eDuo Project

Specialization: In the company as of the first day.

Bet on today’s youth education: they are the workers of tomorrow!

The eDuo Project was created in 2011 when, in the midst of the crisis, companies alerted us to the elimination of low-skilled jobs and recommended for our young participants to at least complete intermediate level vocational training to improve their prospects for quality jobs.

Since then, we have worked with vocational training centers to create a model in which classroom education is alternated with on-the-job training so as to reduce high dropout rates during the first year (between 30% and 50%).

As part of our mission to continuously improve the project, in 2018 we opened the initiative to new sectors in which there is a significant imbalance between supply and demand (courses with high
dropout rates, despite the excellent employment opportunities in those fields).

For the first year of vocational training, we have also introduced challenge-based learning and design thinking. These concepts have served as the common thread for corporate involvement and has helped participants to design their own solution to the challenge through masterclasses and group mentoring sessions.
