Project Virtus

VIRTUS: Upscaling Vocational Pathways is a 2-years project which aims to battle unemployment for underrepresented populations, such as autistic individuals, by providing high quality certified skills and by preparing them for the labour market.

Funded by the Erasmus+ programme, VIRTUS will create an educational program that entails vocational training adjusted to the needs of autistic individuals through the integration of in vivo training seminars and Virtual Reality technology.

The Virtus Project foresees the creation of the following outputs:

  • An innovative curriculum
  • A training KIT for trainers
  • Virtual Reality (VR) platform and scenarios
  • Piloting Activities
  • A VIRTUS certification scheme
