The objective of the contract is to strengthen institutional capacity of the Directorate General for Special Education and Guidance Services (DGfSEGS) of the Ministry of National Education (MoNE).
A training need analysis (TNA) will be conducted on special field qualifications for special education, guidance services and mainstream teachers to determine their needs of trainings in special and inclusive education. Accordingly, teachers will be trained with in-service training programmes which will be revised in accordance with the output of the TNA. STEM trainings (four specific disciplines on science, technology, engineering and mathematics) will be delivered to teachers of Science and Art Centres of the DGfSEGS and implementation of an assessment tool for students’ achievement to promote universal screening and progress monitoring will be ensured.
Awareness raising activities and workshop on special education for inclusive education will enable relevant stakeholders accessed through events. An assessment of the system will be conducted in the pilot provinces where identification and placement of the students with special education needs is executed.
