Innovative Practice 2021 on Inclusive Employment and ICT
Making civil service positions accessible for people with intellectual disabilities
Plena inclusión España is a national Spanish NGO with regional federations that supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. In 2011 it was mandated by the Ministry of Territorial Policy and Public Function to develop a recruitment process in the public sector for people with intellectual disabilities. Through a targeted call for employment and adapted registration, training, and examination materials, 448 people secured jobs at the national level between 2012 and 2020.
“I feel happy because I got the job with my own effort. It’s permanent and I learn things every day.”
