'Imagining the Future': Defining new approaches to connect young Europeans with learning disabilities to supported employment, and the community.
Date du début: 1 oct. 2015, Date de fin: 31 août 2018 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

‘Imagining the Future’ is a proposed project to address participatory barriers which young people with learning disabilities often face, when accessing supported employment and the community. ‘Imagining the Future’ (or IF) will contribute to strategic dialogues about shaping special education provision, within the changing educational and economic landscape of 21st Century Europe. ‘Imagining the Future’ (or IF) will also show what future special education provision could "look like", to a range of stakeholders, including employers, training providers, young people, families, and community organisations. The transnational and multidisciplinary dimension to this project is crucial. It is through involving practitioners from across Europe, as well as teachers, therapists and other special educational professionals, that we can truly “imagine the future” and extend the scope of possibilities for young people with complex needs. ‘Imagining the Future’ will provide young people with meaningful community-based learning opportunities, which will enable them to connect with others, socially, economically, locally and globally. Mini-Enterprises will be set up to enable this, which will include the setting up of “Share Fair” an online safe and accessible platform in which young people with learning disabilities can buy and sell produce, including goods produced at a non-European partner special school in Ghana. Mini-Enterprise activities will happen throughout the duration of the project.
