💭 The handicap of deafness is not in the ear; it is in the mind 💭- Marlee Matlin
🗓️ Between the 20th – 21st of February the Erasmus+ KA2 VET project 3D4DEAF: Promoting digital transformation and social innovation in VET for better access of deaf students to the labour market, kick-off meeting took place in Turin, Italy.
👩💼 3D4DEAF aims to promote social inclusion and improve the outreach to people with fewer opportunities focusing on people with deafness/hearing impairments aged 15-21, emphasising girls. ‘Inclusion Europe’ in European Commission (EC), states that due to Covid-19, people with disabilities have been tremendously affected by numerous challenges, including discrimination in the labour market.
🔇The main objective is to develop a Training programme for VET teachers and school students with deafness or hearing impairments to upgrade their 3D, coding, digital and social entrepreneurial skills to meet the needs of the digital labour market and foster equal opportunities.
During the meeting, the project overview was presented along with all of the work packages to be developed and the initial tasks and deadlines have been assigned.
🙏A big thank you to our host Istituto dei Sordi di Torino (IT), our coordinator Spoleczna Akademia Nauk (PL), as well as our other partners DLearn (IT), Pitagoras (PL), IDEC (GR) and Instituto Hispano Americano de la Palabra (ES) for their excellent collaboration.
