February 2014 – October 2015
Network of Education Policy Centers (NEPC) and Macedonian Civic Education Center (MCEC) in Macedonia were selected by Council of Europe to be the Platform for supporting schools in implementing inclusive polices and practices within the EC funded project „Regional Support for Inclusive Education“ .
The idea of school support team is to be a ‘reflective friend’ of pilot schools from February 2014 to October 2015 helping them in developing both, school projects for the CoE grant as well as the school development plans. Through interactive work with school teams, as well as other staff and students of the school, the school will be led through the process of self-evaluation. The schools will be offered workshops and support, based on their needs in order to improve the already existing and introduce new inclusive policies and practices.
Summary of activities:
- Set-up focus groups (students, parents, teachers, community) in each of the 7 pilot schools;
- Support 7 pilot schools to design individual tailored development plans based on the Index for Inclusion merhodology;
