Career Paths Inclusive is an Erasmus+ project to design, develop and test digital multimedia career guidance tools in Sign Language. Deaf youth are able to plan their career paths unaided in their first language, and are empowered and informed in their choice of future career.
Children and youth who are deaf or hard of hearing face many barriers in education, training and employment. Despite many advances in recent years, adequate bilingual education in Sign language and written language is still not available in most European countries. This means in practice that many deaf children acquire only lower literacy levels and there are few bilingual resources available to them.
The availability of career guidance tools in Sign Language enables deaf youth to decide for themselves, plan and experiment in their first language, thereby facilitating greater self-determination and inclusion.
