Inclusion comes to life

Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences and Campus Woudhuis organised a practical day of inclusive education and research on campus in June. More than twenty students, most of whom had done research projects on campus, discussed their experiences with inclusive research. Sofie Sergeant, recently promoted researcher disability studies at the VU was the discussion partner. With challenging statements, presentations of student research, and practical group discussions, inclusion came to life. With a growing labour demand and scarcity, the time seems more than ripe to make inclusion core of the labour market.

Common Grounds with inclusive employers

Last Thursday, April 23rd was the kick-off of the Common Grounds with inclusive employers project. In a kick-off meeting with the first two employers who will be setting up a Common Ground, the goals, principles and plan of approach were discussed. Whereas Campus Woudhuis has so far focused primarily on work/learning processes for employees in their own company on the estate, the Common Grounds will, looking ahead, develop a methodology and facilities to facilitate employees in taking the step to work for a regular company. We will work with groups of three employees on average. First of all at construction company Veeneman, which is working with landscaper Walter Ruesink to put inclusive employment into practice. Levi van Dijk, employed by forest and nature manager Johan Rap, will start working part-time as a foreman on the Campus in May.
