Mutual Learning on skills for the ICT labour market for people with disabilities

 

Learnabil-IT aims to promote the cooperation and mutual learning between the worlds of work and vocational education and training in the ICT sector, supporting a better labour skills match and a greater employability of people with disabilities in the open labour market.

 

This is done through the identification, analysis and mutual exchange of best practices regarding collaboration mechanisms between employers and their representatives, VET service providers for people with disabilities and other disadvantages (here-after abbreviated to PWDD) and PWDD themselves.

The project also includes a series of mutual learning activities - site visits and webinars - on best practices from each participating country. Beyond the mutual learning, the project will also encourage partners in the effective deployment and transfer of best practices, beyond the execution of the project itself.

 

The Learnabil-IT project is funded by the programme PROGRESS of the European Commission contributing to the strategic goals of creating more and better jobs and offering equal opportunities for all.

 

Project duration:  12 months (1st January 2014 – 31st December 2014)
