As there is number of thematically axis that the Action Plan focuses on, each Axis is supported by several Measures who in turn are implemented through number of activities. The Plan will address to these issues in order of priority staggered over time. In this section Measure and Activities would be described in following way: Structure looks in following way: 1. Themathical Axis containing extended description and main findings about the themathic axis and how it does influence the situation with employment of the disabled people. Eg. Training. 2. Measure: Measure is the goal that would be achieved with the activities included in the Action Plan. Eg: Improve levels of training for professionals and PWD
  9. 9. 3. Activity: To achieve Measure, several activities shall be outlined. This section would shortly describe the activity and the target group it should reach. Eg. “Spread knowledge about autism among target group” 4. Responsible stakeholders: The main actors who can influence the situation and have authority to implement the activity, for example, Croatian Employment Service, Local municipality etc. 5. Period of implementation: the section outlines the deadline for each particular activity. The period of implementation can be either year our a month, but it can be also ongoing. 6. Partners involved: the description names main involved partners in the activity. 7. Financial sources: rough estimation of the needed financial sources has to be outlined.
  10. 10. Example: Measures and Activities for each thematic Axis description. Structure example: AXE 1. TRAINING Extended description and main findings about the themathic axis and how it does influence the situation with employment of the disabled people. Objective 1: Improve the level of training of professionals and families Measure 1 Spread the common base of knowledge about autism Activity 1 Disseminate the document listing the corpus of knowledge Responsible stakeholders: Period of implementation: Partners involved: Financial sources in EUR

  12. 12. 4. Carry out trainings. The Implementation Plans need to clarify who will manage the program and who will provide the services required by it. The key actors responsible should be brought together in an Implementation Team; in theory, there could be a dedicated team for each measure, but (to avoid proliferation) it might be preferable to form implementation teams around combined clusters of measures.
  13. 13. 2.5. Coordination and delivery of the Action Plan The Action Plan will explain how the working groups at regional level will be established and which main stakeholders (for example, CES regional offices, Social Welfare Centres, local and regional authorities, general or vocational schools, private employment agencies, representatives of the civil society organizations of persons with disabilities and also those providing services to persons with disabilities, employers association, representatives of employers, etc.) will be involved in which measure/activity. The Action Plan will contain a procedure how the composition of the working groups will be agreed with representatives of CES regional offices in order to ensure a balance between different sectors: public, private and civil sector. The Action Plans will try to be integrated into the manuals, instructions or guidelines of each organization and service provider so that the AP become a real tool for implementation of measures aimed to integrate/reintegrate PWD in LM in a sustainable way.

The form is a template how the data about each block would be gathered. For example: Axis 1 1. Measure 1 1.1 Activity 1. Calendar: Actors: Indicators: (example) Number of regional and inter-day information, number of national meetings / regions
  15. 15. 2.7. Annexes to the Action Plan The Action Plan will contain several annexes: 2.7.1.
