Inclusiveness, Innovation and integration for Socio-labor Insertion have been responsible for welcoming students who will receive this training in the coming months in the classrooms of the TecnoCampus.

It is an initiative implemented years ago in several Spanish universities and now reaches the Pompeu Fabra University, through the TecnoCampus, with the aim of contributing to the employability of young people with intellectual disabilities. They are endowed with competencies both of a transversal nature - the social and emotional skills necessary to maintain satisfactory interactions - and of a specific nature - knowledge and skills required for the effective exercise of their work activity.

The teaching will be given by teachers of the various degrees taught at the TecnoCampus, while the coordination is in charge of the Chair of Social Economy. It should be noted that undergraduate students will collaborate as volunteers to facilitate the integration on campus of these young people who have no previous experience at the University.
