Training in Palermo, Italy

The short-term training event for VET trainers took place in Palermo (Italy) from May 2 to 6, 2022, hosted by our partner CESIE, and addressed several themes concerning recruiting and support of individuals with ASD in search of work. The aim was to introduce participants with the training content, the activities and the format of the Opportunities4Autism Training package and thus make them able to efficiently train employers and managers during the pilot testing phase.

Each session of the training event was led by partners’ experts which shared knowledge and best practices. Knowledge transfer was achieved mainly through front-end teaching and practical exercises and group works were conducted in order to encourage an inductive approach. Participants could share their ideas and knowledge and discussed on how to deliver the training in the future.
