Learners will have the opportunity to go through the crucial stages of building inclusive school environment through the application of the principles and approaches of the Model.

Foreseen Outputs

6.1. Adapted self-paced open-access e--learning course on inclusive education and the Model in English available for completion by interested education professionals

Quality assurance (Lead Partner: EuroEd)

Quality Assurance seeks to ensure, at a minimum, that all project activities meet agreed targets on time, with consistent management supports and that these activities are validated in relation to processes, application and review which meet strategic aims. More importantly, quality focuses on developing standards, which are consistent with referenced best practice.

7.6. Checklists to track how the standards of implementation of the good practice, including self-evaluation and plan implementation are met by the partner schools

7.7. Second-stage adaptation to local contexts of the instruments of the Model in the three partner countries by collecting and analysing feedback from application of Model in partner schools

7.8. Report on the core principles and approaches of the Model for systemic change to inclusive school environment that are overarching across European country contexts

7.9. Feedback of the testing of the online course Introduction to inclusive education in English

7.10. Instruments for future feedback and impact measurement of the scaling up of the online course Introduction to inclusive education in English

Evaluation (Lead Partner: EuroEd)

The objective of the Evaluation work package is to guarantee the quality management of communication and coordination processes required for ensuring quality project implementation.

Foreseen Outputs

8.1. Internal evaluation plan

8.2. Internal evaluation survey questionnaires

8.3. Internal evaluation survey reports

8.4. External project evaluation report

Dissemination and communication (Lead Partner: Four Elements)

A high-quality dissemination strategy is a vital part to the overall success of the project and crucial to the sustainability of the network in the long term. All partners have strong track records in dissemination activities in their respective fields. Using inclusive education, together with schools’ networks, the project will highlight findings and practical applications which refers to the inclusive education as systemic approach.
