Title Developing a support methodology of disabled students allowing to conjugate effectively academic sucess and access to employment
Project Number 2010-1-FR1-LEO05-14481
Project Type Innovationstransfer
This european project Univers'emploi will allow creating University- Enterprise
bridges via a better linkage between general education and professional education.
The principal aim of this project is to develop a innovative support methodology for disabled students to ensure access to employment.
The growing number of students with disabilities in tertiary education has only
a limited impact on their employment rate that has lowered in many EU states over the
last years. Paradoxically many enterprises seeking to hire people with disabilities face
difficulties in finding people with a university degree corresponding to their recruitment
level. This is why it is of crucial importance to develop a pedagogical device for efficiently
assisting people with disabilities in academic success and access to employment.
That is why the “Univers’Emploi” project, led by the INS HEA institute (France), in
collaboration with Savoir et Compétences Formation (France) for the implementation,
and with the partnership of the University of Aarhus (Denmark), Trinity College Dublin
(Ireland) and the University of Rome “Foro Italico” (Italy), is an innovative transfer project
that builds on the strategy developed by the University of Aarhus (Denmark). This
strategy includes support toward and within the employment of disabled students at
the heart of its teaching.
The gain expected from the implementation at the European
level is found in the complementarity of a successful Danish experiment enriched by
the French, Italian and Irish models.
The aim of this project, in each partner country, is to create a methodological guide
and tools helping Universities to include the employment prospects of people with
disabilities and to develop strategies allowing students to reconcile learning, employment
and social life. As for enterprises, this project will allow creating University- Enterprise
bridges via a better linkage between general education and professional education. To
achieve these goals, this project will compare the Aarhus model with the practices
of other partner countries and thus build a scalable and transferable methodology
according to national contexts from an experiment with 20 students per country that
mobilizes actors in the University, the world of business and, if necessary, the sector
of vocational rehabilitation. The main products of this project will be: a methodological
guide for volunteering Universities; training sessions for their staff involved; a pedagogical
pack at the disposal of the organisations of enterprises that support students with
disabilities; and a spreading out of documents and of the methodology.
