The project „Act Your Job" focused on improving skills for employment and career development for under 25-year-old students through theatrical performance.
The idea of the project was based on the assumption that theatre is a powerful tool for self-development and an effective way of communication. Theatre can support employment searchor training.
There is a lack of innovative methods in training young groups for employment and self-employment, while nowadays, unemployment among young people is a very serious problem of European countries. The project was designed to use theatre as a powerful tool for self-development to help students access a customized training path, find a job, become more active and find "their own way".
Within the framework of the project, selected groups of students wrote and performed a theatre play. The process of preparing and performing a theatrical play helped to boost their personal and social skills, which resulted in improving their situation in a labour market.
Act Your Job" was a Leonardo da Vinci project funded by the European Union within the framework of the Lifelong Learning Programme (project agreement no. 2012-1-ES1-LEO04-51966 5). Durance of the project was 24 months from August 2012 to July 2014. The project was carried out by four institutions from four countries from the European Union.
