  • Enrolment campaign in conjunction with the ‘FIND YOUR WAY TO THE WORLD OF WORK’ project


    As part of the ‘Find your way to the world of work’ project, funded by the EEA and Norway Grants, under the Fund for Youth Employment, we have launched a campaign to boost enrolment in secondary and post-compulsory education.

    As you know, one of the main actions and objectives of the #FIND project is to support young people between the ages of 15 and 29 in their pursuit to gain better access to and complete compulsory secondary education. Additionally, it encourages students to continue their studies at post-compulsory levels.

    Alongside this initiative, we at the Fundación Secretariado Gitano have started a promotional campaign with videos of testimonials from our educational ambassadors. These video testimonials serve to share the expectations and motivation behind several young people who decided to continue their studies at the post-compulsory level and how this decision has influenced their personal and professional development.

    Even today, 64.4% of Gitanos between the ages of 16 and 24 do not complete their basic education (they do not obtain their Compulsory Secondary Education (ESO) diploma); reversing this statistic is one of the main objectives and challenges of Fundación Secretariado Gitano. Likewise, we strive to increase the number of young people in post-compulsory education.

    Thanks to a series of educational programmes implemented by FSG during 2019, 3,426 students have received support from primary education up to university.

    Specifically, since the beginning of the FIND project, a total of 52 students enrolled in post-compulsory education and continued their educational training, as they understand that it is key to better employability in the short term.
