Waff (Viennese employee promotion fund) provides information and support to participants.
Confederation of Viennese social institutions (Dachverband Wiener Sozialeinrichtungen) provides information about the measure.
AMS (Austrian PES) provides information about the programme, hosting of events in Berufsinformationszentren (job information centres).
Attendance at the events could be seen as an indicator to measure the progress of the policy instrument. However, no detailed information is publicly available.
It is innovative in the sense of improved skills governance, as jobseekers are strategically directed towards training in occupations for which skills shortages exist at local level. Another aspect of improved governance is the working partnership with key stakeholders.

Engagement of stakeholders
