"Short term training" in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria is underway! Our R(AE)L INCLUSION, ERASMUS+ is heating up!
A total of 62 unemployed persons with disabilities actively participated in the project as of June, 2023. In the continuation of the project, we invite other unemployed people with disabilities to join the project. The plan is to continue activities in the counties of Istria and Primorsko-goranska County. By the end of the project, we will include at least 57 more persons with disabilities.
The activities carried out are in the field of empowerment for work – training of socio-emotional skills necessary for work in the tourism and hospitality sector, professional guidance of PWDs for work in the tourism and hospitality sector, and individual career counseling of PWDs for work in the tourism and hospitality sector.
The number of unemployed persons with disabilities who completed education / training for jobs in digital marketing in tourism is 10. The education was conducted online. Given that the participants are from different parts of Istria, online training was organized for the participants, so that they could devote themselves to the training from the comfort of their homes.
The result of the project is a developed occupational standard. The occupational standard has been prepared and referred to the procedure, on the occupational standard proposal form, to the competent ministry. The developed standard is for the occupation Agent for Internet sales of tourist products.
The goal was also to improve formal training programs for persons with disabilities to acquire competencies for work in the tourism and hospitality sector. For this purpose, a “Proposal form for an educational program for adult education” was created for an already existing training program for digital marketing, the quality of which is improved with content from the field of tourism characteristics and tourism products. Teaching materials – scripts – were created.
6 experts participated in the creation of the program and empowerment activities. Likewise, 6 experts in the field of training adults in tourism were trained in the field of providing social services.
Among the aforementioned activities, the DIP developed training programs for lecturers and mentors for working with persons with disabilities. Dante got involved with its lecturers. An employee from the partner organization, “Polidor”, was a mentor during the practical part of the training for PWDs.
The goal is to include another 50 persons with disabilities by the end of the project. The plan is to include persons with disabilities from Poreč, the Center for Inclusion and Community Services from branches in Istria, as well as persons with disabilities from the Primorsko-goranska County.
Likewise, a digital platform for finding and offering jobs in tourism, on the open labor market, and offers for training and education for adults with disabilities is also being finalized.
As part of the training plan for employers in tourism, we also held a lecture and a round table for employers from the PWD employment sector, at the Promohotel fair https://dip.hr/esf-edukosi-turizam-poziv-za-poslodavce-22-2-2023- u-1300-porec/.
