The University of Szeged organizes training for the universities of the EUGLOH association on the labour market success of students with disabilities, disadvantaged and special educational needs.
The main aim of the 20 hours training workshop is to reinforce individual skills of the disadvantaged student population (namely, with disability and with special educational needs) from all of the EUGLOH partner universities. It intends to be an initiative dedicated to the employability and social inclusion of the disadvantaged student population, open to all students.
The training provides perspectives on a smoother social inclusion and adaptation to the labour market of disadvantaged populations. The planned activities will be developed according to identified needs in professional skills and legal background by the training experts team. The team members have mixed background: university teachers (deaf) and student with disadvantages (wheelchair), University counselling centre for the support of disadvantaged students, a lecturer from the Christian Roma College and a representative (blind person) from labour market (company which hires mainly disabled persons).
The topics are varied, such as the search of integration in higher education and later into the labour market, the importance of networking, UN and EU values and identity, good practices.
With this online training, we would like to give insight into everyday difficulties of disadvantaged students at the university and of disadvantaged people at the workplace. By sharing good practices, the training will be a platform of exchanging ideas and of disability awareness. Furthermore, the legal framework of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) will be outlined by a former member of CRPD Committee.
Lecturers themselves are also affected through their disability or occupation.
