IIEP-UNESCO/UNICEF’s Upcoming Round Table addressing issues related to Education in Children with Disabilities

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

The UNESCO International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP-UNESCO) has partnered with UNICEF to host a Technical Round Table to support ministries of education in planning education systems to include children with disabilities. It will be held from 18-20 July 2018 in Paris, France.

The upcoming round table will address issues related to children with disabilities, which remain one of the most excluded groups from education. It will address these issues by bringing together government experts, development partners, and major national Disability People’s Organizations from eight countries in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia and the Pacific.

Participants will take stock of current practices and opportunities for disability-inclusive educational planning and explore ways to address critical data and capacity gaps. IIEP’s Virtual Campus will also host a two-week preparatory virtual phase for the participants from 2 July to 16 July, as well as an open livestreamed “Data Dive” with a disability data expert on 10 July.

Inclusive education entails reaching out to all learners and addressing all forms of exclusion and inequalities in access, school participation, and learning outcomes. Effective models for inclusion can help children with disabilities flourish and ultimately play an important and active role in society. Inclusive education is also beneficial for all learners with its focus on diversity and quality and its responsiveness to the different needs of children.

After the Round Table, IIEP will continue its collaboration with UNICEF to develop an IIEP training offer on disability-inclusive education sector planning, starting with region-specific distance education courses.
