100 additional training places for young people with disabilities
This project in North-Rhine Westphalia offers guided and supported vocational training for young people with disabilities. The aim is to integrate them into the mainstream labour market. The participants successfully learn to take on more than 120 different job roles – from media designer to retailer. The key factor is that their choice of occupation matches their talents and interests. They enter into a training agreement with the local vocational training centres, which provide the young people with a coach and individual tutoring.
Since the 'campaign 100' was launched in January 2007, over 1 000 young people have received the additional opportunity of a traineeship in around 850 partner companies. The number of participants is over 150 per year.
