MORE AUTONOMY FOR GREATER STUDENT SUCCESS

Education for all, including the visually impaired and blind.

By providing real autonomy throughout the campus, you enable your visually impaired students to :

  • Move freely on the campus, its surroundings and access to all buildings.
  • Access to all the services offered on site.
  • Reduce their stress and dependency on travel.
  • Promote their success and integration with other students.

Provide equitable access to education and employment

Earning a higher education degree is key to practicing the career of your choice and to achieving fulfillment.

Lack of accessibility should not be a barrier to choosing a career path.

And it is also a way to access the job market. In 2020, 50% of young people without any diploma were unemployed, whereas this rate was only 10% for those with 2 years of higher education or more (source INSEE, employment survey).

TESTIMONY

Anne Witczak, vice-president for student life and culture at the UPVD

Virtuoz improves the autonomy of students and staff with disabilities, gives them confidence and helps to improve their study conditions, their professional integration and/or their working conditions. We also hope that Virtuoz will be an awareness and demonstration tool, for the visitors of the school and the teachers, parents and students of primary and secondary schools, regularly welcomed in our school.

Virtuoz is a real plus, both for the autonomy of our students and for our policy of welcoming disabled people.
