2.2 GOOD PRACTICES IN BUCHAREST UNIVERSITY
In the context of current educational reforms and national and international legislation, a
special importance is given to the generous principles of “education for all’, to the idea of
acceptance of human diversity without discrimination, optimal school, professional and social
integration of all children, youth and adults experiencing difficulties, and not least of
generalization of the “inclusive school”.
Besides schools, a number of associations, foundations, non-governmental organizations
(NGOs) etc. focuses on finding the most effective ways to integrate children and young people
with various disabilities or handicaps to make real the principle of equal opportunities in life,
education and practice of appropriate professions so that they are appreciated and, as possible,
An example of this is represented by the “best practices” of “Alpha Transilvană”
Foundation, which combines the information, advice and mediation of employment for people
with disabilities with productive activity carried out in three sheltered workshops and in
second-hand stores reconditioned by people with disabilities.
Within this foundation, each activity aims at specific objectives for the benefit of persons
Information and counseling consist in providing information and/or specialized
support to a person regarding: choosing an occupation, progress in an occupation,
adapting to a changing occupation, changing of occupation or profession, any other
issues related to a profession.
Information and vocational counseling - which consists of three major types of
Professional information (“vocational orientation”) - which involves providing
identifying the information needs of the client, providing labor market
information (about occupations, trades and professions, practice, salary and
promotion requirements, conditions imposed by employers, occupations
dynamics), giving information about the person requesting support
(psychological profile, vocational interests), identifying strengths as a basis in
determining career path.
Counseling and psychological evaluation – the confidential way to offer support
to people being in crisis situations.
The psychological evaluation is performed in order to create the psychological
profile of the beneficiary to provide the integration environment suitable to
his/her psychological structure.
It requires a special form of communication, an individualized relationship
established between the counselor and the client within its limits being
accomplished: identification of the client problems, determination of the steps
which have to be followed (along with the persons that are counseled).
Vocational counseling - which is based on the personal development
principle and implies the encouragement of autonomy and the increase of the
motivation degree of the client, so that he or she is actively involved in
solving personal problems, assuming responsibility for taking decisions in the
Vocational counseling consists in: choosing the occupation/profession, employment or
professional training enrollment, conceiving of objectives, goals, preparation of the
professional balance of the individual being counseled, preparation of the individual action
plan based on the results of individual discussion and tests conducted, organization of practical
applications in order to learn the techniques and tools needed for finding a job: preparing a CV,
the letter of intent, the letter of thanking, interview presentation, monitoring and evaluation
throughout the process of informing and vocational counseling of each client.
Vocational education - represents a program designed to develop the job-related
skills of young people with disabilities willing to work, in order to successfully cope
with job demands.
In the vocational education program one does not focus on vocational training of youth in
some profession, but on their social skills and abilities training needed for the integration
process and for keeping a job.
The vocational education program is divided into four steps:
1. Selection of companies and beneficiaries - is done starting with an acceptance
response from them, based on an assessment of the workplace and on the consistency between
job requirements and capabilities of youth with mental disability.
2. Workplace practice - practice of youth is carried out under a collaboration agreement
between the Alpha Transilvană Foundation and the host company.
Youth will be monitored throughout the period of probation, aiming at the development,
adaptability and social integration.
At this stage, gaining beneficiary independence and the understanding that sooner or later
he or she will have to go his/her own way it is important, not because he/she was abandoned,
but because he/she learned to fend for himself/herself.
3. Vocational counseling - Vocational counseling meetings have different themes
formulated in an adapted language, easy to understand, in order to identify client’s problems, to
determine the steps for choosing a job, to conceive the objectives and goals of the beneficiary,
to prepare of the individual action plan based on the results of individual discussion.
4. Activities for the development of independent life skills - consisting of a minimum
set of skills that allow the holder to conduct a normal social life, not needing any assistance or
accompanying from social services.
