Child welfare is considered a top priority in any modern society. In order to be able to lead as self-determined a life as possible, children with health impairments in particular need special support. In order to make German know-how accessible to the CIS countries, the INTAMT Academy organised a training series entitled “Inclusive upbringing and education of children with disabilities”. At the North Rhine-Westphalian Ministries for Labour, Integration and Social Affairs and for Schools and Further Education, a theoretical basis was first created, which was then deepened in subsequent seminars and workshops. During a visit to an integrative day care centre in Düsseldorf, the director Kim Harris informed the guests about the special features of the facility and provided insights into the daily work. Later on, a seminar took place at the Dortmund Competence Centre for Teacher Training and Teaching/Learning Research (DoKoLL). Here, the education representatives were able to discuss the training and qualification measures for special needs teachers together with Prof. Dr. Tatjana Zimenkova. The series of seminars concluded with visits to the Vocational Training Centre of the Evangelische Stiftung Volmarstein and the Düsseldorf Workshop for Adapted Work (wfaa). Both the special requirements for the training staff, the technical equipment of the workplaces for people with disabilities and their later integration into working life were discussed.
