Conversion Project (2005 - 2008)

(06 Aug 2009)

Funding for a pilot project to Develop and Test a Comprehensive Programme on Conversion From Segregated Settings to Inclusive Employment Services was secured by EASPD, under the Leonardo da Vinci programme, in 2005.

Partners in this project included: EASPD, Belgium; La Fédéderation Médico-Sociale des Vosges (FMS), France; European University College from Brussels (EHSAL), Belgium; National Federation of Voluntary Bodies, Ireland; The Polish Association (PAPMH), Poland; BAG:WfB, Germany.  The project was based on the findings emerging from the previous LABOr project. 

The specific aim of this project was to pilot a comprehensive training programme targeted at managers and front line staff in agencies wishing to convert from sheltered employment to employment on the open labour market of persons with disabilities.

The Conversion Final Conference was held in Strasbourg in September 2007.  More information on the Conversion Project, including a copy of the training materials, is available on the EASPD - Employment for all - website.
