About the Eu standard jobs training program

Europe Union need a big number of skill workers of all kind. More and more foreign workers arrives each day at EU countries. Lot of them have problem to adapt on way of working in EU countries.

EU STANDARD JOBS TRAINING PROGRAM want to faciliate this proces.

The first goal of this program is to prepare and adapt foreign workers to the way of working in the European Union.

This program also helps company owners to choose skill workers who will fit all job task in new work place.

EU STANDARD JOBS TRAINING PROGRAM aims to test and train foreign workers to work in Croatia and other European destinations in their countries (before arriving in the new environment) so that they can fulfill all the work tasks set before them.

We are witnessing that European countries have a growing need for foreign labor, and in the years ahead this need will be even greater. Consequently, an increasing number of foreign workers are arriving in EU countries, including Croatia.

In countries from which foreign labor traditionally arrives in Croatia (Serbia, Bosnia, Macedonia), there are fewer and fewer workers, and by removing administrative barriers (time required to obtain a work visa at embassies) for workers from these countries to go to Germany, this situation will further aggravate. Therefore, there is a need to bring workers from increasingly distant destinations, and thus raises the question of the quality of this workforce.

Namely, the arrival of foreign workers from more distant destinations is not quite a simple and fast process, so the problems are even greater when the brought worker does not meet the level of work skills that the employer expects from him.

The only proof of a worker’s qualifications that an employer can obtain before a foreign worker arrives at work (after completing all formalities regarding the Work and Residence Permit, obtaining a Residence Card (ID) and a medical examination) is a diploma, or certificate of competency issued by a particular institution in foreign country.

Often they are issued only formally or at best after an actual test of the candidate’s knowledge, which confirms that he is qualified for a particular profession. But it is questionable whether this level of knowledge and skills corresponds to what a bricklayer, carpenter or façade worker must possess in order to work successfully on our construction sites or other workplaces.

The answer is often negative, which leads to undesirable situations both for the company that brought the employee and for the worker from a distant country.

The company thus creates costs for bringing in workers, and more importantly, it does not have the necessary manpower that it relied on in connection with the contracted jobs and deadlines.

A worker from a foreign country becomes an unemployed person and is forced to return to his country, which is often a big expense. Often such workers remain in Croatia and the EU, as unemployed, which then creates other problems, including social and security.

In order to avoid such situations as much as possible, EU STANDARD JOBS TRAINING PROGRAM has been designed.

The goal of the Program is to test knowledge and train foreign workers in their countries according to the norms and way of working in Croatia and the EU. This will stop the arrival of low-quality and unskilled labor in Croatia and the EU and improve the productivity of Croatian companies.
