WHAT WILL BE THE RESULTS?

The project will contribute to improve the employability chances of adults with disabilities by providing them a modular training to become (co-)trainers. The new skills and knowledge will broaden their job opportunities and expand their possibilities for active and fulfilled lives. At the same time, participants will be able to support their peers towards the labour market and also those professional awareness raising equality training / awareness programs designed for employers, HR professionals, decision makers that are proven to be a major step towards successful employability of the population with disabilities.

The partnership develops 2 Intellectual Outputs to reach the goals:

1. The “Train the trainer” guideline will be elaborated for professionals and adult educators/trainers to prepare them to train participants with disability (target group) to become professional co-trainers or peer supporters. The elaborated training guide will enable professionals/trainers/educators to provide a modular training for a group of disabled learners, and these professionals will also be trained to adapt the training material to the different participants, local context/circumstances.

2. The „Train the co-trainer” training curriculum will be elaborated for disabled co-trainers. Project partners share the idea that awareness raising trainings concerning disability issues to be authentic the training should be presented by people with disability, wherever this is possible. The partners will therefore elaborate and test a training curriculum to prepare disabled people to train and support their fellows, and to become professional, experienced co-trainers. The training material will be elaborated in a way to improve their skills and competences of the participants so that they become confident, well prepared authentic co-trainers.
