Subject: Grundtvig - Training of trainers to provide basic ICT skills
education to people with disabilities

 

Which course?

Training of trainers to provide basic ICT skills' education to people with
disabilities, taking on board their specific needs.

Is it good for me?

Target audience:
- Teachers (Pre-school, primary, secondary, vocational, adult, special
needs)
- Teacher trainers
- Careers officers, educational guides and counsellors
- Inspectors
- Headteachers/principals/managers of schools/organisations offering adult
education
- Other (Paid or voluntary) management staff in the institution/organisation
- Non-teaching administrative staff
- Members of students/teachers councils in adult education
- Representative organizations of persons with disabilities

Hmm.what is it about?

The objectives of the training course are:
- To offer an inclusive approach to teaching, learning and assessment of
(accessible) basic ICT skills, aiming at inclusive education (people with
disabilities within regular education) and have this inclusive approach also
embedded in daily teaching practices;
- To help trainees understand the basic ICT challenges but also competences
related to disabilities;
- To help trainees understand and implement the teaching of basic ICT skills
to people with disabilities and how to accommodate for them;
- To help trainees understand the cultural and social differences linked to
people with disabilities coming from different backgrounds (e.g. migrants,
refugees, ethnic communities, people from outside Europe or intra-EU
mobility);
- To help trainees experience, through visits to local VET centres, how
local organizations for people with disabilities, as well as disabled
individuals themselves, address the issues of acquiring basic ICT skills and
how this can consequently improve their employability potential;
- To help trainees acquire hands-on experience by role-playing in
implementing accessible teaching practices.

will be available in Dutch, English, Greek and Lithuanian!
