Running from 2013 to 2015, the main goal of the JoTraDi (Job Trainers for people with intellectual Disabilities and Autism Spectrum Disorders) project was to provide training for teachers, educators, trainers and tutors to foster the development of better employment conditions for people with disabilities.
JoTraDi included a job placement programme to provide people with disabilities with a concrete work experience, and eventually, to employ them in a company. Those who follow the programme implemented by JoTraDi will become ‘Job Trainers’, and will be able to support the inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities and autistic people in the open labour market in Europe.
The JoTraDi project was funded by the European Commission, under the Lifelong Learning Programme.
About the Lifelong Learning Programme
The Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP) was designed to enable people, at any stage of their life, to take part in stimulating learning experiences, as well as developing education and training across Europe. With a budget of nearly €7 billion, the programme ran from 2007 to 2013, and funded a range of exchanges, study visits and networking activities. The activities of the LLP programme continued under the Erasmus+ programme from 2014 to 2020.
