Norwegian Association of the Blind and Partially Sighted (NABP) and Enabling Education Network (EENET) welcome you to this virtual training module, Module 1 – an introduction to inclusive education.
If you are undertaking this training it means you have agreed to become an IETT programme principal trainer. This training will prepare you to deliver Module 1 of the participatory training programme to the programme’s pilot schools.
You will be accessing reading materials, interactive learning activities, photo, film and audio content, case studies and guidance that will help you understand key concepts and familiarise you with the training manual you will use to deliver the training to schools.
Module 1 is divided into 8 sessions.
During each session of the virtual training there will be opportunities for you to participate in quizzes and learning activities.
It saddens us that the Covid-19 pandemic is preventing us from meeting up and training together. However we plan to organise plenty of face-to-face training workshops with you once this crisis has passed. So for now, please engage with every aspect of the training. It is vital that this virtual training of trainers (ToT) workshop leaves you well prepared for delivering the pilot school training programme ahead.
