Through the educational project „EDUCATION+”, online courses are offered to young people aged 16-25 in Brazil who are searching a job as well as to small entrepreneurs who live in poor regions, with the aim of providing understanding and knowledge of basic work and business models as well as technical and linguistic terms.

The project is carried out with the project partner ed+, an online platform for training operational workers, informal workers and small entrepreneurs in Brazil mainly located in poor regions and slums (favelas) with the vision to realise the dream of a better life for people without access to professional training and entrepreneurship.

The platform is quick and easy to use and accessible from any smartphone. The courses can all be accessed online and are organised in short, topic-oriented segments. After completing the course and receiving the certificate, the course participants have the opportunity to present themselves directly on the job market through the online job portal of ed+ media partner “Amarelinho”, one of Brazil’s most important platforms for offering jobs and employment for operative and small businesses.
