VET4ALL to enhance Social Inclusion in work-based learning.

The objectives of the project VET4ALL (Professional Development Of Vet Tutors And Trainers To Enhance Social Inclusion In Work-Based Learning), in which EfVET is a partner, are focused on the training of teachers, staff and in-company mentors working with students with disabilities and special needs to make their WBL experiences more fruitful and oriented to their transition from school to work.

In details VET4ALL aims at:

• developing flexible pathways which connect the VET formal school curriculum to Work Based Learning for students with disabilities and special needs;

• fostering the implementation of ECVET principles and tools and developing an innovative approach to Mobility in order to facilitate access for students with disabilities and special needs;

• increasing the possibility for students with disabilities and special needs to participate in an EU Mobility Experience;

• supporting enterprise mentors and staff during the WBL experience.

VET4ALL expected results are the following:

• IO1 – VET4ALL Didactical Guidelines for training VET Staff working with students with disabilities and special needs;

• IO2 – VET4ALL Training Curriculum for VET Staff working with students with disabilities and special needs in WBL experiences;

• IO3 – VET4ALL In-company Mentors Vademecum – a very practical handbook to be distributed to Mentors in order to support students with disabilities and special needs throughout their internship experiences;

• IO4 – VET4ALL Mobility Vademecum for accompanying persons. The aim of this vademecum is to provide support to the accompanying persons during mobility experiences and to the EU hosting enterprises.
