"Meister" is a short name that reflects the essence and the main purpose of the GIZ project "Professional Integration of Internally Displaced Persons in Ukraine", which is to improve employment opportunities of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and residents in 6 regions (Dnipro, Zaporizhzhia, Poltava, Kharkiv Oblasts and government-controlled areas of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts).
The project "Professional Integration of Internally Displaced Persons in Ukraine" is financed by the Government of Germany, implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and introduced as a response to the conflict in eastern Ukraine.
Over 1.4 million residents of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts were forced to leave their homes to start over with a clean slate in the new place. One of the challenges IDPs and host communities faced with is a lack of vacancies or mismatch between skills and previous experience and the professions which are in demand in the region.
That is why the Meister project directed its activities to create opportunities for professional retraining and advanced training. Within the framework of the project, IDPs and residents of host communities of 6 Oblasts have the opportunity to be trained for free, choosing one of the existing clusters, where there is a significant demand for qualified specialists.
Trainings are free for participants and take place on the basis of educational institutions with good reputation in the market of educational services. Depending on the course of study, it can last from a few weeks to half a year. You can find clusters, schedules or other detailed information on the website in the "Courses" section or call the hotline.
Within the framework of the Meister project, there are opportunities for professional orientation of participants, skills evaluation, career counselling, etc.
