The only Estonian partner in the project is Tallinn Unversity Rakvere College. As as a research and educational institution of the region we are able to contribute to the regional development through research of this emerging social challenge – the challenge brought along by work-migration.
Our activities during the project are:
Rakvere College is currently in the middle of conducting the survey among the schools and social workers of the county. While the schools (36 schools alltogether) of Lääne-Viru County have received a written questionnaire to reply to, the social workers are interviewed in a group and individually if necessary. The next gathering of the social workers will be held on the 11th of February in a new and recently inaugurated Competence Hub Smart House where also the Municipality of Rakvere holds its offices. The researcher conducting the surveys is Kersti Kriisk, PhD student in Social Sciences.
The results and summary article will be published in the end of February and shared also right here, on REGI’s website!
