Main activities and results
The project aims to develop an innovative model for transforming user expertise into acknowledged skills for the labour market. The project team will create robust methods for converting lived experiences into measurable, transferable and validated areas of expertise, with a particular focus on the topic of web accessibility.
In order to achieve this objective, the project team will identify best practices, develop a methodological toolkit and identify typologies of user expertise. They will also develop a model course in web accessibility that is aimed at persons with disabilities. The overarching objective is to foster inclusion and opportunity for persons with disabilities through the provision of an innovative framework for educational programmes that draws upon personal skills and experiences. The framework will be developed so that it can be adapted to various societal, cultural and linguistic contexts.
These activities and results will be developed according to a co-creation methodology. The project partners will contribute to all activities and learn from each other in the process, and each activity will build on the results of previous activities. In addition, key target audiences – persons with disabilities, Vocational Education and Training (VET) providers and public sector bodies – will be actively involved.
