SEC Special Employment Centre

AMPANS creates opportunities for labour integration. Dignified and valuable work for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, functional diversity, physical, sensory or mental illness. As a protected work placement, we offer productive and adapted work, and ensure that each person receives the supports that fit their needs.

Full sociolaboral inclusion goes through the right to decent and valuable work. From our comprehensive labor services, we support people with support needs in their professional stage. AMPANS created the Special Employment Center (CET) in 1969 to generate employment opportunities for people with disabilities, through productive and adapted work. Its purpose is the creation of stable jobs, adjusted to the reality of the market and aimed at the integration of people with disabilities. "This action is promoted and subsidized by the Department of Enterprise and Employment and financed by the European Social Fund as part of the European Union's response to the COVID-19 pandemic."
