We shared what we learned on the training course in Maribor, Slovenia.
‘We Are At Work Too’ is dedicated to children with intellectual disabilities, their families, and educators.
This project studied the relationship between families, students, educators, and employers. The aims are to offer digital and innovative tools to guarantee children with intellectual disabilities greater autonomy and personal success.
On 17th Jan 2022, we held an online activity to present the project, the intellectual outputs and to gather feedback on the resources created.
The attendees were made up of teachers working in a range of SEN (Special Educational Needs) schools from all over the UK.
There were 4 research and training modules developed as part of this project.
The aims of this module were to identify the needs of families and teachers regarding special education vocational training in different countries. This research was used as a basis for the following three modules.
We observed that children with disabilities’ learning capacity and self-esteem increase with their parent’s participation in their education programs. Therefore, the aims of this module are to educate parents of children with disabilities.
This module aims to provide the students with useful competencies in order to widen their employment prospects and strengthen their professional success.
This module is a summary of the resources, in a more digestible format and includes activities for trainers to use when teaching the modules.
This includes the purpose, statistics, results, and the evaluation report of the research with advice on how to use the Family Education Programme and the Supporting Vocational Education Modules
All the resources that were presented in the session are accessible on the We Are At Work Too website, FREE to download.
You can also access all the resources and teaching materials on our online platform.
