The aim of the project is to find new ways of working with people who are marginalised from society and not engaged in the workforce or in education and training programmes provided in the partnership countries.  The project will focus on key managers working with the organisations involved in the partnership and as a result of the learning in the project, it is hoped that the sharing of best practice will impact on adults and young people from marginalised communities who engage with the services available in the participating organisations.

The project will address the following:

- The system of education that supports learners with learning disabilities.

- Working with minorities (Roma community, Travellers in Ireland). 

- Increasing the knowledge of the participants especially the managers of human resource sections of the organisations involved in the partnership in relation to working with marginalised communities.

- Enable the key managers to exchange experiences on aspects of the labour market and the European system of education  operating in the partnership countries.

- Examination of career counselling and general educational guidance for those students of marginalised backgrounds will be central to the project.

It is hoped that the outcomes of the project will impact on policy developments with education and training programmes/institutions  for people who are marginalised from society.  

The approach that will be adopted in the project will be through lectures, general discussion, group work, brainstorming, exploration and visits to centres, projects that engage with members of marginalised communities.  It is hoped that the seminars/conferences will be experiential in nature and will provide not only a theoretical framework for key managers in their work in their own organisation but also many practical ideas and experience.
