Welcome to VOCA extended Project Portal

 

Disabled people are almost twice as likely to be inactive in comparison to non-disabled people in Europe. Furthermore, even if they are employed, disabled persons face much harder situations in the labour market than persons without disabilities. Moreover, as a general point of view, in reality, physically disabled person requires more income than an able-bodied person to achieve the same living standard.

 

Based on these conditions, VOCA extended Project developed a model to train people with physical disabilities to be mentors, who will consequently support (home based) employability of people with physical disabilities, by means of e-mentoring. The model can open the new channel for home based virtual job opportunities for people with disabilities, as well as providing the basement to enable disabled individuals to break through often barriers blocking their career success despite of their existing skills and abilities.

 

We hope that as a result of the project a lot of Europeans with physical disabilities will be able to enter the virtual job markets from homes.

VOCA extended e-Training Program

 

Program has been designed to understand e-mentoring activity.  Due to physical disabilities, potential mentors may not have had the opportunity or the mobility to obtain proper job training. For this reason online training may be an opportunity for people with physical disabilities. This program aims to create and conduct a pilot course that offers a comprehensive curriculum and demonstrates the applicability of the method and its benefits.
