An innovative project , co ordinated by Leeds Beckett University in the UK, will see the Complex Needs modules translated into Spanish , German, Turkish, and Bulgarian! This development , funded by the European Union Erasmus Programme, affirms the high quality and innovative nature of these materials.
The focus of the Project will be staff training in the field of Intellectual Disability , and will be co ordinated by Nick Mitchell , Principal Programme Consultant at Leeds Beckett university. Jo Egerton , who worked on the original Complex Needs Module Project in the UK, will be the Research Fellow for this European Project.
Details of the Project as linked below.
Professor Barry Carpenter, who was Director of the original Complex Needs Research Project in the UK, and who oversaw the development of the original training modules in English ( http://www.complexneeds. org.uk
), said at the inaugural meeting of the European Project Group, itide, “ This is a marvellous opportunity to bring to staff working with children with Intellectual Disabilities across Europe, the innovative and groundbreaking work that the Team behind the original modules put together. I am delighted to think that our legacy will have such a potentially transformative impact.”
Pupil Voice in Review Meetings is a really important element. In this clip, taken from the Complex Needs training materials, ( http://www.complexneeds.org.uk), Sophia attends and contributes to her review meeting.
