Responding to the visually impaired’s limited access to vocational training, L'OCCITANE is committed to supporting the creation of innovative new courses, accessible to the visually impaired.
As early as 2007, the L'OCCITANE Foundation began supporting, with the consulting firm Easylife, the creation and implementation of a new training course. Presenting multiple opportunities and meaningful employment prospects, the Wellbeing Practitioner course was made available, for the first time, in 2009-2010 in three vocational rehabilitation centers, which are also engaged in the project: the Centre for Training and Vocational Rehabilitation (CFRP) of the Valentin Haüy Association, and the Vocational Rehabilitation Centre (CRP) and the Rehabilitation Centre for the Visually Impaired (VAC) of Clermont-Ferrand.
After several years of experimentation, the Wellbeing Practitioner course has been recognized by the state, which will allow students better employment opportunities and greater recognition, making for a bright future in perspective.
