    Mauritania’s Agence National pour la Promotion de l'emploi des Jeunes aimed, through this Action, to introduce soft-skills considerations into its strategies and tools for promoting youth employment. In the Partner’s look, a fair integration of soft-skills into employment portion strategies is indeed key to extend employability to persons that might not have formal strong education or professional background. SOCIEUX+ response has been incremental, starting from building a consensual definition of soft-skills among relevant employment stakeholders; on this agreed basis, a toolkit for employment counsellors to enhance job-seekers’ employability based on the development, or the valorization, of (existing) soft-skills. Along French experts, Belgium’s FOREM provided peers’ support, including through remote e-learning of employment promotion agents.
