Target groups

The main target group is composed of youths with learning difficulties through to slight mental disabilities that can be seen in vocational/occupational preparation or in vocational training. These youths can – partly after intensive vocational preparation – acquire professions with reduced, theoretical requirements.

The second target group consists of teaching staff and professionals with backgrounds in occupational rehabilitation and vocational education, trainees in companies as well as teachers and school social workers in vocational schools.

The professionals (educators, teaching staff, trainers, social education workers, therapists) involved in the training should know more about the importance of social-emotional competences and have instruments in place to diagnose these in a sensitive manner and provide the appropriate support.
