Social Inclusion Education in Georgia
Currently, in Georgia, the “Social Inclusion Education in Georgia” project is being implemented, with a focus on the priority of “equal opportunities in education.” The project comprises two modules.
The first module aims to improve the infrastructure of educational institutions, with a specific focus on the needs of individuals with disabilities. As part of this task, we are collaborating with St. King Tamar University of the Patriarchate of Georgia. We are procuring equipment to support the education of individuals with disabilities, educational tools, and software that enhances education, among other resources.
The second module builds upon the first by establishing the Stephen William Hawking Inclusive Career Counseling Center. The center’s objective is to support individuals with disabilities and those at risk of exclusion. Throughout the project’s duration, the center will operate and promote its services widely.
Simultaneously, we will conduct training activities for the Georgian teaching staff. Initially, the faculty of St. King Tamar University of the Patriarchate of Georgia will receive training in four key areas: Utilization of newly acquired equipment, Inclusive education, New technologies and IT tools, Future competencies.
These training sessions will also extend to the staff and students of 20 other educational institutions recruited during the project’s implementation. Teachers will undergo training in new technologies, future competencies, and inclusive education, while students will have the opportunity to work with innovative equipment.