These activities are carried out at the “Alpha Transilvană” Foundation in those days
when the young man is not at the practical training in the workplace and are grouped in the
following themes: daily life skills, the skills of home management and use of community
resources, money management skills, skills regarding personal care, skills regarding social

2.3 GOOD PRACTICES IN WORKING WITH STUDENTS
WITH SPECİAL NEEDS
Special Secondary School nr. 7
The Leonardo da Vinci life-long learning partnership titled Comparing the techniques used in
the vocational education of children with special needs and supporting their social and
professional integration (acronym: WorkSEN) has facilitated an exchange of good practices
between teachers from Turkey, Romania and Poland. By means of visits to participating
schools, the teachers have enriched their professional experience by comparing the special
educational systems and curricula of partner countries, and the teaching methods and
techniques used in working with mentally disabled children.
Good practices in class
Mobility to Turkey (14 to 20 November- 2011)
Work visits to special schools were organised, which have occasioned the experience
exchange between teachers and students. During this visit, the students from Romania have
worked together with their colleagues from Turkey, knitting, crafting, listening to the Turkish
students playing traditional instruments and painting, thus having the opportunity to know the
way their colleagues from other countries learn and prepare for life.
The teachers took part in class activities, observing the teaching methods of the Turkish
special educational system. Discussions took place on the educational and practical activities
enjoined by the curriculum in order to integrate children with mental disabilities (occupational
therapy, drawing, painting, cooking, artisanship, music, knitting etc.).
Mobility to Romania at Special Secondary School nr. 7 (26 March to 1 April- 2012)
During the school visit, the students from Poland and Turkey took part in reading, writing,
drawing, painting, maths and sports activities in class, together with students from Romania,
and have asked questions about the school programme.
Strong points of class activities in the visited institutions which constitute an example of
Involvement and professional commitment;
Empathetic teacher-student relationship;
Comparative approach to diagnostic evaluation (IQ limits for various degrees of
disability and associated deficiencies, skill limits);
Differentiated educational treatment of students according to the type and degree of
Material resources and learning environment adapted to the students' needs (e.g.
individual, one-to-one work in case of children with severe disabilities);
Development of skills and abilities for personal autonomy and for real-life situations
and also for socio-professional integration;
Focus on specific aspects of career orientation and social integration;
Educational activities were organised according to the children's abilities and accorting to
school programme. The students' motivation has increased as a result of the approach toward
the project activities. The following objectives have been met:
Improving the students' attitudes and skills of adapting to school and work
Improving the students' preprofessionalisation abilities for professional integration;
Developing the skills of children with disabilities in order to support the necessary
abilities for developing a future career;
Good practices in project activities
The activities undertaken by the students from partner countries took place during cooking
and decoration workshops and dance shows.
The students from Poland and Turkey which took part in the mobility prepared a Tiramisu
cake with the help of students from Special Secondary School nr. 7. They were congratulated
and rewarded with certificates for their work. The cake was served by all the participants.
Easter decorations workshop
The partners were invited to a visit to the local Children's Club, where children with special
needs undertake extra-school and extra-curriculum activities. During this visit the Easter
decorations workshop took place, during which children and teachers from Romania, Turkey
and Poland have worked together. Certificates of participation were awarded.
The children from partner countries have performed both modern and traditional songs and
dances. The dance show also aimed at involving the local community in the project activities
and integrating the children with special needs into the community by organising the show
with the aid of a mainstream school. The show was appreciated by the both the participants
and the local community. The dancers and musicians were awarded certificates for their
Two days of professional experience
The students of Special Secondary School nr. 7, participants in the Leonardo da Vinci
WorkSEN project, took part in two days of professional activities in the Little Pizza-baker's
Shop and folk artisans' fairs according to the activity plan of the project.
Sixth grade and other students of the school have undertaken preprofessionalisation activities
during which they learned to bake pizza. After the activities, the students received certificates.
