Latest news and updates from WorkAbility
Dear WorkAbility community members,

Welcome to the second edition of our newsletter, where we continue to unravel the inspiring journey of the WorkAbility project. As we explore the project's ongoing efforts to promote inclusivity, we are eager to unveil the most recent advancements and narratives that underscore the significant impact we aim to make in the field of adult education for individuals with changed working abilities.


In this issue, we revisit the central priority of WorkAbility — to increase participation and improve outcomes in adult education for those with changed working abilities. Discover the initiatives and strategies we've employed to ensure equality by providing opportunities for all.

“People with changed working ability: mapping the way to get soft skills to find and retain a job place" - our first resource is ready to explore.

People with changed working ability stories | Explore how WorkAbility is actively promoting inclusive labor market policies.
We invite you to watch a series of shared stories of people with disabilities which we have collected in order to understand their pathway, experiences and examples of the importance of selected soft skills and how they end up developing them.

Get an exclusive preview of the upcoming milestones and future plans for the WorkAbility project. As we chart the course ahead, we invite you to be part of the exciting journey towards a more inclusive society.


We are in the final stages with the development of our second result, the Job Platform’ specifications for soft skills self-assessment. This tool will be crucial for increasing people with disabilities’ capacity for professional autonomy, providing a baseline for fine-tuning the training course contents and tailoring the training to trainees. 

We’ve also been working on developing the materials for our third result, Soft Skills for employment – course portfolio. The course will be highly flexible and modular and it will support social workers to access curated content and train people with changed working ability (with great focus on young people) on developing their human capital potential.
Taking advantage of our second staff training in Budapest, which took place last September, we focused on testing the content of the training program, to identify how it could be improved to enhance its impact. The modules, as designed by the WorkAbility consortium, cover the following soft skills: social ability and interpersonal interaction, leadership, self-efficacy, motivation to work, affiliation, and self-awareness.
