OMO On My Own … at work


The project aims to promote employment of people with intellectual disabilities through the spread of targeted placements in the hotel and catering industries. Project partners have developed three tools to facilitate the achievement of this goal:

  • This first is an app for the trainees, available on smartphones or tablets, which stores tasks, tools and modes of actions for the task at hand;
  • The second is a series of videos that illustrate examples of correct relationships between the trainees with intellectual disabilities and their co-workers, aimed at the latter;
  •  The third is for the restaurant and hotel management wishing to join the network: a code of conduct, an application manual of the code and a logo that certifies the membership of the network.
