Panel discussion held in multiple locations: “Systemic error – a discussion on the transition of young people with special needs to the labour market”

Within the EU Project, My Project campaign, a panel discussion entitled Systemic error – a discussion on the transition of young people with special needs to the labour market was held at four locations in Slovenia – Nova Gorica, Kranj, Novo mesto and Murska Sobota – between the 14th and 17th of May. Representatives from the fields of education, health, and the social spheres, together with Slovenian Employment Services representatives and employers, illustrated the current state of the “systemic error” and offered some solutions in a discussion afterwards.
The participants agreed that we have relatively well-established educational and vocational systems for young people with special needs in Slovenia. At the same time, they pointed out that we are lacking an effective link between the two rather unconnected systems. This gap (the so-called “systemic error”) can be closed by the activities carried out by the YOUTH TRANSITION project, which seems to be an effective interface between the educational and vocational systems.
The attendees pointed out that inter-ministerial cooperation is indispensable. They recognized the importance of establishing a single system which aims at facilitating the transition of young people with special needs from school to the labour market. The participants in the panel discussions agreed that after the end of the project, the services provided within the YOUTH TRANSITION pilot project should continue within the existing vocational-rehabilitation system, thus providing young people with special needs a quick and efficient path to the labour market.
