What are my plans after SPED? What are my talents? Konekt helps you to answer these questions. Throughout Flanders, we organise practical courses for high-school dropouts with a mental disability, ASD and/or ABI. In these courses, you find out your strengths and you discover new things. Together we build the future you want.
You are 18 years or older. You need cognitive support (you have a mental disability, autism, ABI…) and you love working with children.
The programme ‘Co-supervisor in preschool’ consists of 14 days of training and an internship. The programme teaches you to get to know and use your talents. We learn about what it takes to work in a preschool and we take a look at your preferred tasks. Afterwards, you will do an internship at a preschool in your neighbourhood.
In Ghent, Leuven, Hasselt, Bruges en Antwerp.
Our programme starts in September en continues until June.
You are in between the ages of 18 and 30 years old. You need cognitive support (mental disability, autism, ABI…) and are looking forward to a vibrant future.
Brake-Out is a learning programme that lasts 3 years. Together with peers, coaches and supporters, we start looking for your talents and interests.
