GLEAN – Growing Levels of Employability | Entrepreneurship in Agriculture for NEETs

GLEAN, a project funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, opens up the way to a career in the agricultural field for young (18-24 years old) NEETs (ot in Education, Employment or Training) looking for alternative career paths. It aspires to capitalise on the agricultural sector’s documented precious potential and added value for employability, by activating 3 learning pathways in 3 european countries greatly affected by the NEETs issue: Greece, Italy and Spain. GLEAN implemented an innovative, engaging approach for learning the job in the agricultural field, based on the design and implementation of a blended course, combining classroom and online/self-learning with an emphasis on hands-on experience. The project developed the NEET Employability/Entrepreneurship Programme (NEEP), a transversal online learning and training programme for the development of technical and soft skills, accompanied by guidelines and recommendations for the adoption of the NEEP by further institutions.
