Designing and implementing sound labour market information systems, including accurate labour market needs assessment and skills anticipation, and putting in place processes for skills recognition are important to prevent brain waste and deskilling, poor labour market integration and deterioration of working conditions for all workers, including migrant workers. Access to skills recognition processes, especially for low- and medium-skilled migrant workers, is often limited, while migrants frequently encounter difficulties in articulating their experiences from the destination countries into better human resources development opportunities on their return. In this course, organized in close cooperation with the ILO's MIGRANT and SKILLS branches and the European Training Foundation, participants learn about the skills dimensions of labour migration and how to design programmes to improve skills development and recognition initiatives for migrant workers. Join this course to learn how to improve and diversify the skills of migrant workers.
