Abstract

This exploratory study is part of a four-country study undertaken by the International Labour Organization (ILO) in Geneva, Switzerland, on vocational skills acquisition and employment experiences of people with disabilities. The aims of the study were to identify effective strategies for vocational skills acquisition by persons with disabilities leading to productive work; and to promote training policies and effective methods of training and employment services delivery for individuals with different types of disabilities, particularly in mainstream training institutions.
