The “LIKEHOME – Assessing and recognising the prior learning of migrants. Bridging the gap and paving the road to educational and social integration” project has presented the final policy recommendations. The project already set up the learning portal which connects all e-tools, which assist newly arrived migrants or refugees as well as host countries in the assessment of prior learning levels of migrants.

The overall aim of the LIKEHOME project is to foster the inclusion of newly arrived migrants and refugees to the host country education and training system, to the local economy and to the society in general. More specifically, LikeHome project’s strategic objective is to design and deliver a Framework of best practices, based on practices that have been successfully used in other cases, for the assessment and recognition of migrants’ prior learning, qualifications and competencies. A set of e-tools is also delivered to support this goal.

Some countries are exceptions like Germany, Greece and Italy with huge numbers arriving, Portugal wishing to get more refugees and Turkey serving as a buffer zone. Four of these countries are represented in the consortium comprising 10 partners from 5 countries.

Around 25 million persons born in a third country are currently living in the European Union, representing 5% of its total population. Integrating immigrants is a fundamental and active process.
