      This course provides a brief introduction to the field of inclusive education. You can also access the other courses in this collection: An introduction to leadership for governors and Teamwork: an introduction for school governors.

      Regardless of the type of school in which you find yourself, their approach to inclusive education will be a determining factor towards the culture that identifies their learning and teaching environment. Over the next few hours, you will be introduced to some of the principles and arguments that will have informed your school’s approach to inclusivity. You will look at differing perspectives on inclusion, in particular the way that medical and social models have influenced and shaped current thinking. You will also think about barriers to inclusion and the difference between integration and inclusion. In addition, you will consider some of the key documents, such as the Salamanca Statement and the Additional Learning Needs Code, that underpin current thinking in this area.

      This Badged Open Course is part of a collection of training resources for school governors in Wales. The collection was developed by The Open University in Wales with an aim to develop a range of additional skills and reflections that may assist you in your role as a governor.

      For me I found the course very informative and it opened up issues I was unsure of. I can recount and enlarge on this issue now.
