IBE is in UNICEF's "Accessible School for All" project

The Educational Research Institute, UNICEF and the Ministry of Education and Science are implementing a new educational project called "Accessible School for All." The project aims to reach up to 30,000 children through its activities.

The main objective of the project is to improve the competence of specialist teachers – pedagogues, psychologists, special educators and speech therapists. They will gain knowledge in providing appropriate support to children, students, parents and teachers.

Activities will be conducted to ensure a sense of community among children and students, with a special focus on refugee students from Ukraine, and to build a friendly atmosphere in the classroom and school as part of protecting the mental health of children and adolescents.

As many as 560 educational institutions (schools, kindergartens, psychological-educational counselling centres, teacher training centres) and 1120 teachers will be invited to participate in the project. They will be prepared to act as advisors on the accessibility of teaching. In this way, the project plans to reach up to 30,000 children over its course.

The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) was established in 1946 by the United Nations General Assembly to bring aid to children and mothers in countries devastated by World War II. Its activities are guided by the provisions of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
