Tailored for Inclusion: Development of VET Courses in the HOST Project
In the HOST project, the development of VET courses for hospitality managers and HR experts is making steady progress. The next exciting step in the project is the creation of six training modules aimed at enhancing knowledge and skills for these professionals regarding staff with Autism and showcasing the opportunities that come with including staff with Autism in the workforce. This process has just begun.
The modules in the course play a crucial role in building a comprehensive understanding of autism and the autism spectrum. This is essential to identify fundamental needs and cultivate understanding of staff with Autism. The course also aims to develop skills for motivating and communicating effectively. Participants are trained in planning and leading organizational changes that may involve staff with Autism in the process. Finally, the course focuses on guiding participants in supporting employees with autism throughout the entire employment process.
These modules will be created by drawing on the expertise of our partners in their specific areas of competence. We aim to create a flexible learning system that can adapt to both digital and physical learning environments, reaching far and wide to make a positive difference in workplaces across Europe. The HOST project is steadfast in creating a more inclusive employment that recognizes staff with Autism.
We can't wait to share the game with the managers in hospitality, a powerful tool in this journey towards greater understanding, inclusion, and opportunities for individuals with Autism.
