On the 27th June the RDI department of the “MARGARITA” Vocational Training Center participated in the European Social Fund conference: "Bringing the long-term unemployed back into work”. During the conference MARGARITA had the opportunity to present the state of play in Greece as well as its model on supported employment and to learn other countries' best practices for improving the lives of people with disabilities.
The conference gathered EU and national actors – including Public Employment Services, ESF Managing Authorities, civil society and social partners. During the conference the participants had the chance to discuss effective policy to bring the long-term unemployed back into work.
MARGARITA’s model was selected as one of the most effective vocational training method for people with intellectual disabilities based on in vivo activities. To find out more about their practice, watch their video here.
