KA2 – Cooperation and Innovation for Good Practices Home #top



The TIME@Net project aims at promoting Social and Work Inclusion, Active Citizenship and Learning among a target group at high risk of social exclusion: young people intellectual disabilities.

During the implementation phase, the project will organise five different main activities, interconnected and progressive, in order to develop at EU level a new model and innovative practices for the work inclusion for young people with intellectual disabilities.

The implementation phase of the TIME@Net project will start with a transnational analysis and comparison of the best practices in the frame of the work inclusion addressed to a specific target: young people with intellectual disabilities. The activity has three general objectives:

The activity therefore will consist of two related actions:

The second activity organized within the project concerns the development of the project Guidelines. The researcher groups identified in Activity 1 and enriched with new experts will develop two procedures, together included in the Guidelines (O2):

The activity will be carried out through the following steps:

The third project activity will be the development of the Handbook for the TIME@Net pilot, a detailed manual for the realization of a course to train key professionals in work inclusion. The course will supply tools and will support the acquisition of competencies to efficiently work with young people with intellectual disabilities and help them to develop specific and key competencies in order to:

The main steps are:

During the next activity, the fourth one, the TIME@Net pilot course will be realized involving 10 professionals directly working inclusion paths for young people with intellectual disabilities. This activity in turn includes three steps:

  1. Selection of professionals - 2 persons from each partner country within those working within the services for training and work inclusion.
  2. Implementation of the pilot course.
  3. Evaluation of results through an analysis of the training agreement cards given to participants and trainees.

The last activity concerns the development of TIME@Net Work Inclusion Plans, through the following steps:

  1. Development of the working group: each participant trained during the pilot course will identify and involve different professionals to participate in equipe. Personnel working in training agency and educational services, especially those involved in the research activity, will form the working group.
  2. Selection and detection of the local context opportunities: each working group will select and contact the most relevant companies, providing the best opportunities for the final target.
  3. Development of interventions plans and collection of useful recommendations. Each working group will develop a complete training and work inclusion plan targeted to a group of 10 young people with intellectual disabilities, using the model produced in the O2-A1 and thanks to the collaboration of the representatives of the employing companies.
  4. Verification of the results.
