The project ENEVA proposes a thematic action in the field of LLL initiatives toward persons with disabilities. It provides a valorisation of the results achieved in the framework of EU LLL programmes (Leonardo da Vinci, Socrates) by means of a strategy aimed to contact most important stakeholders involved in the integration processes at regional/national and European level. This strategy consists in promoting the results about the specific issue organising a kind of “logical framework” to help researchers as well as decision makers to analyse and compare solutions, experiences, methods and proposals.

Basically this work will be accessible via a devoted portal, conceived as a support service linked to the Commission databases: the aim is to gather well documented results (original documents, final reports..) in order to let them explored and exploited by the stakeholders. The stakeholders (main target group of this project) are intended in a largest meaning of this term: cause the innovation presented by each project would influence in a wide sense the social relationships around the person with disability, his/her expectations, the quality of the services and all the type of “barriers” each person is facing to participate to the society.

A European (Valorisation) Conference entitled “A Job Environment for All” will take place on 25 September, 2009 in Brussels, Belgium. A whole range of projects will present its outcomes, most in direct relationship to the increased employability of people with disabilities. The conference will take place at POLIS, Rue du Trône 98, in Brussels (easily reachable via the metro – station “Troon / Trône”) from 9.30 till 14.30. It is organised with the financial support of the Leonardo da Vinci programme of the EC.

QATRAIN 2 aims to enable students with disabilities to participate more fully in Vocational Education and Training (VET) at post 16 level. The project will produce a web resource that will assist teachers/trainers and quality assurance staff to develop a more inclusive approach to the design of teaching, learning and assessment strategies. In turn, this will enable students with disabilities to participate more fully in Vocational Education and Training.

For the purposes of the project, Vocational Education and Training (VET) is any form of initial education, training or apprenticeship which contributes to the achievement of a vocational qualification, recognised by the competent authorities in each partner country, and that leads to employability. VET students are those who have completed compulsory education and are under 25 years old.

The web resource will be undergoing a period of testing and review in the coming months and will go live in May 2009.
