Name of the project: INCLUDE3
Funding programme: KA220-VET – Cooperation partnerships in vocational education and training http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/.
In 2021 the European Parliament called for research on sheltered workshops to support compliance with EU and United
Nations inclusion targets. Include³ will, in an inclusive and co-productive process, develop resources and a curriculum to
create individual pathways for people with intellectual disabilities from targeted vocational and educational training into
sustainable employment and decent work, thereby contributing to inclusion by linking sheltered VET more strongly to labour
Based on a curriculum for the Include³-method, career guidance professionals working in or for sheltered workshops will
engage in seminars with people with intellectual disabilities, employers and the workshop’s vocational education and
training specialists. The aim is to personalise vocational training so that a tight fit with labour market needs is achieved.
Piloting and evaluation of the seminars will ensure that the method can be established sustainably in different European
Include³ will result in the development of a process to harmonise sheltered vocational education and training with individual
needs, capabilities and aspirations of people with intellectual disabilities and with labour market opportunities. A curriculum
and resources available through a fully accessible web portal will ensure the applicability and dissemination of this process,
so that vocatioal training sheltered workshops can better contribute to the target of labour market inclusion.
