* NEW * Inclusive Education Training Guide from CBM

EENET has helped CBM to develop an inclusive education training guide – for CBM staff, partners and other NGOs – that is based around a set of frequently asked questions. Facilitators can use these questions to help them select topics and activities to suit their trainees’ needs and interests. The activities can be used to create anything from a one-hour discussion at a staff meeting to a one-week workshop.

The guide consists of 5 booklets:


A: Inclusive education and CBM
B: Inclusive education and the community
C: Participation and achievement for all learners
D: Education system change.

Each booklet contains background information on each question, activities, handouts, and case studies.

Download the training guide as an accessible PDF.

[NEW] Listening to IDPs to achieve inclusive and equitable quality education

An unprecedented number of people are on the move globally due to conflict, violence, or natural disasters. More focus is put onto refugees and less is on people that have been displaced within their own national borders – internally displaced people (IDPs). This synthesis paper collects research on the situation of IDPs and the outcomes from five INEE round table events held in March-April which had the purpose of listening and working with IDPs.

This paper is available in English, with translations forthcoming in Arabic, French, Portuguese, and Spanish.
