The 4 trainings courses (for At home caregiver, personal assistant for the disabled, IT training and foreign language training) in Crucea, Silistea and Mihail Kogalniceanu Communes were realized in the period September 2017 - April 2018. The vocational training course in Bulgaria was also completed with 15 trainees graduating the training course for personal assistants and 30 trainees – the “At home caregiver” training. The IT and language courses were implemented in Bulgaria, with the exception of the training in German language, which is forthcoming.

The Cross-border Strategy for employment of labour force and social inclusion in rural areas was developed in March 2018.
