project description

Supporting Inclusion and Diversity in Teaching (SIDiT) is a joint project between organizations, institutes and schools in Europe with an expertise in education; created to provide resources and training opportunities to teachers, so that they engage in more inclusive teaching. Our partners are located in Greece, Belgium, Ireland, Italy and Croatia.

In Europe nowadays, the education of students with a migrant background is a dynamic and prevalent field. While schools become more diverse and welcome children with different socio-economic, ethnic, cultural, religious and language background, their inclusion in the classroom remains a challenge for teachers.

Our premise is that inclusion within the classroom is a vital first step for learners to acquire the mind-set and skills they will need to successfully integrate in increasingly broad social groups and also society as a whole.

goals

The goal is to create inclusive classrooms where students will be able to participate at, interact and communicate with each other, while developing their skills
