The project will develop products aimed at our target group of professionals working with people with mental health issues which will enable them to support their service users i.e. people with mental health issues, into employment, and whilst in employment, to support them to develop personal and non-vocational skills and to improve their knowledge and competencies. The Project has six partners operating in five countries across Europe. The project is based upon the Individual Placement and Support model (IPS) and will develop products to help our target group work with employers and service users to "place then train". Whilst the basis of IPS is "place then train" we have found the majority of emphasis is on placement with very little on supporting access to adult learning for service users whilst in employment. In addition our research has highlighted a lack of support for professionals working with people with mental health issues to place, then train. Our end product will be Workbooks and a DVD intended primarily for Mental health professionals. But also at employers and service users. We want to ensure that our product is of the highest quality; so each partner will be conducting research and holding focus groups with all three end users throughout the development process. We aim to have the product tested and completed for full release by September 2013.
