To effectively adapt to the digitalisation of various aspects of life, such as work, social interactions, and communication, individuals with disabilities require appropriate and specialised training.
The prevailing trend of digitising content frequently results in the creation of incomplete, unverified, and inaccessible materials, making it difficult for people with disabilities to transition towards self-reliance and independent living.
In our view, it is crucial to prioritise the training of professionals who assist individuals with disabilities in their journey towards autonomy and independent living, as this forms the foundation for the overall process.
The SKILLS project aims to facilitate the training of professionals in the disability sector, enabling them to effectively train individuals with disabilities and transfer essential e-skills for independence and employment search. This emphasis on empowering individuals with disabilities through e-skills training and fostering their autonomy sets the project apart and drives its innovative approach.
