Zero Project 2019/20
Universidad Andres Bello is a private university based in Chile. They have developed a three-year vocational training programme for students with intellectual disabilities, fully housed within the university campuses. The programme develops employment skills in specific industries and supports students’ transition to work. Since 2006, there have been 403 graduates, 72 per cent of whom are now employed. The programme runs at all three campuses and has been replicated in universities in Argentina, Mexico, and Spain.

As well as replicating the programme to its other campuses, UAB has also supported three universities to replicate the programme in Argentina, Mexico, and Spain, and it is looking to expand this replication further.
We wish to partner with Higher education organisations that aim at developing an inclusive culture in their communities.
We look for partners in countries with similar job training needs for people with intellectual disabilities.
We wish to replicate Our inclusive education model based on equity:
– Curriculum adaptations
– Personalised approach
– Cognitively accessible methodologies
– Multidisciplinary support
– Special protocols
We will work through partnerships and alliances
