Description

The "Inclusive Playgrounds: Teacher Training Programme" (PINC) project focuses on improving the skills of students in Education and Sports Science for inclusive intervention in childhood playgrounds.

This project is in line with the European Disability Strategy 2010-2020 (European Commission, 2010) which sets the general objective "to empower disabled children so that they can enjoy all their rightsan d fully benefit from their participation in society" and as a specific objective of the Education and Training area, "to ensure that pupils with disabilities benefit from an accessible education system".

Through this Strategic Partnership, we will contribute to the improvement of Higher Education in areas such as accessibility, participation, equity, employment, education and training, social protection, health and external actions.

There is a shortage of academic training and specific publications in Europe for educators in general, and for physical-sports educators specifically, on strategies for educational inclusion in the recreational environment. Job opportunities for students in Education and Sport Sciences are related to profiles of leisure and free time educators in sports clubs or associations, or profiles of teachers in primary or secondary schools.

In these areas they will deal with children with disabilities and at that time, it will be their responsibility to intervene in the situation in a way that favours inclusion and the healthy enjoyment of leisure by these children.

In this sense, there is a need for education, training and youth systems that are more in line with the needs and opportunities offered by the labour market (Erasmus+ Programme Guide, 2019). However, it is observed in different European countries that the university curricula of the Degrees in Education and Sports Sciences do not provide sufficient compulsory training to enable future educators to develop skills to deal with the problems they will encounter in the labour market related to attention to diversity and social inclusion in periods of recreation in childhood.

To respond to this need, the PINC project will create a training plan on inclusion through play during recreational periods of primary education for students of Education and Sport Sciences. To this end, the good practices and experiences of each of the participating organisations will be collected in order to develop a joint intervention model that strengthens the European dimension and allows for the permanent implementation of successful educational models that last over time.




The main objective of the project will be the elaboration and design of the following products:

- GUIDE FOR STUDENTS OF PINC TRAINING. It will provide students with a deep understanding of the fundamentals of an inclusive education sensitive to children with disabilities. The guide will focus on promoting inclusive attitudes and values and not just knowledge and skills. It will also lay the theoretical-practical rationale of teamwork and the use of resources from the immediate environment for such purposes.

- GUIDE FOR THE TEACHER OF PINC TRAINING that allows the efficient acquisition of competences to the students of Education and Sport Sciences and improves their perception of competence in the face of the inclusive challenge.

- GUIDE TO RESOURCES AND ACCESSIBILITY STRATEGIES IN RECREATIVE ENVIRONMENTS based on good practices, preparing future teachers to eliminate barriers and facilitate accessibility to the enjoyment of leisure for all children, both in schoolyards and other recreational spaces.


The total development of this training will include activities such as the analysis of the context and the needs of each participating country in terms of inclusion. It will also have among its activities the proposal of ideas, the debate and establishment of agreements between the different member states, as well as the discussion of ideas and approaches for the efficien
