Trendhuis CVBA

Time4YourTalent (T4YT) is a system developed in order to motivate long-term unemployed and employed people heading towards burn-out to work with motivation and inspiration again. This motivation comes from an informal and guided talent-track. The participants of the Time4YourTalent project discover their talents in two different phases: Test&Tackle and Try&Taste. These are methods that are used in tandem to reveal the unknown strengths of the target audience. Within these two phases participants learn to identify, recognize and develop their talents.

Both Test&Tackle and Try&Taste are innovative methods for the development and validation of talent. These tools go against the mainstream diploma thinking of employers, and focus on talents and motivation. Nowadays, it is important for all employees and unemployed people to keep on learning in different ways!
