Project Goal is to foster employability and inclusion of people with fewer opportunities (physically disabled and socially disadvantaged) and facilitate their transition to the labour market through an inclusive and diversity sensitive Career Development Model that will be developed in a public-private partnership and fueled by international exchange of experience.
Project Output: Career Development Model containing of 2 levels:
- VPAC – Vocational Potential Assessment Center
- EDC – Elevator Development Center
Vocational Potential Assessment Center (VPAC) is planned to be a pilot diversity-sensitive assessment center – a set of assessment methods and activities to assess candidates and/or in such a manner that being different does not turn into a disadvantage, and so that diversity and new perspectives can be recognized and appreciated as a valuable potential to the organization. The newly designed and adopted VPAC model will serve as a couching tool which will navigate the participating candidates upon their individual performance results. They will be offered various career pathways either within the involved IT company, its development programs or alternatively through other project partners (CF) and associated partners (Labor Office).
The Elevator Development Center (EDC) is a further step of the career development model. It builds on the VPAC performance results of the participants. Its role is to establish specific development measures for the participants to meet the future career requirements. It will be used for mapping the competencies and talents of the participants and defining their future development plans. The EDC is planned to develop 3 in-company training programmes focused on an intensive (6 months) preparation for 3 work positions within the IT sector which will respect specific needs of employees with disabilities. The selected participants will be offered to take the developed programmes and enroll in the 6 months in-company training.
