JA Europe works with Hyundai Motor Europe to provide students with skills for the job market. The automotive industry is constantly looking for skilled automotive professionals who are difficult to find due to missing skills and competencies. The partnership between JA Europe and Hyundai Motor Europe is helping to increase the employability skills and entrepreneurship spirit of the young generation in Europe.
During 2012-2015, 10,000 young people between the ages of 15 and 18 in 15 European countries have had the opportunity to try their hands at enterprise, learn valuable skills and apply their knowledge in new ways. With support from their teachers, they will be exposed to a variety of learning-by-doing approaches and work with Hyundai business volunteers from all over Europe.
During 2015-2016, the Skills for the Future programme will run for its 4th consecutive school-year and aim to reach 5,000 students across Europe.
