Short description

Subject of the project

The performance potential of many young disabled people is still underestimated. Like non-disabled young people, they can complete vocational training schemes successfully if the find suitable framework conditions at their workplaces.

The organisation UnternehmensForum (company forum) e.V. has initiated a project within which 40 additional vocational training positions in various vocations have been provided to allow disabled young people to gain access to a two-tier vocational training.

Aims of the project

The aim is to provide vocational training courses for 20 disabled trainees, which they will start jointly with non-disabled trainees in 2013 or 2014.

The course of vocational training will give these disabled young people the opportunity to prove their skills and their ability to handle the workload. This will increase their change of being taken over into regular employment by the vocational trainers at the PEI or by other employers.

A vocational training course is the key to later chances on the job market. The special potential of young people with disabilities, but also the necessity for support and special furthering are recognised at an early stage in this project, thus opening perspectives for young disabled people on the job market.


  • Inclusion of disabled trainees in the institutions of the project partners.
  • Organizing seminars, conferences, and other events within the network of the project partners.
  • Public relations: Presentation of the project at various conferences in industry, politics, and public life.
