EUSE Toolkit for Diversity

The EUSE Toolkit for Diversity Project stems from a previous a previous Leonardo da Vinci Partnership Project, EUSE Supported Employment Toolkit (lead partner Dundee City Council) which highlighted a need to develop and adapt the Toolkit for people from other disadvantaged situations. The EUSE Toolkit for Diversity will resolve this limitation by addressing the gaps in learning materials for other disadvantaged groups and adding value to existing resources in terms of regional applicability and providing a consistent approach to delivery of the Supported Employment model. The aim of the project is to transfer and adapt the EUSE Supported Employment Toolkit for four cluster group regions of Europe, for people from a disadvantaged situation (i.e. ex-offenders, young people not in education, employment and training and people recovering from substance abuse) other than people with disabilities.

European Supported Employment Toolkit

The European Union of Supported Employment developed a Partnership consisting of managers and professionals who represent national, regional and local Supported Employment service providers across Europe. The partners were already linked through their involvement with the European Union of Supported Employment and all the partners are currently delivering some form of vocational training or Supported Employment service either through their role as a local or regional organisation or through their national organisation for Supported Employment The Partnership’s aim was to produce a European Supported Employment Toolkit. This toolkit consists of a range of Position Papers and How to Guides and has been designed to increase the knowledge and skills of professionals responsible for the delivery of Supported Employment services. The toolkit is primarily aimed at service providers for use in their staff development programmes.
