How was this toolkit developed?
The toolkit is a result of Cedefop's projects on “VET for social inclusion and labour market integration” carried out between 2018-2020 and ongoing internal research on tackling early leaving and VET teachers and trainers supporting young NEETs. The NEETs profiles and the risk factors are inspired from Eurofound’s work; they have been defined in close collaboration with Massimiliano Mascherini and his team, and adapted to serve the needs of the toolkit users. The toolkit was launched in October 2021.
The development of the toolkit was under the responsibility of Irene Psifidou, Expert at the Department for VET and Skills, who conceptualised it and edited its resources, supported by Alexandra Farazouli, Cedefop trainee.
Currently, the toolkit is managed by a team comprised of Irene Psifidou, Toolkit and Team Coordinator; Anthie Kyriakopoulou, Assistant, VET toolkit Administrator; and Cedefop trainee; at the Department for VET and Skills, headed by Antonio Ranieri.
