Disability Inclusion in vocational and higher education: 2019-2022
Monitor inclusion within Kenyan education systems
Disability Inclusion in vocational and higher education, a project founded by the Liliane Foundation and CINOP, aims to increase the inclusion of students with disabilities in vocational and higher education institutes in Kenia. The project includes a pilot of a tool developed by CINOP to assess and monitor inclusion within Kenyan education systems.
CINOP is a Dutch expert organisation in education. Their department ‘Handicap & Study’ has developed a so-called ‘’FlexScan’’ to assess and guide vocational and higher education institutions in the Netherlands to be more inclusive. The FlexScan focuses on the perspective of students, teachers, lecturers, program managers, policymakers, and professionals.
Dutch tool adapted to Kenyan context
For the Disability Inclusion in vocational and Higher Education project, the Liliane Foundation and CINOP will design a contextualised FlexScan to assess and monitor inclusion within Kenyan education systems. The FlexScan will be implemented and facilitated by Cheshire Disability Services Kenya (CDSK), a non-governmental organisation in Kenya and a Strategic Partner Organisation (SPO) of the Liliane Foundation. It implements programmes on rehabilitation and care.
Objectives & results
- Produce a complete contextualised document of the FlexScan, so CDSK can use it in their ambitions and work to achieve more inclusive education in Kenya.
- Create a sustainable platform that connects and professionalises the participating educational institutions and other partners.
- Increase the inclusion of students with disabilities in vocational and higher education institutes in Kenia.
