Work Integration Social Enterprises for Digital Upskilling (WISE UP) is a two year long Erasmus + project.
Description of the project
The project aims to increase the capacity of vulnerable people to integrate the labour market by developing digital education training and improving the mentoring they receive from educators in work integration social enterprises (WISEs).
The project aims to develop tools for the development of methodologies for socio-vocational accompaniment of WISEs in the partner's countries and at the European level.
