Trainings on disability inclusion coming up!

04 Sep 2018
September 28: General introduction to inclusive development. October 11: inclusive education training. NB! Change of venue!

Training on Inclusive Education on October 11.

Deadline for registration:  October 1.

Global Partnership for Education has estimated that 264 million children, adolescents and youth were out of school in 2015. The Education Commission has estimated that 25 % to 50 % of children with disabilities in LIC and MIC countries are not in school, so we know that a large proportion of out of school children have a disability. What can we do to ensure that no child is left behind?

This training is targeting those who have already completed the general training on “disability inclusion in development and humanitarian work”, and want to go more in-depth on inclusive education. It will focus on:

• What inclusive education is, why it is important, and for whom?

• What are the barriers to inclusive education?

• The international legal and policy framework for inclusive education

• How can we design an inclusive education project cycle?
