Handi'Cap sur l'Europe
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

In 2015, a work experience or an internship abroad are valuable as a matter of fact. Therefore, the access to European mobility is limited to some people, including disable people. They have to cope with physical, psychological or even societal obstacles. For those persons, besides the access to mobility programmes, this is the access to employment which is also a difficulty : around 21% of people with disabilities are unemployed today, that is to say more than the double of the percentage of working aged people. The access to training is also limited : among the unemployed disabled people, 80% don’t have the baccalaureate level and only 9,8% have an access to regional training programmes in Aquitaine in 2013. The project “Handi’cap sur l’Europe” has its roots in this context and in a shared determination to : - Facilitate the access to European mobility for disabled trainees in a vocational training and promote their inclusion on the labour market - Allow professionals providing support to disabled people to discover the best practices of European counterparts and secure the mobility paths proposed to their trainees. Led by a consortium, this project is the fruit of a collaboration between organizations in charge of the vocational training for disabled people - Institut Don Bosco (IDB) and CRP de la Tour de Gassies – and a coordinator experienced in mobility projects and European projects management –Cap Ulysse. This project will allow : 1) 52 vocational mobilities for disabled trainees in a vocational training from the 3 consortium members through work placements in company from 2 to 8 weeks in Germany, Spain and the UK. 2) 23 training mobilities for staff from the 3 consortium members from 4 to 6 days in Germany, Spain and the UK. The positions of those employees are representative of the multidisciplinary inherent in the success of this project : - experts in the European projects management - trainers and teachers - social workers - counsellors in charge of social and work inclusion - medical/medical-social teams (psychologues, psychiatrists, doctors, neuropsychologist, ergonomist, social assistant) In a general and long-term way, we consider that this project will contribute in the implementation of the politics defined by the authorities on a local level (cf. Pacte Territorial 2015-2017 from the Conseil Général de Gironde), regional level (cf. regional plan promoting training for disabled persons), on a national level (cf. law of the Government from the 01/02/2015 about equal rights and opportunities, participation and citizenship for disabled people) and international level (cf. directive 2000/78/CE from the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights in 2000). The objectives are : - Impact the vision of the companies and employees towards disabled people - Boost the employment rate of disabled people in a mainstream environment. At the level of the consortium members, the challenge is to : - Develop European and global strategies of openness, look for innovative practices toward beneficiaries. - Develop reciprocity between counterparts organizations through the sending and receiving of learners and professionals. - Develop the quality of the support for disabled people through the employees training to new practices and their skills development. -Boost reciprocity on the incoming and outgoing mobilities -Increase quality in the support of disabled people by improving the training of the concerned staff - Underline the values of the consortium member and contribute to the personal development of disable people and supporting staff by giving them an equal access to opportunities. At the level of the staff of the consortium results to achieved are -Enlarge practices by discovering new approaches/techniques allowing to improve the quality of the work done or to put in question and compare daily practices with different approaches and methodologies. -Multiplicate the access to mobility : every staff who did a training mobility will feel more comfortable to promote mobility among trainees and staff colleagues. - Give a value to the staff and reinforce their motivation and their team abilities. - Extend local and european staff network Finally at the level of the trainees, the aim is about: -Developing soft and vocational skills, increasing challenge abilities, autonomy, initiative, distance towards disability, self confidence and confidence. Those soft skills required by the labour market. - Giving value to each experience in order to expand the impact of mobilities to other beneficiaries.
