Completed Project

In order to help people with disabilities and special needs, teachers need to be trained in this field. Hence the launch of this Fundación InteRed project, supported by Fundación MAPFRE, which aims to improve the qualifications of 120 teachers.

The project works on awareness-raising by the technical team of the Poveda Cultural Center in Santo Domingo, and on the elaboration of support materials for the educational program. It also focuses on training the teachers at the Resource Center for Attention to Diversity (CAD) and the Center for Comprehensive Attention to Diversity (CAID). It also envisages the development of a pedagogical guide for teachers.

The project seeks to establish a training process for teaching staff in order for them to go on to reflect these practices in the classes they teach their students. The entire process will be complemented by back-up and support in the classroom to consolidate their learning.

They also propose incorporating training and awareness-raising for the management teams of educational centers, i.e. management and coordinators, educators and counselors, as well as the students’ families.

InteRed is an NGO which was founded in 1992 and promoted by the Institución Teresiana. It serves as a network to exchange ideas and promote solidarity among societal groups, towns and cultures from the north and south. Since its inception, it has taken the long-standing tradition of the Institución Teresiana as its reference and has a social and educational outlook.
