This Comparison State of Art of youth workers and NEETs report was built using data collection through online questionnaires carried out in the four project partner countries – Estonia, Bulgaria, Spain and Italy. The purpose of the questionnaire was to identify the current situation that youth workers face in their everyday practice while working with NEETs group. The questionnaire was developed for all youth workers, volunteers, trainers and professionals who work in sectors where they come into contact with young people belonging to NEETs.
This report was developed to serve as an analysis of the current situation youth workers face in their everyday practice in terms of tools available, training provided, possibilities for improvement, capacity building issues and training needs of youth workers, who are working with NEETs in the participating countries.
Moreover, thanks to the questionnaire results the project team was able to define the concrete gaps related to the project topic in terms of skills, knowledge and competences for equipping youth workers and educators. This detected gap will be addressed by project team through the realization of the e-learning modules (IO1), which main contents will be based on the findings of the Comparison State of Art of youth workers and NEETs report.
