European Commission’s Drop’pin website aims to help young people eager to improve their skills
There are many unemployed young people in Europe who are eager to get a foot on the employment ladder but don’t know how to take the first step. Perhaps they don’t have enough confidence or they don’t have all the skills they need. Led by the European Commission, Drop’pin is a new platform to help bring young people looking to better their knowledge, skills and abilities closer to organisations offering opportunities to improve them. Drop’pin is not a job-matching site but it lists apprenticeships, traineeships, training programmes, e-learning courses, language training, mentoring and coaching schemes, as well as various social services (such as assistance with housing), across a range of sectors. It enables organisations such as large corporations, SMEs and NGOs to promote youth-oriented opportunities to a ready and willing pool of young people. It also facilitates networking and collaboration across Europe with the aim of forming partnerships to create programmes to improve young people’s employability and develop the hard-to-find skills that businesses need.
