In a context marked by low support offered by universities to their students and the low profile of career centres, “LEAP – Link Education and Practice” offers a space for reflection for students, employers, public institutions and NGOs in order to create a bridge between existing educational provision and labour market requirements. Founded as a student initiative, it has grown to support the establishment of career centres at 40 universities in Romania.
