After three years of successful initiatives in the field of vocational training for people with intellectual disabilities, the EQUALvet project is now coming to an end. The final conference will take place online on Tuesday 15th November, from 10h00 to 12h00 CET.

During the event, the development of a vocational training program will be presented, including how the project met the requirements of accreditation agencies, to ensure proper certification of participants' professional skills.

Project’s partners in Greece, Spain and Portugal will provide more information about internships, trainings and evaluations conducted in their organisations. They will also offer a better understanding of the evaluation and certification procedure set up in the EQUALvet project.
