People with disabilities between the ages of 16 and 30 have an even lower level of education than non-disabled young people of the same age.
Approximately 40% of the young disabled population say they have felt discriminated against in the last 12 months in education, training or work.
The results established by the Erasmus + project (2018-2-ES02-KA347-011924) show that young people often face discrimination in educational, training or work environments.
This discrimination is always linked to the early school leaving of these young people.
This project aims to exchange good practices between our partner countries in order to produce a summary document of findings that can be disseminated and useful for employment or education professionals who advise, support and assist these young people. The aim is to produce findings that raise awareness of the benefits of diversity, inclusion and tolerance and inclusion of young people with disabilities. This programme will include strategies and dissemination tools to combat and eliminate prejudice and stereotypes against disability among non-disabled young people.
This will be made possible primarily through a programme that uses an innovative approach of cooperation between complementary organisations coming from different fields, but sharing common interests, values and objectives.
The main content of this innovative programme will be based on:
- Prejudices and stereotypes that determine discrimination,
- The elements of language that accompany these biases