These activities have been organised with the aim of developing practical abilities, in order to
prepare secondary school students for school and professional guidance toward arts and crafts
During the project activities, the students took part in traditional craft workshops in order to
guide them toward traditional crafts such as pottery, sewing, artisanship, painting glass icons
Exhibition and sale of products made by the students on the occasion of the winter holidays
(December 2012) during the Leonardo da Vinci project at the Romanian Peasants' Museum.
Exhibition held by the students from Turkey during the mobility to Romania.
The students from each partner institution have exchanged handmade postcards on their
special days, such as national, religious and traditional holidays. This exchange allowed
students to actively take part in the communication section of the project.
Postcards made and sent by the students from Romania to the project partners on the occasion
of the winter holidays.
Postcards received from the project partners (students from Poland and Turkey).
The students of Special Secondary School nr. 7, participants in the WorkSEN project, have
made a number of products: paintings, glassware, bottles, painted globes decorated with
various materials, holiday postcards, traditional gifts, manually painted polystyrene Easter
eggs, handmade tablecloths and handkerchiefs etc.
In order to support the entrepreneurial spirit and develop ties to the professional environment,
the students were encouraged to establish a virtual company in order to simulate selling the
products. They chose a manager, a sales representative and an accountant. The company was
implemented on the project's website, each partner country having a page where to display the
Here are some of the products made by the students from Romania, together with the prices
they have set for them, in national (RON) and European currency (EUR).
All Christmas ornaments:
11 EUR / 49.5 RON
During the project mobilities, the professional offer and the level of social insertion of
children with special needs were compared by presenting the situation (offer of special
professional schools and labour market) in Romania and in the partner countries. It has been
noticed that the educational offer can be enlarged with jobs offered to persons with disabilities
in other countries (barber, hairdresser, cashier, cleaner, artisan etc.).
By comparing the degree of social insertion of youths with disabilities we notice the fact that
both in Turkey and in Poland there is a greater concern on the part of both the public
economic sector and the private sector to offer jobs to disabled youths for trades they have
qualified for through professional schools. Also, these youths are being helped to find
employment, and they can qualify at the workplace. The governments of partner countries
offer a greater social protection to youths with disabilities which qualify for a trade, by
helping them to find employment.
In Turkey, the project coordinator (from Special Secondary School nr. 7) presented a guide
for school and professional guidance.
In Romania, presentations regarding the Report on the labour force for students with special
needs from participating countries took place.
The University of Bucharest has compiled a guide of good practices for parents, Based on the
guide for parents made by the University of Bucharest, a training course to prepare families of
children with special needs and volunteers (members of society) regarding the work
legislation and social rights of disabled persons.
Course for parents
Stills from the course for parents regarding work legislation and the rights of disabled
persons. The 15-hour course module has been shown to the parents by the school headmaster
and the project coordinator (teachers Lucian Mozer-Schönborn and Carmen-Marilena
Ș erbănescu). The post-test questionnaires have shown an improvement of the parents'
knowledge both with regards to legislation and to the psychological knowledge of their own
child (needs and support, method of approaching deficiency).
School guidance for children with mental disabilities
Examples of individual counselling of the students' parents with regard to the educational
offer of special professional schools. At the end of the eighth grade, individual counselling of
the students and their parents takes place. The educational offers of special arts and crafts
schools are shown. Each parent and student is counselled by the class director.
Educational offers of some arts and crafts schools (vocational schools)
Offer nr. 1:
constructions, plumbing and public works
o construction worker (finisher)
tourism and food service
o hotel worker
o milling and baking
textiles and leather
o knitting and clothing
Offer nr. 2
o construction worker (metal structure assembler)
constructions, plumbing and public works
o plumber (technical-sanitary installations)
o wallpapering, wall-painter
o fish and meat products
The parents were told of the importance of school and professional guidance:
Every society requires the practice of trades and services;
Each student has the possibility of learning and practising a craft that is useful to
Through work, each can win his bread and help his peers;
The practice of a trade requires a certain system of communicating and relating to
In the practice of a trade, knowledge and habits that are accumulated through
schooling in an ACS are needed;
Work requires effort, and the results depend on it, and on the level of training.
