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.
What’s in it for you?
We are offering you knowledge and expertise, a place to network and great fun.
As a job seeker or employee, network or branch organisation for employees, you are the experienced expert. We encourage you to get involved in our workshops and to share your knowledge and experience. This will allow you to have a direct impact on policy making.
- As a job coach, you will gain new insights into job seekers’ perspectives and possibilities, through the exchange of experiences and good practices. We offer short training sessions in new tools and methods that create disability confidence.
- As an employer, you create job opportunities for job seekers and employees. We can help your company find those employees that best suit your vacancies. Furthermore, you will get the chance to meet other employers who have successfully implemented Supported Employment methods and way of thinking.
- As a policy maker, you are given the chance to fine-tune and improve your way of taking up responsibility with regard to integration and employment. You will meet stakeholders, experienced experts and entrepreneurs from both the profit and non-profit sectors, and will be sharing experience and good practises with other countries. We make sure you can stay ahead of the latest developments and state-of-the-art research.
