Event on "Equitable financing for disability-inclusive education" in Brussels

A new project has been launched with support from the European Union’s ERASMUS+ fund, exploring the range of support offered in different education systems: the IMAS project aims to establish a common framework to analyze the work, career and conditions of learning and support assistants in Europe. Furthermore, it will analyze the current state of the assistants’ job environment in the partner countries and work towards an ideal version to support disabled students rights foreseen the UN Convention for the Rights of Persons with disabilities.

The kick-off meeting of IMAS took place in Gleisdorf, Austria on the 10th and 11th November. During the meeting, the partners exchanged practices of the various countries regarding inclusive education in schools and especially the role and conditions of learning and support assistants in each country’s educational system. They also agreed on the specific dimensions to study and compare the role of learning and support assistant.
