For the last 25 years, Supported Employment has helped people achieve their goal: to find paid employment in the open labour market.
In the course of those 25 years, Europe has been shifting more and more towards an inclusive labour market. Supported Employment helps realize the necessary transitions and improve the quality of sustainable working environments.
Looking ahead at the next quarter century, we are inviting employees, employers, job seekers, job coaches and policy makers to share their knowledge, strengths and experience. In doing so, we want to make Supported Employment future-proof, so that in the next 25 years more people can reach their goal and find paid employment in the open labour market.
May we introduce to you: the Dream Team!
“Dreams” is a song by English singer Gabrielle. Released as Gabrielle’s debut single, “Dreams” entered the UK Singles Chart at number 2 in 1993, which was the highest chart entry a debut female solo act had scored in the United Kingdom at that time. Because of the 25th anniversary, EUSE started in the year 1993, the “Dream Team” will be an important group of people, who will assist the board and moderator at this EUSE Conference. We want to encourage and show the stages of transitions and good examples to the visitors that dreams with Supported Employment can come true in the open labour market.
The members of the dream are experienced with telling and asking questions about how to use and implement Supported Employment. From 5 different countries we asked the following people to take part in the Dream team:
Belgium: Charlotte Babalola, rapper Char-B
Netherlands: Nico Blok, social impact striker in the Netherlands
Netherlands: Fini de Pauw, chairman council of handicapped people
Norway: Jan-Kåre Berglid, Senior Advisor at NAV Inclusive Workplace
Norway: Marthe Kathrud, jobcoach NAV
United Kingdom: Tommy Cairns, Employment Engagement Officer
USA: Karen Flippo, Institute for Community Inclusion
The Dream Team is participating at the conference from the critical perspective of the person with a need of supported employment: the end user. Questions are asked and (filmed) interviews take place about what kind of transitions are important, to help and strengthen the persons with a distance to the labour market, towards an inclusive, sustainable working environment. All the visitors can ask the Dream Team questions and give them tips to be used in the ‘after movie’ about 25 years of supported Employment.
On Tuesday morning 28th of May, the entire Dream Team will start on the main stage where each team member is introduced, and our moderator Lucille Werner will ask them to clarify their “Assignment”. The rest of the days, each member will carry out various duties, such as interviewing people, making statements on video, social media and give short impressions about the Conference as a whole. Some of the Dream Team members, will either present a workshop or sing a song, tell the do’s and don’ts and everyone can interview people and analyse several workshops with or without the camera team.
