There are various initiatives in the Grand Duchy with regard to professional reintegration
Initiation to and guidance for green jobs
For the past 30 years CO-LABOR S.c. has been developing activities in the horticultural, forestry and environmental sector.
All of these activities provide an economic framework and as such create a platform for vocational training which matches the demands of the labour market. CO-LABOR's main objective is professional (re)integration through guidance, qualification and integration into the labour market.
The guiding principle of our actions is to support the people receiving assistance, in line with their capabilities, in gaining the most independent and professional way of life possible. Our activities enable professional integration through work in real situations.
In partnership with the ADEM and the country's various social services, job seekers are recruited as part of a professional integration measure. They are then assigned to different CO-LABOR integration workshops.