Each parent understood the importance of school guidance and will choose a trade for their
child according to the child's preference and the recommendations of the class educator, the
professionalisation activities teacher, the psychodiagnostician, the school medic and the
school's professional guidance committee.
A society's level of civilisation can be assessed by the attitude they display toward persons
with special needs. Furthermore, the social and professional integration of children with SEN
is dependent upon the attitudes and material conditions offered to them by society, which has
obligations toward all of its members. The Constitution of Romania stipulates the right to
work and equal rights for all its citizens, without discrimination.
Two visits to ACS 2 and ACS 3 with the students were arranged in order to achieve the
knowledge and behaviours related to preprofessionalization, to know the special education
arts and crafts schools in Bucharest and to achieve optimal professional guidance. The
purpose of these visits was to get acquainted to their future professions.
During those visits, the students received information about the various trades which form the
educational offer of the two schools, about the tools use in those trades, about the usefulness
of each trade and about the employment opportunities after graduating from professional
school. The job offer accords to the students' capacities and to the demands of the labour
market (construction worker, carpentry, food service worker etc.).
During the Leonardo da Vinci WorkSEN project, a visit was arranged to the hotel where the
students of an arts and crafts school undertake practice for jobs in tourism and food service.
The employers expressed their satisfaction regarding the way children with special needs have
been working and informed us of their being willing to employ those who graduate from
professional school as hotel and food service workers.
Through the activities which have been proposed and undertaken in the project, the following
good practices were emphasised:
The exchange of professional experience, through:
o comparing the visions (concepts) for the most effective means to integrate
students with special needs (with regard to the cultural aspects, material and
human resources, labour market, social status of the family etc.);
o socialisation and communication (linguistic, intercultural and professional);
Participating in the school activities and discussing the work methods used for
students with special needs;
Ties between teachers and educators from the academic and pre-academic educational
Emphasis on specific aspects of career guidance and social integration of students with
Discussions regarding practical and educational activities for integrating children with
Promoting the integration of persons with special needs into the social and
Improving the educational approach by comparing the different educational systems;
Improving the inadequate behaviour of certain families or parents toward children with
Presenting the opportunities on the labour markets of the participant countries for
students with special needs, especially for those with mental deficiencies.
The activities undertaken in the project aimed at (and achieved) developing the skills of
students with special needs, their motivation, increasing their confidence in their abilities.
They felt equal to the rest of their peers, acknowledging the fact that they are important
members of society.
Through the practical activities undertaken during the workshops, visits to special
professional schools, the two days of professional experience and by creating a virtual
company on the project website, the students' social and entrepreneurial skills have been
developed, thus fulfilling the project's objectives.
The positive impact on the local community, parents and students from mainstream education
was noted, especially after involving them in the dance show and workshops. Uploads to the
project site (www.worksen.com) demonstrate the variety of the activities and their impact on
Mobility to Romania at the Department of Special Psychopedagogy
Representatives of the Ministry of Education, Research, Youth and Sports, of the School
Inspectorate of the Municipality of Bucharest (the inspector for special and integrated special
education, Adrian Romeo Cozma), as well as representatives from associations working with
children and youths with special needs were invited.
The project was presented, and also the parents' training guide on how to treat children with
disabilities, the work legislation and their social rights. Representatives of the public
authorities have shown a few video presentations regarding the issue of children with special
needs in Romania and expressed their interest for the project's subject, as well as for their
willingness to support the social and professional integration of youths with special needs.
The project activities had an important impact on the students, families, teachers and the local
community, leading to:
An increase in the quality of the instructive-educational act and the improvement in
the school and professional guidance for students with special needs;
An improvement of the cooperation between the school, family, community and the
An increase in the school's prestige.
