European Pathways to Employment for Disabled Young People
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015, Date de fin: 31 août 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The European Pathways to Employment for Disabled Young People is a 2 year Strategic Partnership project involving Petroc, an FE college from Devon, and Duveholms Gymnasiesärskola, A school from Katrineholm, Sweden. Following work together in LLP and Erasmus+ mobility projects, the partnership have decided to collaborate in an 2 year investigation as to what is the most appropriate delivery model for schools and educational organizations to help ensure that disabled young people can progress from basic education to higher level qualifications and permanent, meaningful employment within the local economy. The partnership are keen to investigate this in detail in recognition of the fact that at a European level only 6% of disabled people are active in the labour market, significantly lower than average figures for able-bodied people. The project will hold a series of partnership meetings and workshops in both countries which will consider 4 specific models of delivery for disabled people that are widely used in education - social enterprise models, internship, job coaching and employer engagement. This will lead to a short-term training activity to be held in April 2017 where 2 groups of disabled young people from both partners will travel to Katrineholm to undertake a specially-tailored condensed training programme based upon the delivery model which is perceived to be most likely to increase the employability of a disabled young person. The project will produce a research briefing paper, and tailored training materials which will be hosted on a dedicated website which will have the overall objective of demonstrating that the chosen delivery model will directly increase a young disabled person's opportunities to obtain a decent job and career in the local economy. The long-term aim of the project is to increase the job-skills and employability of young disabled people across Europe increasing their social well-being and reducing the disparity between he levels of employment between able-bodied and disabled young people.
