Both UEL and ICEP Europe have a long track record in providing quality programmes in the field of special educational needs in the UK, Ireland, and internationally. The collaboration between the two institutions comes from a shared interest in providing first class provision in higher education that is accessible to international educators. Both UEL and ICEP Europe identified the need to support educators and those working with the increasing diversity of children with additional learning needs in education settings today on an international level. In order to help educators meet these challenges, this programme aims to build upon your existing skills and competencies, thus enhancing the quality of education for children and young people with special and additional learning needs in a variety of settings worldwide.
The programme content is underpinned by the latest research in the field of special education, and ICEP Europe have been at the forefront of research into best practice in education. ICEP Europe was awarded the research tender for a major longitudinal study for the National Council for Special Education (NCSE) in Ireland in collaboration with the University of Northampton and Trinity College, Dublin. The project, which was the largest of its kind in Europe, carried out the most in-depth study of special and inclusive education ever conducted in Ireland. The research team consulted widely with service users and providers in building a picture and case studies of provision across Ireland.
ICEP Europe also lead the development of an assessment tool for measuring the inclusiveness of schools, an innovation which formed the foundation for Irelands Framework for Inclusion (http://www.ncse.ie/publications/InclusiveEducationFramework.asp) , a document designed to provide guidance to all Irish schools on improving their inclusiveness.
UEL and ICEP Europe are equally committed to promoting inclusion and equality for people with diverse needs and learning differences through the provision of the highest quality continuing professional development.
