Each year, in order to prevent (future) youth unemployment and to draw attention to the most promising labour market sectors of technology and care, employers in Rotterdam Zuid provide a number of ‘AanDeBak’ guarantees. These are job guarantees linked to a set of training courses selected by the employer. When young people from Rotterdam Zuid choose such a course, they are guaranteed a job! In order to help young people make a well-considered choice, businesses are introducing students in Rotterdam Zuid to the work that they would be doing in their sector.
We observe that enthusing young people does not just happen by itself. Young people are particularly reluctant to gain experience in professional practice. Organising excursions, company visits and practical assignments in collaboration with businesses and schools is time-consuming, but very worthwhile!
