Get Into Greece!

The Get Into programme is designed specifically for young people between the ages of 18 and 30, to provide them with the necessary training and work experience they need to find a job.

How does it work?

The programme directly links training with real market needs. In collaboration with large companies in Greece that have available job openings, Get Into provides training from qualified professionals and VET trainers that will help participants develop the necessary soft and hard skills that employers seek, today.

In the last year alone, more than 6,000 young people have secured jobs across the UK through the Get into courses, while 98% of participants that have completed the programme feel better equipped and more self-confident.

Why is it successful?
Get Into:
  • Targets skills shortages in specific employment sectors
  • Involves employers in the development and delivery of the programme
  • Provides young people with the skills and experience needed to move into a specific sector and secure sustainable jobs
  • Fosters relationships between employers and training providers

The Bodossaki Foundation is one of the most respected privately owned public-benefit organisations in Greece. It was established in 1972 by Prodromos - Bodossakis Athanassiades, who decided to donate his entire fortune in order to promote the provision of health care, equality of opportunity, education, scientific progress and the protection of the environment. The Bodossaki Foundation has deep knowledge of the non-profit sector in Greece and has managed since its inception more than €400m that has been spent placing great emphasis on decreasing inequality of opportunity; on contributing to the education of young people; on improving medical and research infrastructure and on promoting environmental protection.
The Foundation also supports the work of NGOs that treat socially vulnerable groups and has lately set the strengthening of civil society as one of its primary objectives.
