- Make employers more aware about VIP employability issues, professional roles which could be covered by them and providing information about standards / technological and requirements necessary for their optimal working conditions.

Target Groups

- Employers, guidance professionals, labor services operators, trainers and educators that could be an innovative reference to train / prepare them to effectively deal with blind and VIP needs.

- Trainers, educators, teachers, support teachers, and tutors to aid in managing specific needs of VIP
