Schools4Inclusion is a European project, comprising five countries and six partners: Pompeu Fabra University (Spain), Amadora Innovation (Portugal), TLC College (United Kingdom), CENTRUL PENTRU PROMOVAREA ÎNVĂȚĂRII PERMANENTE TIMIȘOARA ASOCIAȚIA (Romania), TITAN PARTNERSHIP (United Kingdom) and Athens Lifelong Learning Institute (Greece).
Schools4Inclusion is funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus + program and will run for 36 months (October 2019 – September 2022).
Our project envisions to deliver a strategy aimed to transform Schools into inclusive environments, conducive to the successful integration of migrant children.
Within its life cycle, the project aims to achieve the following results:
The development of a comprehensive model for school education including ‘The Inclusive Education Guidelines’ and the development of an online toolkit.
The project will develop through the following activities:
- IO1 – Methodology & Action Plans’
- IO2 – The Inclusive Education Toolbox of Activities, Tools and Templates.
- Five Multiplier Events in 2021 in each of the partner countries.
- One Short-term joint staff training event in July 2021
Even through the severe limitations caused by the outbreak of the pandemics, we have kept our course and our goals. As of now, we’ve arrived at the final stages of the first phase of the project, namely through the completion of IO1: The Inclusive Education Guidelines – that develops an analytic prescription on how the school can develop and implement a comprehensive schoolwide reform.
So far, and within IO2, partners drafted the methodology for the need’s analysis and the bibliographical research. Our next steps will involve preparatory activities (audience recruitment, consent forms) for the implementation of focus groups and interviews that will take place between November and December, followed by data analysis in January 2021. In parallel, the Alpha version of the Toolkit will be released by in December 2020.
And we have kept going, namely through work on IO2, which wants to equip educators with the tools required to practice inclusive education in their unique school environment.
