Schools 4 Inclusion
As we approach the Christmas break ‘Schools4Inclusion’ project partners held their final 2020 project meeting on 9th December. The work carried out so far was discussed and project plans for new year were put in place. In the new year, the project will begin to closely engage with schools and look to recruit pilot schools who will be part of the exciting implementation phase of the project in September 2021.
The project will also have the final ‘Inclusive Education Guidelines’ available by the end of January to share with stakeholders. The project team is planning a return to physical events later in 2021 and are excited at the prospect of sharing the projects work with our schools.
Schools4Inclusion is a European project funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus + program, comprising five countries and six partners across Europe.

United in Diversity
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and the cancellation of activities, along with European lockdown measures, dissemination activities were limited to online over the last term. The transnational exchange activities were unable to take place. Titan is pleased to say that the project is continuing, and exchange activities will take place when possible. The European project team has continued to meet and stay in communication so that we are ready to go when appropriate. The project has also initiated plans to collect school resources from January and build a library of activities and resources for teachers and school staff to use free of charge that have teaching methods and tools related to the European themes.
Confident Resilient Children (CRC) Project
This term saw 23 schools begin activities in the 2nd delivery year of the CRC project. The CRC project is funded by the Youth Endowment Fund as part of a £200 million endowment from the Home Office. The project aims to help children develop strategies that build resilience and confidence that will ultimately keep them safe and less vulnerable to exploitation and criminality. It has been challenging for everyone due to COVID-19, but it is a particularly exciting time when all the hard work turns into the start of student delivery which began in November. The project team meets regularly and the feedback from schools is overwhelmingly positive. They and Titan continue to adapt to any challenges, and we are excited to see the year 5 pupil delivery begin in the new year.

Titan is continually working with potential project partners and we are currently supporting the Birmingham City Council Developing Local Provision projects for both primary and secondary schools.
