Diversifying career paths

The project aims to lower the threshold and creating new options for applying and enrolling to college and university studies.

Without these project procedures, the focus group participants would be unlikely to advance to college/university paths.

The project utilizes art-oriented methods which can be used to strengthen participation and interaction and learn new skills that can be transferred to working life.


The project aims are:
1. To enhance the focus group’s equality regarding education and employment.

2. To support and increase the target organizations’ knowledge regarding employment challenges of incapacitated persons and immigrants.

3. To strengthen networking, co-operation and service provision. The goal is that the knowledge regarding available services reaches all those in need, and thus the gathered expertise helps identify the target group’s needs more comprehensively and guiding the target group towards needed services.
