The Social ModelOur training is based on the thinking of the disabled people's movement, in particular the social model of disability and the principles of inclusive education, developed in North America.
The social model views the discrimination and predjuice experienced by people who have a physical, mental, sensory or hidden impairment as rooted in the barriers of attitude, environment and organisation of society.
Inclusion is a process of whole school and college change, where barriers are systematically reduced. An ethos is developed where all pupils and students are welcomed, supported and valued, and relationships are intentionally built.
