How can we interrupt the isolation of disabled, challenging and other ‘different’ children and adults?
This is our lead workshop/training day and is both a values primer and a practical guide to successful strategies for developing inclusive practice in educational and non educational settings for children and young people of all ages. This is practical plus being a ‘hearts and minds’ day.
What does inclusion mean? Can we imagine what an inclusive school look like? What do we have to do?
The day gives those present opportunities to reflect on their attitudes and practice in relation to the inclusion of children and adults who are different or challenging.
The Keys can be presented as a powerful interactive Keynote for large conferences. A great way to launch a conference as the first key is ‘welcome’.
‘An unforgettable day’
‘The vision we all dreamed of today is not a possibility but a reality if we all work together and support each other’
‘The whole day had a big impact on my day to day attitudes, responsibilities and awareness of the community around me’
‘Being able to share views and opinions on what it means to run an inclusive provision/setting’?
‘Reflecting on the meaning of inclusion, I was able to visualize the past and the focus of future work’
“Everyone should go on this course – its like preparing for life”
“I thought the session was excellent- really thought provoking. (Name) and I cried multiple times during the afternoon, it really touched us. It absolutely met the objective of ‘hearts and minds’.
From a leadership perspective, I think I am always thinking about the bigger picture and the training really made me come back to thinking about individuals. I couldn’t stop thinking about what more we can do to meet the needs of some of our pupils who are struggling. It also made me consider the wider meaning of ‘inclusion’ and the fact that it means more than just SEND.”
