Enhancing transition to work for students with disability
A guidance methodology
The synthesis report
Based on the four national reports, the main challenge presented by the synthesis report was to take into account different contexts, suggested by French, Italian, Irish and Danish participants, in order to build a common model on academic and professional guidance of tertiary students with disabilities. Experimentation’s outcomes allowed gathering fundamental elements on this field.
Through existing experiences in France, Italy, Ireland and Denmark on academic and professional guidance of tertiary students with disabilities, it was possible to reflect and discuss in a transnational perspective, on the basis of the University of Aarhus’ model, about how to build a common model in this field. To implement this model, however, each country has used different strategies, according to its own context.

Even through the diversity of practices on how the Univers’ Emploi project was implemented, this research allowed the identification of elements and good practices that could be taken into account by Universities, Firms and Territory in order to implement an effective guidance of tertiary students with disabilities towards employment.

After an introductory chapter outlining the conceptual framework, this report is divided in five chapters :
• Research Methodology (Chapter I) which highlights the data collection methodology for the research : semi-structured interviews were carried out with 81 Students, 14 University Counsellors and 68 Mentors.
• The Students’ Needs Assessment (Chapter II) describes the three different approaches, which were identified to describe the way the students’ Needs Assessment Tool was implemented by stakeholders.
• The Guidance Methodology (Chapter III) focuses on the guidance methodology implemented within the project Univers’ Emploi.
• The Synergies (Chapter IV) focuses on the synergies created during the project. It describes the type of cooperation and synergies existing between actors.
• Recommendations for Sustainability (Chapter V) : The aim of this chapter is to present good practices on support of tertiary students with disabilities towards their employment and to identify recommendations for sustainability of the Univers’ Emploi model in the University practices.

Univers’Emploi, une méthodologie d’accompagnement des étudiants en situation de handicap conjuguant efficacement réussite universitaire et accès à l’emploi : présentation des résultats de la recherche en France
L’augmentation du nombre d’étudiants en situation de handicap dans l’enseignement supérieur a un impact limité sur le taux d’emploi des jeunes adultes en situation de handicap . Pourtant, de nombreuses entreprises désireuses de recruter des personnes en situation de handicap rencontrent de réelles difficultés à trouver, parmi elles, des profils correspondant à leurs besoins en termes de qualifications et de compétences. Devant cette contradiction, il devient primordial de développer un dispositif permettant aux étudiants en situation de handicap de conjuguer efficacement réussite universitaire et accès à emploi et, c’est exactement dans cette optique que se situe le projet Univers’Emploi.
En effet, les stratégies d’admission à l’Université incluent rarement la question de l’accès à l’emploi des étudiants handicapés, ce qui rend difficile l’identification des moyens et des soutiens nécessaires à cette population. De plus, les services handicap restent souvent trop peu outillés pour inclure la conciliation entre études et emploi dans leurs stratégies d’accompagnement. Enfin, les Universités restent relativement cloisonnées au sein de leur environnement socio-économique et l’implication des milieux économiques est globalement limitée. en France, les liens Universités/milieux économiques ne sont pas toujours aussi développés que dans d’autres pays de l’OCDE

Developing a support methodology for disabled students allowing to conjugate effectively academic success and access to employment
The growing number of students with disabilities in tertiary education has only a limited impact on their employment rate that has lowered in many EU states over the last years. Paradoxically many enterprises seeking to hire people with disabilities face difficulties in finding people with a university degree corresponding to their recruitment level.
This is why it is of crucial importance to develop a pedagogical device for assisting efficiently people with disabilities in academic success and access to employment. The stakeholders involved in this project are therefore committed to developing such a tool together with the needed supports for its implementation starting from the innovative experience of the Danish University in Aarhus.
The Univers’Emploi project is aimed at creating a methodological guide and tools helping Universities to include employment prospective of people with disabilities as a main feature in their pedagogical organisation and to develop strategies allowing students to reconcile learning, employment and social life ; in so doing Universities will also reinforce their anchorage in their socio-economic environment.

Univers’Emploi Transition to Employment : Irish Evaluation Summary Report
As a result of national strategies, the number of disabled students participating in third level education in Ireland has grown significantly in the last decade from 450 in 2000, to over 6,000 in 2010 (Ahead 2010). Consequently, the number of disabled graduates entering the labour market is at unprecedented levels.

The Disability Support Services in TCD and UCC assist students with developing self-awareness, self-determination and self-advocacy skills, and supports students in the acquisition of transferable skills. Despite this support, the transition to employment can be particularly challenging for students with sensory and physical disabilities and those with mental health difficulties

TCD and UCC became partners in the Leonardo funded employment transfer project ‘Univers’ Emploi’ in 2010. The project aimed to enhance the employability skills of students with high end disabilities and each partner country piloted an employment support framework in the needs assessment process on a sample of 20 students

Univers’emploi : enhancing employment opportunities for tertiary students with disabilities
In Italy, the enrolment of persons with disability at Higher Education has growing, particularly, from the public law n. 17 of 28th February 1999, which has based several strategies to promote their inclusion at university, labour market and social life. The CINECA - Consorzio Interuniversitario per il Calcolo Automatico dell’Italia Nord Orientale shows that enrolment of tertiary students with disabilities has increased from 5.414 in 1999 to 15.884 in Academic Year 2009/2010.
This movement was anticipated in the Nineties by a series of meetings, discussions, national and international conferences that have seen the presence of delegated representatives of the rector, involving universities, ministry and the delegates Prof. Lucia de Anna and Prof. Edoardo Arslan in order to implement processes of pedagogical accommodation based for students with disabilities.
This commitment has enabled the birth of CNUDD – “Conferenza Nazionale Universitaria dei Delegati per la Disabilità”, at the National Conference of Rectors CRUI in early 20011 with the intent to emanate a common trends in the various educational, psychological and medical that still characterize the different services implemented.
