Intended outcomes
  • Boost the confidence of staff when supporting children with additional needs
  • Provide an understanding of this History of Inclusion in Dubai and the connected documentation
  • Enable the Inclusion team in school to create a strong, robust Strategic Action Plan and Self Evaluation documentation

Programme Context:

The Dubai Inclusive Education Policy Framework (2017) and subsequent documentation places inclusion highly on the agenda in all schools.   It states that schools should:

  • Develop a vision for inclusion
  • Communicate an inclusive ethos
  • Provide clear policy, process and procedure
  • Provide a Standard School Service
  • Have clear systems of school-based support

 

This course is part of a series of three covering the different elements of creating and providing an inclusive community within your school in the UAE.

  • Course 1: Leading and Managing Inclusion in the UAE – Part 1
