LSAD Clare Street Campus Hosts International Attendees for DECIDE Project Training Programme

From July 22 to August 2 over 35 representatives are attending a customised training programme for the DECIDE (Developing services for Individuals with Disabilities) project in LIT’s LSAD campus in Clare St. The DECIDE project is focused on promoting the right of individuals with special needs in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan to access education, enjoy the right of participation in everyday society and combat discrimination against them by instilling awareness and acceptance in society. The specific objectives of the DECIDE project is the three strand implementation of a comprehensive sustainable DECIDE curriculum:

1. For Teacher Trainer Educators and Lecturers (Universities)
2. For Government and State Employees and Policymakers
3. For NGO’s in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan

The countries involved in this project, which commenced in November 2018 and will be completed in 2021, include Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Greece, Romania Germany, United Kingdom and Ireland.

LIT’s library staff, in particular Padraig Kirby and Jerald Kavanagh, are the key LIT contacts involved in this project through ERASMUS + Capacity Building in the Field of Higher Education funding. Through their involvement in the project they will help plan and develop training programmes supported by ECTS modules to be embedded in curricula in universities. The project will also train civil servants from various relevant governmental bodies such as academics of public administration as well as train staff working in special needs NGOs to ensure maximum transfer effect to society at large.
