On this page you can find information about the Italian labour market: recognition of qualifications and skills, educational opportunities, labour procedures, agencies and organizations supporting the socio-economic integration of migrants in the Italian society. 

National institutions and local authorities promote initiatives and educational programs for the labour inclusion of beneficiaries of international protection (hereafter referred to as “refugees”). The validation of academic qualifications and the recognition of formal/informal skills, carried out by official national or regional bodies, are also tools to reduce the skills mismatch existing between the Italian labour market and the migrant workforce.


About Skills2Work

The Skills2Work project aims to promote labour market integration of refugees* by promoting the early validation of formal and informal skills and competences. This is achieved by supporting the reception framework and capacities of relevant authorities, service providers and employers, and by enhancing access to information and services regarding the recognition of skills and qualifications of refugees.
