Result Country report reviews the literature, country reports and statistics about school-to-work transition to support the employment of young disabled people and measures to support disabled people in obtaining employment in different EU countries, especially in the partner countries (Turkey, France, Slovenia and Austria). Because of the fact that employment rates for disabled people in Europe are closely associated with level of qualification, this report analyzed the education policies in Europe. We analyzed the barriers which hinder disabled youths to full and effectively participate in education and employment on an equal basis with other citizens. Then we discussed the recommendations in terms of best practices (that are used in EU countries) to diminish and or overcome such barriers. Finally, measures taken in EU countries to support disabled people in obtaining employment are described in terms of policies for employer organisations, anti-discrimination disability legislation, disability benefits and training programmes.
