Getting to know Metro, how to use the facilities properly, encouraging the current and future use of Metro, your rights and obligations...

Activity for Special Needs Education and Occupational Centres

It takes place on Line 8 with the same contents as for Ordinary Schools.

The specific and priority aim is to allow students and users with intellectual and developmental disabilities to achieve a higher level of self-sufficiency in their everyday life and therefore promote their integration into society.

Groups can be very diverse and so the contents are tailored to the specific needs of each group.
 

  • For Compulsory Basic Education, Transition to Adulthood, Initial Professional Qualification Programmes and Occupational Centres students.

  • Number of students per activity: up to 20.

  • Duration of the activity: 2 hours.
     

We work with support material that help understand and learn the functioning and safety basics and stress the guidelines that our users should follow. How to use Metro on a daily basis is learnt through easy, useful and visual material.
