The aim of the project “My chance in Poland” is to increase the basic skills of foreigners with the right to legal employment in Poland. Persons participating in the project will be able to improve the level of their skills in understanding and creating information, mathematical reasoning, digital skills and social competences through support comprising training, counselling and, for those willing to participate, psychological assistance.
The support within the framework of the project “My chance in Poland” may be used by a person who
