What is it about?

People with disabilities have hardly any chances on the labour market. For people with high support needs, the situation on the labour market is almost hopeless. They are also usually unable to complete an apprenticeship. The Pippilotta restaurant in Innsbruck is taking a new approach. People with disabilities are trained in a modular way. This allows them to prove that they have certain skills. This modular training is based on the National Qualification Framework and is thus also recognised by companies. This helps when starting a job.
