The project is aimed at severely disabled unemployed women and men or those with equal status.
The target group includes:
1) Older severely disabled unemployed people between the ages of 45 and 55 to maintain their ability to work
2) Older severely disabled unemployed people from 55 until retirement to prevent poverty in old age
3) Long-term unemployed severely disabled people
The project is not aimed at rehabilitants.
The aim of the project is the permanent integration of severely disabled people through on-the-job training and qualification in the workplace in Thuringian commercial enterprises with the aim of taking them on in employment subject to social insurance contributions. In this way, the project is intended to contribute to improving the employment situation and securing the employability of severely disabled people.
Until now, companies have always given preference to the most suitable applicant when filling vacancies. BWTW has also often proceeded in this way in its previous integration projects. In this project, this starting point is to be reversed. The person with his or her abilities is to be the starting point for defining a workplace that corresponds to his or her capabilities but also to the needs of the company. Together with both, BWTW wants to develop the appropriate workplace.
There is the possibility of an ongoing entry up to one year before the end of the project. The individual participant can stay for up to 12 months.
Up to 25 participants can be accepted per year, distributed among the BWTW locations in Erfurt, Arnstadt, Sömmerda and Ilmenau. A total capacity of 50 places is available for participants over the entire period.
The project is divided into 2 phases:
Phase 1: Entry phase 6 to 10 weeks, depending on individual needs, with aptitude and performance diagnostics, career coaching, career planning, updating job applications, specialist training and initial company testing for up to two weeks
Phase 2: Company phase / learning location company up to 46 weeks with the aim of creating and setting up a workplace, including induction and qualification. Special modules, e.g. special certificates, attestations or topics (conceivable, among others, forklift license, CAD
training, accounting courses, business administration courses, etc.
). Courses, special IT
) that cannot be covered by the company are carried out in cooperation with other training providers. For this purpose, the participants are released by the company.
In principle, all participants are expected to attend full-time. In individual cases, part-time participation is also possible, depending on the individual's ability to work under pressure and in consultation with the mediator. Of course, individual working time possibilities (TZ from 3 h/day up to VZ) are taken into account.
Within the framework of the project, BWTW will work with an inclusion team. A team consisting of integration facilitator, social pedagogue, specialist lecturer, psychologist and company instructors.
In addition, the BWTW provides extensive support services for the companies. They are made aware of the need to hire people with disabilities as part of their skilled labor requirements and are supported in their integration. There will no longer often be the right applicant for a job. But it is conceivable to create the right position for the interesting applicant or to design it in such a way that companies and future employees are brought together. And this especially for people with handicap.
This is done through individual support in the company, mentor training for the company managers, support in technical change processes and through the involvement of the project network
. The focus should be on the individual combination of person and task, taking into account the individuality and the company requirements.
