Get to Work! - with literacy in the labour market
In the Netherlands several organisations and educational institutions support clients who receive an allowance during their reintegration in a paid job. Get to work! can be used to support those clients who struggle with literacy. Get to work! contains educational material specifically designed for functional illiterates looking for a job. The material provides assignments and instruction for language acquisition that are directly linked to specific labour skills as well as skills necessary for looking for and finding work. There are 10 lessons spread over 20 meetings. Essential to the programme is the fact that the reintegration candidates are matched with a trained volunteer while working with the Get to work!-material.
Materials are available in Dutch. Introduction of the materials Get to Work! can be founded HERE
