Primary and secondary school teachers participated in the Inclusive Education module training

Within the framework of the project “Promoting Inclusive Education for Every Last Child in Mongolia-2”, a three-module training on Inclusive Education has been conducted in target schools of Ulaanbaatar city, Uvurkhangai and Khovd provinces from September 20 to October 15, 2023. The training, which is attended by teachers of grades 4-9, aims to familiarize them with the updated content of the training modules, improve their knowledge of methodology, and facilitate the exchange of experience among teachers.

On October 6, 2023, a module training session on the topic “Methodology for Increasing Parental Involvement in Children’s Education” was held at School No. 39 in Chingeltei District. The goal of the training was to increase awareness and participation of parents, community, and school staff in ensuring equal opportunities for learning and development of each child, as well as to create a culture of equal inclusion in the school.

M. Batkhishig, social worker of School No. 39, who led the training, said: “More than 50 teachers of grades 4-9 of our school are participating in this module training. The focus is on engaging and supporting parents in the process of their children’s education. Knowledge of how to make children participate equally in activities and classes is very important. The project helped primary school teachers gain skills and experience in working with children with special needs. On the other hand, lower-secondary grade teachers learned to work individually, support, and communicate face-to-face with children with autism, hearing impairments, or high intellectual ability. Teachers and parents understand each other better and inclusive activities in our school have become more effective.”

N. Suren, a history and social studies teacher at School No. 39, said that after attending the training, she would conduct personality tests of her students and pay more attention to the development of their left and right brain hemispheres. She believes that in this way it will be possible to identify children with special needs and learning difficulties, work with them, and improve their learning and social skills.

Ariunaa, training manager of lower-secondary grade students at school No. 39

Save the Children in Mongolia has been implementing the project on Inclusive Education funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan at School No. 39 since 2018. According to Ariunaa, the training manager of the lower-secondary grade students, this school has achieved many positive results. “In the past, inclusive education was understood as a problem only for children with disabilities. Our teachers now realize that all children, regardless of parental control level, religious, ethnic, or cultural differences or learning disabilities, need equal access to education. As inclusive education has become a necessity, our teachers feel the need to improve their methodological knowledge in this area and actively participate in training” says Ariunaa.
