We Are at Work, Too
The aim of We are at Work too project is to enable students with mild intellectual disabilities to receive better social and self-care skills at home (in the family) with a holistic approach, while at the same time they receive better quality vocational education at the standards demanded by the labour market to increase employability in their fields after graduation. In many studies, it has been observed that mentally retarded children’s learning capacity increases in the short term with their parent’s participation of education programs, as well as the child’s sense of trust and language skills. For this reason, a comprehensive and planned family education program is prepared, according to the concrete needs and addressing the target audience. In particular, the following intellectual outputs are developed:
- 01 International Research on Family Education and Student Professional Competences;
- 02 Family Education Programme Training modules;
- 03 Supportive Vocational Education Modules for Students;
- 04 Implementation Guide for Trainers.
VITECO is the technical partner of the project. It is in charge of the project website and development of the e-learning platform.
