In 2020, Fundación Iberdrola España has signed an agreement with Fundación Síndrome de Down to incorporate two new interns into the team. Our interns are part of the DEMOS Project of the Comillas Pontifical University, a training project for employment and university inclusion for young people with intellectual disabilities. The programme is aimed at adults with intellectual disabilities, over the age of 18, who are interested in training for employment. Each specific training programme will require a set of appropriate minimum competences.
Within this project, they have specialised in TecnoDEMOS, where they will acquire skills that will enable them to perform various auxiliary tasks with varying degrees of complexity in technological environments. This specialisation lasts 2 years, of which 15 months are in the classroom and 3 months are spent on work experience in companies.
Rodrigo and Miriam started their internship with us on 16 November 2020, and will stay until 18 December 2020, in order to complete their training and promote their optimal social integration.
They are very well integrated into the team together with Carmen Guerrero, their job coach and evaluator of the activities aimed at labour integration, taking into account their personal and social characteristics.
