Ladies first! Project aims to empower teachers, trainers and counselors to facilitate and empower women beneficiaries in order to gain the necessary stability in-between working and personal life, especially in the framework of crisis. Based on two successful interventions (Work Life Balance in Greek Women Employes in national / Greek level and U-Coach! in European/ LLL level), within the context of this proposal, 7 partner organizations (Educational authorities, Schools and VET providers, companies and social partners) from 6 countries will work together to develop Ladies First! Project, extending their scope beyond the borders of their own countries in order to define common strategies to address work life balance for women in Europe. Participating organizations will use and promote also European transparency tools such as EQF, ECVET and Europass, to promote transnational mobility, following the recommendations of the Bruges Communiqué, Supporting VET in Europe.
