Second Meeting ICCEP Project
Led by PI, Dr. Martin Brown the meeting focused on the presentation the country governance profiles that are central to the development of the inter-cultural community evaluation and planning structures that are at the heart of the project. Project partners from Austria, Turkey, Norway and Ireland provided detailed outlines of the manner in which their respective education systems address issues of governance and examined how the increasing diversity of their national contexts has impacted on this.
The project aims to develop a community-based planning and evaluation system, referred to as ICCEP where schools and other stakeholders collaborative in networks for the improvement of migration background students and a member of the network or an external body act as a facilitator and mediator during the ICCEP process. The term ICCEP means involving all stakeholders in the process of evaluation and planning. In this project, the education governance systems and the underpinning intercultural policies and documents of the participating countries will be reviewed. Teachers’, school leaders’ and other sectoral support agencies survey responses will lead towards developing a conceptual map of ICCEP. and the development of a framework of quality indicators and the detailed mechanism of ICCEP. Through case studies, the consortium will explore what training needs should be provided to upskill the existing competencies of members of the network. For this reason, this project includes developing a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) and a toolkit of essential resources to plan for and integrate migrant students in communities. It will also involve training on the mechanisms required for ICCEP
