Teacher Training towards Inclusive Education

29 teachers graduated the training on inclusive education through project RAISE NE, equipped to make inclusion a reality in 75 government schools in India.
In an effort to realize the universalization of education and ensure that children with disabilities benefit from the Right to Education Act, CBM joined hands with 15 non-governmental organizations in 2016 for the Regional Action on Inclusive Education in the North East (RAISE NE). Two years later, CBM has 29 trained teachers, ready to take on the responsibilities of inclusive education. 

As a part of RAISE NE, a series of sessions on teacher training on inclusive education were conducted with an objective of enhancing the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (Education for All) initiative. The teacher training, conducted by experts from the field of inclusive education, focused on a child-centered teaching approach and the sensitization of teachers towards children with disabilities, letting them develop skills in Universal Design of Learning, Laws and Legislations on Disability, Classroom transactions and curriculum adaptation.

After two years of learning and sharing sessions on Inclusive Education, 29 teachers are set to support 75 government schools in the North East Region and make inclusive and quality education a reality for children with disabilities. A graduation ceremony was held for the 29 teachers from 5 north-eastern states on the 25th of April 2018 in the state of Meghalaya.

Ms. Ngai Sang Ching, teacher from the Centre for Community Initiative in Manipur said, “RAISE has really changed my mind and way of thinking. I now know that inclusive education is not only about children with disabilities but about the diversity and inclusion of all children.”

Ms. Joyshree Devi, a teacher from Ferrando Speech and Hearing Centre in Barapani, Meghalaya mentioned that “RAISE has given me the necessary skills to make our school inclusive and to help the government schools on their way to inclusion.”

CBM hopes that as these teachers go back and join their schools, they will not only impart quality education to every child, but also be role models to other teachers. Ensuring that each child receives an education that empowers them and transform their lives will guarantee them a brighter future where their disabilities will not lead them to a life of poverty.
