Reviews about this course

Really interesting course about inclusion. It makes clear what it is and gives you a starting point to design an inclusive environment in your school. Dynamic and flexible lessons that make it easy and motivating.

Núria Monteagudo Martorell

A remarkable course that helps every teacher to perceive the significance of inclusive education and the strategies that are needed to support diversity that arises in every classroom. Through interaction within the group a high level of combining theory and practice is achieved by designing several activities and lesson plans that ensure access to curricula for all our students. Surely my experience last April in 2016 was so motivating that I would suggest it strongly to all other collegues!

Foteini Tsioutsia

Really valuable knowledge and information from an excellent trainer in a worthwhile and friendly environment. A motivating course that I would suggest to all other colleagues!

Konstantinos Sapountzis

The course eas very well organised. My compliments to the EuroPass, they were very professional with informations prior to course. But most of all I would like to thanks our group lider Dr. Dimitris Zisimos who is an exceptional professor. He expertly teached and facilitated our work during the course.

I participated with pleasure at the Barcino School course, in Barcelona, ​​near the Industrial Park. The course was interesting, well structured and presented in an interactive manner by Ms. Foteini Tsioutsia, our trainer.

I am very happy I have chosen this course and this location as a way of improving my teaching skills in an inclusive educational environment, as the one we have in our school. Everybody at Europass SRL is very helpful and ready to respond to any request or issue we may encounter. I recommend this course to all those who still need information on how to deal with classroom diversity and disadvanteged learners. You will become a new, “inclusive” teacher after this experience!
