The Project

GreeNet aims in improving and innovating inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities throughfostering specific actions within the framework of Adult Education and Rehabilitation for people with Intellectual disability. It aims to create a complete training Course for Adult Educations in Horticulture (Assistant Gardener – PID) and promote Work Based Learning (WBL) and co-training and also involve the trainees' working in the community.

GreeNet will provide the opportunity to people with Intellectual disability to obtain a certification for the learning units achieved or the entire curriculum. The course will address the latest’s technological advancements in the supported employment (Assistive Technology solution), in order to bridge this lack of skills, to increase autonomy andmaximise social impact.

An Assistive Technology toolkit will be prepared to control in real time garden conditions to improve services, to reduce time and resources required, and also reduce thepossibilities of human error. The toolkit will include a weather station, soil moisture sensors, sunlightexposure, etc).

The main Objectives of the project are:

  • To promote inclusive education and lifelong learning for people with intellectual disabilities.
  • To design and develop an Assistant Gardener curriculum for people with intellectual disabilities of EQF levels 1 and 2.
  • To design and develop an Assistant Gardener Trainer and train  2 trainers professionals working with PID in each country (Greece, Italy, Slovenia, Cyprus and Serbia) in the use of sensor technologies in horticulture and guide them or the successful organisation of the training's with main goal to ensure sustainability of the project results (EQF Level 5)
  • To develop an Assistive Technology System to assist in WBL, but also later on when the certified trainees will work in real jobs helping them to retain their skills and increase their autonomy.
  • To offer easy to read training materials specifically designed from the start, to cover the beneficiaries’ vocational needs.
  • To develop a certification system for the assessment of the training content and the trainees. Each training module will consist of learning outcomes that will correspond to training units.
  • To pilot train 10 PIDs as gardener in all partner countries in order to test the effect of the methodology and the tools.
  • To offer the materials for free through an online platform and the corresponding manuals to be used worldwide.
