The PROFINT platform is dedicated to the professionalization of people and organizations that support the integration of migrants and refugees in Europe. It is organized around the PROFINT model and the recommendations it sets out in four main areas of action by those involved in the integration of migrants and refugees. It offers:

- PROFESSIONAL RESOURCES (educational cases, tools, good practices) linked to the model, presented and structured in such a way as to put users of the platform in a professionalizing process.

- A TRAINING which can be followed online by professionals, individually or in groups, and which at the same time offers all the supports necessary to organize face-to-face training, adapted to the context and requests of the participants.

The PROFINT platform is the final production of the PROFINT project, carried out as part of an Erasmus + partnership between four small organizations working in France, Italy and Sweden for the support and training of people far from employment. Their aim was to help, on the basis of their own experience, those concerned with the integration of refugees and migrants to implement effective support. Throughout the course of the project, they were particularly concerned by two issues: Knowing how to meet all the learning needs of the beneficiaries and fostering an effective articulation of the various actions and initiatives carried out to meet these needs.

The PROFINT project has adopted an approach similar to "action research", establishing a back and forth process between analysis of practices/experimentation and formalization/construction of tools by partner teams. The PROFINT project thus involved the partner teams in a concrete experience of professionalization that they formalized in the form of the PROFINT platform to share it with all those who want to successfully integrate migrants and refugees in their country.

    The best way to ensure adequate support for the integration of people into any host community, is to use the experience of professional players and adapt it to the needs and demands of the target group(s). And that is exactly what this project is trying to do - well done!
