Integration in the labour market as an element of value
The importance of training for disable people
Good education is very important indicator to receive a job, especially the professional or vocational education, and it is even more important among disable people that are socially disadvantaged group. We cannot talk about work insertion without talking about training. To go to work you have to feel adult and, working, you keep on building your adult identity.
It is necessary to build a course, before and during the work experience, helping young disabled people to feel and behave like adults, to learn to work and then to perform a specific task.
Companies need to have good knowledge of government anti-discrimination, access and equity, and equal employment opportunities policies and practices to ensure individuals rights are not violated or negated.
An opportunity for everybody
However, companies and employers need more information and awareness on the employment of disabled although
there are guidance and training material available for the employers and the work community to encounter and support an employee with disabilities.
Diversity in the work community enriches the whole organization.
Individuals from diverse backgrounds can offer a selection of different talents, skills and experiences, that may be of benefit
to the organisation and their work performance. It is a win-win situation for both the employer and the disabled employee.
