"Building an inclusive school for all”
The 5th edition of this training course aims to develop the understanding and expertise of teachers, trainers, headmasters and school staff on inclusive education for persons with disabilities. The course provides a certificate delivered by a European organisation.
10th-15th March 2019
The course offers a framework for the further development and promotion of inclusive education, as well as a hands-on experience in the planning of such an approach.
The courses programme will cover:
- The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
- The Index for inclusion
- Universal Design for Learning
- Curriculum differentiation within a national curriculum
- A school visit to see inclusive education in practice.
- Strategic planning and change management
- Opportunities for inclusive school assistance
Information and discovery sessions will alternate with discussion groups, peer group support and reflection sessions. The methods used will offer in the first place an individual learning pathway, supported by a reflection and learning portfolio.
The course provides a safe learning environment for school headteachers, middle management, teachers and teaching assistants, educational guides and counsellors, inspectors and administrative staff willing to challenge their mind and to engage in a 5-day course to learn and discover with and from colleagues in an international setting how to move towards inclusive education. It also addresses external support people, including coordination staff of education and social support services.
The course is coordinated by the Standing Committee on Education of EASPD and organised by a consortium of European organisations and universities involved in the development of inclusive education across Europe. The tutors will include Annemie Jennes (VSKO, Belgium), Marleen Clissen (VSKO, Belgium), Wolfgang Plaute (Pädagogische Hochschule Salzburg, Austria) and Michael Longhino (Chance B, Austria) amongst other guest trainers.
Registrations will open soon. The 20 places available will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.
