It is one of the key educational policies of Malta to include children with special needs within mainstream education and assigned a Learning Support Assistant on a one-to-one basis or on a share basis depending on the students’ needs.
This course takes place at Gozo College Sannat Primary. The school is an excellent example of how children with autism are integrated into mainstream education. The school has all the resources imaginable to give the children every opportunity to develop.
During the week, you will be immersed in the Maltese education system. The Maltese government’s position on inclusion, as well as that of the school itself, will be clearly outlined. You will be given tools to implement inclusion in your school, inspired by what you see at Sannat Primary.
As cherry on the cake, you will participate in the functioning of the school for one full day. You will attend classes, speak to the teachers and headmaster and experience the warmth of the school at first hand. A unique experience, that’s for sure.
