4. Employers – companies who would like to introduce the SE approach into their companies and to take benefit from the project results for free of charge!
5. Governmental bodies – institutions responsible for changes into the social policy and labour legislation such as Job Centres, Executive Employment Agency, The Parliament, The Council of Ministries, Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, Ministry of Education, Science and Youth, National accreditation/certification bodies etc. in participating partners’ countries. One of the project’s intellectual outputs is the Recommendation Guidelines for the implementation of the Supported employment into the legal framework of the participating countries which is only possible if such EQAVET system for recognition/validation and dedicated accreditated VET programme for SE providers will be developed.
6. EU level institutions responsible for the Supported employment implementation (such as EUSE, EASPD etc.). As it was stated in Above sections for the rationale behind the project idea such EU institutions are seeking for establishment of recognition/validation and accreditation mechanisms so they will be involved since the beginning of the project to ensure project sustainability and mainstreaming around Europe.
