About this event

  • 5 days 11 hours
  • Mobile eTicket

Please note that each participating service will receive resources that have been carefully chosen to encourage, promote, and foster equality, diversity, and inclusion in their environment!

Due to increased CPD requirements under the Core Funding Quality Action Plan, SDCCC are delighted to be able to offer the Diversity, Equality and Inclusion training programme.

It is a 15 hour programme, run over a full day Saturday and 2 late afternoons.

  • Saturday 10th June - 9.30am-4.30pm
  • Tuesday 13th June - 4-8pm
  • Thursday 15th June - 4-8pm

The training falls under the Access and Inclusion Model, which as you know, supports children with disabilities to reap the full benefits of free pre-school education. Level 1 of AIM sets out to foster and embed a strong culture of inclusion to support all children’s maximum participation in the Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) programme.

The training will cover;

  • The National Diversity, Equality and Inclusion Charter
  • Understanding Diversity, Equality and Inclusion
  • Developing an anti-bias approach in early years
  • The physical environment and its role in inclusive practice

Under this level, a new Inclusion Charter has been developed. Updated Diversity, Equality and Inclusion Guidelines have been published and a nationwide training programme on these Guidelines is currently being rolled out by the CCCs to pre-school practitioners.

Participation in the Diversity, Equality and Inclusion training programme is not mandatory. However, participation is strongly encouraged by the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth as completion of this training will assist pre-school providers to deliver an inclusive pre-school experience, which is the cornerstone of AIM.
