The purpose of the conference
In today’s rapidly evolving labor market, international mobility projects offer students a valuable opportunity to expand their knowledge and gain hands-on experience in their chosen fields of study. The main goal of this event was to empower organizations involved in vocational education and training activities with the tools needed to foster inclusivity for students with disabilities. The project partners involved in VET4All have worked together over the time period that the project has lasted to produce comprehensive guides addressing the process of making mobility projects more inclusive.
The Target Audience
The conference was designed to cater to two main groups: individuals working within the education sector and those engaged in the organization of mobility projects. This included technical schools, educators, mentors, institutions managing internships, and employers participating in the Erasmus+ program. Thanks to the involvement and active engagement of these stakeholders during the event, along with their valuable feedback, it has successfully promoted inclusivity in mobility projects.
This is what went down
During the conference, participants had the chance to learn all the details about how they can use these guides, gaining insights into available strategies, best practices.
