In 2019, nasen were contracted by Cambridge Education to deliver the training, as part of an international initiative funded by the UK’s Department for International Development.
Thanks to this initiative, nasen has trained a team of lead master trainers and over 300 teachers in Pakistan who have gone on to train a further 3000 professionals.
The training has been extremely well-received, and learners have made comments such as: “This is the best experience in my 34 years career in Special Education” and “I have confidence after this that I can put some positive changes in my role as a teacher”.
The training, which is designed to promote inclusive education within the country, helps learners to establish an ideal of personalised and active teaching and learning and adapt to diverse needs in an evolving education community.
