Training as Vehicle to Employment: Newsletter, December 2007

Dear Reader

Welcome to the 5th common newsletter to the EU wide project ‘Training as Vehicle to Employment’ (TVE).

This project is a two year EU wide project focusing on national government agencies’ traineeships. There are two basic aims:

  1. To promote training positions in the public sector and to open them to persons with disabilities.
  2. To list the training positions that disabled persons can apply

This project is being run in Ireland, Latvia, Germany, Finland, Greece, Spain, Sweden, Poland and Bulgaria. You can find up-to-date information from the international website http://www.independentliving.org/training

Project Update

The project is at its very last weeks and ends officially the 31st of December 2007. But you will hear more from us during the first quarter of 2008. The publication “Make It Work” will be distributed during January 2008 in our national networks and we will continue sending out newsletter with project updates in January and February 2008.

If you are interested in receiving a copy of the booklet please contact Nicoletta Zoannos.

Remember to check the results web page!

Have a look at http://www.independentliving.org/training/accessibility-govt-training-en.html where we list training opportunities for people with disabilities at government agencies in the project’s participating countries.

You will also be able to make smaller comparisons between the participating countries state agencies.

The next Training as Vehicle to Employment Newsletter will be distributed in January 2008.


We also would like to take the opportunity to wish you happy holidays and a happy new year!
