NWe would like to celebrate the successful successful project implementation - the smooth cooperation between the project partners and the products produced:

The project has created a virtual platform where people with disabilities have the opportunity to showcase their talents, abilities and products.


  • Visitors of the platform have the opportunity to purchase the products or otherwise support talented people with disabilities.

  • A comprehensive methodology has also been developed to assess individual needs, based on which training programmes have been developed for each user of the platform.

  • Training has been organized for a team of mentors who continue to work with the project participants, providing information and familiarizing them with the use of the platform.

2021 The Erasmus + project “Skillability: Social inclusion and employability for people with disability” 2020-1-NL01-KA204-064575 took place in Velenje, Slovenia on 13 – 17 December.

During the training, prospective mentors were introduced to the Skills Assessment and Personal Progress Planning Methodology, which consisted of:

Communication guide for mentors

Motivation assessment

Soft and specific skills assessment

Progress planning

These trainings provided an opportunity to deepen the theoretical knowledge and to test in practice the tasks that will be used in working with the target group.

The training participants were also introduced to the project's remote platform, which was created to facilitate the training process, communication with the project participants and adapted for mentors to share their experiences with each other.

During the meeting, partners discussed about the successful work and planned further activities for the project development.

Giving the same opportunities to all those who want to contribute to society and their own lives as protagonists through work. This is what we intend to do with the Skillability platform. So that everyone can say "I am part of this".

The press is known as 'the fourth power', a definition now extended to all forms of communication... and so also to sign language ;)
