Hringsjá was founded in 1987 by the Icelandic Center for people with disabilities (ÖBÍ), then as a Vocational Training center for adults with disabilities. Hringsjá´s function has evolved and grown since then. Hringsjá is now a school for adults who have themselves applied for studies, and also determined their need for an educational and vocational training in a supported and safe environment. The overall objective is empowerment through education and the enhancement of personal development. Students are both men and women, 18 years of age and older with diverse background and story in life. Their common goal at Hringsjá is to enter mainstream work, or enter a “regular” school after they finish their studies at Hringsjá. Statistics show that 70%-80% of those students that have graduated reached that goal, but all say that the quality of their life improved. Students have various backgrounds and have decided to reassess and strengthen their possibilities and position in society. Most students have health problems due to disease, accidents, trauma, psychiatric illness or lifestyle choices. Most have more than one diagnosis. Many have a history of difficulties during their previous school years. Hringsjá is a small school, with approximately 70 students attend the full training program at a time, the full program is 3 semesters. In addition approx. 400 students a year, attend shorter courses and consultation. Most of Hringsjá´s students receive their income from National Social Security, the majority only temporarily while studying at Hringsjá. The training program consists of courses in basic skills such as reading, writing and arithmetic as well as social studies and social skills, but main emphasis is on teaching and training in skills important for office and service work e.g. bookkeeping, Icelandic, English and the use of computers . Special focus is on a variety – and sometimes untraditional teaching methods and approaches. In addition; student´s also receive training in the area of various personal skills, with the guidance of a psychologist and social counsellor. Some students receive special education and/or further diagnosis of their situation, particularly ADD/ADHD or Dyslexia. Among special supports provided is Davis Dyslexia counselling, private coaching and an extensive network and teamwork with a variety of agencies and institutions. Educational and vocational counselling is provided as well as teaching and training in various job-seeking skills. A vocational counsellor gives a follow up guidance. Hringsjá aims at providing a safe, comfortable environment for education, vocational training and personal growth, for adults that have not had many victories in life. Hringsjá is a place where students redefine their skills, interest and self image. Students that graduate from Hringsjá usually speak of finally finishing something, having reached a goal; being winners and succeeding.
