NICIE offers a training day for staff new to integration. Leaders, teachers and classroom assistants are encouraged to attend.
At the start of the day, participants are asked to write down their expectations of the event. The majority of hopes fall into the following areas:
- increasing knowledge of integration and the integrated ethos
- increasing awareness of the role of NICIE
- gaining practical ideas for the classroom
- sharing good practice
- meeting others /networking
The training is designed to deliver on these expectations as well as placing an emphasis on good practice. Good practice workshops are facilitated by serving practitioners who are open to sharing details for their journey through Integrated Education.
If you are new to Integrated Education and feel you would benefit from gaining insight into how the ethos is lived out within your school, please contact NICIE on 028 9097 2910 and express an interest in attending training.
