My professional experience as a tutor for adults in public vocational education and training (VET) started in 2016. In 2017, I began doing career counselling as well, offering career guidance and counselling for vulnerable groups.
Since then, I have met many young migrants, refugees and asylum seekers who had abruptly abandoned their education and were looking for new horizons and opportunities.
During the career guidance seminars, individuals from vulnerable communities were informed about how to get accepted to VET schools. We explained that by enrolling in a VET school they would be able to earn a diploma which would facilitate job search and career development in their field of study.
Fajz from Pakistan and Sadak from Afghanistan as well as many others who attend VET and vocational schools offered by the Greek Manpower Employment Organisation aim to become chefs, car technicians and mechanics and other professions too.
