Competence is the Key
On Thursday April 28th Bright Education for All! INEPS congress introduces one interesting workshop session by Irmeli Lignell and it is themed “The Higher education and new guidance methods in HAMK (Häme University of Applied Sciences”. What´s in it for me?
In this workshop you will get information about the students with most difficulties in finding employment as the starting point, and later apply the methods to a larger student population. The Häme University of Applied Sciences meet this challenge and develop new guidance methods and procedures to support the employment of young people. The ESF- project will promote the employment opportunities of students and graduates with disabilities and special needs by developing holistic guidance services and digital tools, by strengthening the skills of the students and by developing methods to better display those skills to potential employers. The project will cooperate with disability organizations and experience trainers to provide training for the university staff in how to support students with special needs in seeking employment. Job coaches will provide help to students in finding traineeship placements and recent graduates in finding jobs. Special workshops will be founded for students to work in customer projects, to develop new assisting technology digital tools and to create a new type of multimodal portfolio of skills. One interesting assisting technology is BigDAWS, which you can try in workshop.
