Activity Line/Strategies for fostering employment
Promotion of quality employment for all
The promotion of quality employment for all is a municipal priority to fight against unemployment and precarious work and Barcelona Activa is charged with boosting it in a cross-cutting way.
To achieve these goals, different municipal strategies have been defined. The Employment strategy of Barcelona 2016-2020 (ESB) is the central employment strategy of the city council, agreed with the social stakeholders. It incorporates four major strategic lines and within which its seventy measures are distributed. The Action Plan for Employment 2017 is the annual plan that identifies the measures used to operate the strategic lines in the ESB. Furthermore, the Youth Employment Plan is aimed at young people as a specific priority target group.
The activity of Barcelona Activa to foster employment is structured in 4 major areas:
1. Guidance for employment: information about the labour market, professional guidance, actions about geographical mobility, tutoring and coaching in labour insertion, an overview of the different trades, awareness-building actions and entrepreneurship.
2. Training and skills acquisition: technical-professional training; training in key, basic and transversal skills; internships.
3. Experience and work programmes: labour experience actions (such as employment plans, work in the neighbourhoods, etc.).
4. Labour market and intermediation: Enterprise-employment platform, job search by sector (market places), job search spaces, job search actions, intermediation, tailor-made recruitment action for companies, new web contents and web visits.
Barcelona Activa provides support in the job search process and professional development by means of a programme that combines advisory and guidance services, more than 200 short-length activities, online tools and resources and programmes for specific groups. The offer of activities is designed to provide the people with skills throughout their professional career in accordance with the current demands of the companies and of the labour market.
Porta22, the New Jobs Space, is the space in which Barcelona Activa makes available to the citizens a free access space for finding work, guiding their professional future, and evolving in the labour world. The employment line counts on the facilities of the Convent de Sant AgustÝ and Ca n'Andalet, specialized spaces for attending people who need training, guidance and advice for labour insertion.
