AHEAD, an organisation that is focused on promoting full access and participation of students with disabilities in further, higher education and employment are hosting their annual international conference, 'Through the looking glass: Reflecting on Inclusion from the boardroom to the classroom' on the 26th and 27th March 2020 in Croke Park, Dublin, Ireland. 

Educational institutions and sport and youth associations in the Reykjanes Peninsula (south-west Iceland) are key-stakeholders in the government-led action-plan aimed at strengthening the area, following the bancruptcy of the airline WOW-Air in the spring. As a follow-up of a meeting on labour and educational issues between Education Minister, Ms. Lilja Alferdsdóttir, and local inhabitants in April, a specific task force was established within the Ministry. Its role is to formulate and gain support for an action-plan, built on the vision of the local population and the government.

The Ironmongers’ Company is providing grants to organisation and projects that aim to help disadvantaged children and young people under the age of 25 to reach their potential. Projects that focus efforts on delivering clearly defined educational benefits to specific groups are of particular interest. Grants range between a few hundred pounds and £10,000.

Funding of £100m for refugee English lessons has been removed from the Adult Education Budget. This has led to refugees feeling lonely, isolated and unable to secure work in the UK. Refugee Action and ESOL providers have carried out studies that expose the struggles faced by refugees. The Department for Education has described plans to implement an ESOL strategy in 2019.

The Free Thinking Programme is a special course designed for survivors of modern slavery and human trafficking. This is an issue that often goes unnoticed in the UK, where we don't expect such crimes to happen. However, with more and more slavery crimes being reported and over 130,000 people living as modern slaves in the UK, it is clearly a much bigger problem than first anticipated. In response, Northern College has delivered the Free Thinking Programme, enabling students who are survivors of modern slavery and human trafficking to gain an education and enjoy part-time residency in the college while they complete their studies. This forms part one of a two-part blog post.

The British Institute of Human Rights has released an online tool to provide information about human rights and enable the user to identify human rights violations when they occur. The tool is especially useful for those with mental health issues or limited mental capacity, as well as their families, carers and formal advocates.

It is a brochure containing guidelines on the Industry 4.0 and Drone Entrepreneurship applied to vocational education and training (VET) students, providing essential information for those who want to start a new business in the fields of Industry 4.0 and/or Drone Industry.

This is an Erasmus+ funded project which aims to design and implement effective training tools for enhancing key skills and competences of (a) highly-skilled refugees and (b) the language teachers who work with them, and so enhance the employability and societal integration of skilled refugees.

The Scottish Funding Council has provided guidance for universities and colleges on funding for upskilling in 2019-2020. Those who will benefit most from using the resource include university / college heads and education leaders, senior university / college staff and those who work in further or higher education financial and funding teams.

The Widening Participation and Lifelong Learning Journal has released a special edition focusing on Supporting Students from Refugee and Asylum Seeker Backgrounds in Higher Education. The journal provides 12 articles that draw on research and innovative practice in the field that aim to encourage a greater focus on refugee and asylum seeker engagement in HE.

Material development studies for special education students include examples of material applied for special education students in different countries. These materials will cause teachers to see different perspectives in their educational processes. In this way, they will develop different ideas for material samples in educational work. The materials used in studies with special education students should be specific to the student. In this case, the inability of the student is very important.
