Our remit has expanded in line with developing Europe-wide life-long learning objectives, and their application in France. In 1995, we concluded internship and international research partnerships with various organisations in the Ile-de-France region. In 1996, we started working with France’s national employment agency, conducting professional skills appraisals for ‘impatriates’ and expatriates, and helping Ile-de-France residents leverage opportunities abroad. And from 2003 onwards, we have worked with regional and public authorities in France, as well as various international mobility programme, like Leonardo da Vinci, Erasmus+ and Mobil’Access.
Our efforts focus on developing, refreshing and diversifying professional skills, be it through internships, volunteer projects, language study programmes or work opportunities abroad. In all respects, our priority is to enable people to develop new professional assets that will bolster their career.
Located at the crossroads of European and global exchanges, the Île-de-France region is the largest region in economic terms in France and one of the most important in Europe. Composed of 8 departments, it hosts a population of 12 million people, younger than the national average. In 2015 with a budget of 5 billion euros, including 680 million spent on training, learning and employment, the Region wants to make access to life-long learning a right for all Parisians, but also a factor for the future economic development of Île-de-France.
International youth mobility, all groups included (high school students, apprentices, university students, jobseekers) is a published priority of the Ile-de-France. Each year, approximately 20,000 Parisians benefit from one of the 16 existing programmes for European and international mobility with a budget investment of 4.5 million euros.
Integrated into the Development Unit, the Department of Regional, European and international Partnerships (IPSP) is specifically in charge of the international mobility of jobseekers. Since 2002, regional policy in this area includes our own programmes (Mobil’Access, Mobil’Hanoï), in partnership with bilateral cooperation agencies (Mobil’Québec, Mobil’Allemagne) and European programmes such as Eurydice, Leonardo. Since 2013, three new decentralized cooperation zones mobility programmes are being tested: Mobil’Pékin, Mobil’Sao Paulo Mobil’Santiago.
All these mobility programmes for job seekers represent a budget of 1.5 million euros and approximately 1,000 beneficiaries / year.
Created on the initiative of the elected representatives of the City of Nanterre and French Central Government, the Employment and Training Centre is involved in the local governance of employment and integration policies in Nanterre.
The Nanterre Employment and Training Centre is a decision-making support resource for the development of employment in a rapidly changing territory and a focus for the mobilisation and coordination in one structure of stakeholders working to provide jobs for all.
The structure works in partnership with all agencies from our local area who are involved in the fields of the economy, creation of business, training, employment and integration. The objectives are to ensure the coherence, capitalisation and consolidation of the work of partners through five priority action areas:
– Develop a shared territorial strategy – from diagnosis to action plan
– Actively work to anticipate economic change
– Contribute to the development of local employment
– Reducing cultural and social barriers to access to employment
– To welcome, inform, guide and support people towards securing qualifications and employment in France and abroad.
It is through this multi purpose single centre that we work to improve youth and adult unemployment and to provide information, guidance and support of the public, to develop the right to life-long training and to offer a dedicated space for meetings and exchanges with businesses.
The different input modes for institutions and associations in the MEF Centre encourage the development of processes for personal projects, dynamics and citizenship through 3 areas of dedicated activities:
– Professional and social integration with the ‘Mission Locale’, a ‘PLIE’, a job insertion department and ‘Cap Emploi’
– Access to information and support for projects with the ‘Cité des Métiers’: via the establishment of a network for information and career guidance.
– The relationship with businesses and economic stakeholders with the inter-company project platform for GPECT projects (Regionalised Management of Jobs and Skills) and for projects on Insertion and the development of employment.
