InWork addresses the role of the university within its reference region as a driver for an inclusive culture, by developing and testing a model of intervention focused on relations between inside and outside the university, and engaging people involved. The project adopts the work-integrated learning method, which includes work-based learning (internships and traineeships), to support people with special needs to undertaken meaningful learning experiences with the world of work.
InWork works inside and outside the university, by strengthening the links with the place of the higher education institutions, through an interlocked set of activities which includes research, stakeholder engagement, training for academic and support staff, learning activities with companies, internships and traineeships, events.
The results expected from the project are:
– Report on the needs and resources for youths with special needs
