Marketing Text PEDVA.net - Portal of European Disabled Virtual Assistants brings disabled people and employers together. A new gateway for home based training and employment.
Summary The IT&E - Integrated Training & Employment pilot project aims combined vocational training and e-employment of technical and computer oriented disabled people with mobility limitation. The product PEDVA.net serves to this need.
Description Due to booming technology and IT phenomena, distant learning and e-employment are growing in an exponential manner. This field requires optimum production rate, which is combination of time and cost. The parameter is being the level of depth of the output detail. Considering the current globalisation and market conditions and resulting competition in almost all different fields of service sectors; drafting, detailing and graphics service sectors are also based on personal time, knowledge and effort. Another most Important criterion of these fields is that the worker is not necessarily be moved to job site or employee’s premises. Hence, these fields are very well suitable for “home based employment”. Although it looks that the unemployment rate among the disabled is not higher than that for the non-disabled, this is possibly because of the ‘discouraged worker’ effect, which means many disabled persons know or believe that they are very unlikely to get a job, so that they do not even attempt to find one and are therefore classified as inactive although they have a work potential. The philosopy of this project is the innovation and verification of employment channels where someone can talk about “an advantage of being disabled in this unique virtual business channel(s)”
