The second project meeting was hosted by HERMES, in Malta, on the 01st and 02nd April 2019.
During the 2-day meeting Partners discussed the progress of the project to date, as well as the steps needed in the next months to develop the IO2-VET4ALL Training Curriculum for VET Staff. Moreover, partners discussed also the development of IO3-VET4ALL In-company Vademecum.
In the first six months of the project, each partner organization was busy carrying out a Focus Group involving stakeholders who deal with students with any kind of disability and special needs: teachers/VET staff, job coaches, career and vocational counsellors, etc. In total, 60 people from public and private sectors as well as NGOs were involved in this first stage.
Through this methodology, they highlighted their difficulties when dealing with WBL experiences for students with disabilities and special needs as well as their training needs. According to them, specific difficulties are related to:
- The behaviour of the young people;
- The training;
- The introduction to the companies.
Thanks to this analysis the Spanish team of Centro San Viator was able to produce the first Intellectual Output.
The VET4ALL – Didactical Guidelines for VET Staff, together with the results of the focus group held in each Country were presented at the 2nd project meeting and are now ready for downloading and further use from target groups and stakeholders. They are available on the project website in the following languages: English, Bulgarian, Italian, French, Spanish, Romanian.
