The main task of the competence centre in the Sachsen Epilepsy Centre in Radeberg, under the direction of the “Inclusion Officer”, lies in the implementation of the UN
CRPD. It wants to customise the system and the supply structures to the needs of people with disabilities, in order to provide them with the chance to choose / freely select their livelihood by working in an open, inclusive and accessible work market / work environment.
The competence centre, as the central office for education and the pooling of knowledge, is responsible for regional clients, employment agencies and representatives for disabled persons and foreigners, as well as other institutions. It functions as a coordination and monitoring body, and is a problem solver in all areas: it shows the benefits of the synergy effects of early networking and operates active networking. Client-centred operation and solution strategies, as well as self-evaluation, are an important component as far as quality of results is concerned.
We maintain an overall concept of work and qualification options which takes into account diversity and the capabilities of people with disabilities, and which is geared to the requirements of the general work market. The aim is one of consistent expansion of employment and work options and ensuring a smooth transition to companies in the general work market. Clients should view collaboration (inclusion) as an opportunity as well as an economic success from which both sides will profit equally.
A database allows cooperation partners fast access to the offers and promotes mutual exchange.
In order to achieve a condition of equal opportunities, an inclusive training system is also necessary. The rigid training systems of the schools and the specialist vocational training providers are fractured and adapted to the skills of our clients. This is accompanied by cooperation in the “Education forms the Future” project, which creates certified educational frameworks for employees in disabled persons‘ work areas. The practical implementation and technical advice are mustered in close cooperation with, inter alia, a Federal Armed Forces office (Army Officers‘ Academy in Dresden) as well as the integration company Paso Doble.
The target group of the project includes, inter alia, people from the following institutions:
Students, vocational training participants, employees of shelters for disabled persons, employees in integration companies, migrants and clients with other minority labels.
In the project period, there is planned two annual acquisitions by disabled persons‘ work areas employees with social insurance coverage.
The model project shall be made accessible to an even greater audience via film (in 2016) as well as via a recommended course of action and a flyer (2017).
