The second Agency Bi-annual Meeting of 2019 will take place on 4–7 November in Budapest, Hungary, at the kind invitation of the Hungarian Ministry of Human Capacities, State Secretariat of Education.
Bi-annual Meetings offer an opportunity for the Representative Board members and National Co-ordinators from Agency member countries to come together and exchange ideas and practices in inclusive education. They are also a chance for Agency staff members to outline projects and outcomes and gather information from member countries for future Agency work.
Participants will take part in a series of sessions and meetings on a variety of topics, including legislative developments, information dissemination and on-going projects and activities, including work with the European Commission’s Structural Reform Support Service and UNESCO’s Global Education Monitoring (GEM) report.
There will be updates and information on the Preventing School Failure (PSF) and Teachers’ Professional Learning for Inclusion (TPL4I) projects. In separate sessions, country representatives will discuss the Agency’s future role and long-term work programme. They will also look at the next steps in the Changing Role of Specialist Provision (CROSP) project, which focuses on the reorganisation of specialist provision to support the right to inclusive education for all learners.
The next Bi-annual Meeting will be held in Serbia in May 2020.
