urt logoContracting authority: Operational Programme Prague – Growth Pole of the Czech Republic

Duration: 10/2016–6/2018


Description and goals: The project with reg. no. CZ.07.4.68/0.0/0.0/15_005/00000 is focused on enhancing competencies of pedagogical staff and other workers who are working in this field for inclusive, innovative and high-quality teaching with a mutual exchange of experience in this field.

Its aim is to provide methodical support in the implementation of inclusive principles in primary and secondary schools in Prague through further professional education of pedagogical staff that works with self-experience and it is built on the principle, Teacher in the role of Creator. This support will be provided to 80 teachers approx.

A system of pedagogical work and philosophy provided with this course is specific due to its emphasis on the teacher himself/herself because any instructions or techniques will not replace pedagogical intuition, self-esteem and the possibility of self growth that can be used not to easily burn out or to be more self confident in any unexpected teaching situation that children with special needs may bring.

We want to support or start the mechanism of change in the involved schools that will lead to more satisfied teachers and children who will get an equal chance for success thanks to an innovative approach transfered through the seminars.
