Austrian CRISISS partner WIN organised a seminar for the CRISISS project on 30th November 2022. 13 experts participated in this event. They came from various organisations linked to social services.
The seminar consisted of three parts:

  • The plenary session comprised the welcome address and an introductory speech by Heinz
    Rammel, Chairman of the Central Works Council of the Public Employment Service Austria,
    and the presentation of the CRISISS tools through the Austrian project coordinator, Wolfgang
  • A presentation and a workshop focusing on the didactic structure of the assessment of soft
    skills acquired in times of crisis;
  • A final round table discussion about the importance of social skills and their potentials for job
    chances, and mainstreaming the results into trainings and future collaborations.

The composition of the participants covered a broad spectrum; from labour market experts,
stakeholders from ministry, via representatives from adult education organisations to
representatives from NGO with a high proportion of volunteers. In this respect, the event can be
seen as very successful.
