Special Needs Education Project

The mission of the Ministry of Education, Science, Technology and Innovation is to ensure equitable access to quality education for all our citizens so that their potential is fully realised; to assist in the development of responsible citizens who are disciplined, industrious, creative and confident and who can function effectively in a modern society.

Project Summary

The Ministry of Education, Science, Technology, and Innovation is seeking to move towards the implementation of key teacher training activities that can enhance existing special education programmes. Teachers in special education including those teachers of visually impaired and blind students and students who are hearing impaired and deaf will require specialised training through funding provided for this project in order to adequately provide instruction and care for severely challenged students. The availability of trained people within the system will facilitate the deployment of an adequate number of specialists who can cater to children with varied challenges.
