Detailed description of project Back

The EU welcomes the willingness of Jordan to improve and promote the access of disabled people to education and employment, their access to information and adequate health care systems, their mobility without facing neither physical nor social obstacles, as well as to protect and ensure their full and equal enjoyment of rights, just as the rest of people, in areas such as the participation in public life and social welfare. In this context, the new programme in support to the Second Phase of the Education Reform (23 Million Euros) under preparation foresees special education as one of its focal areas continuing the work done in the first phase of the education reform.

Under Component 4 of ERfKE II, there is a special focus to improve the services for the students with special needs. The specific objective of this subcomponent is to expand access to quality education programs and services relevant to students with special needs. This subcomponent consists of 5 areas of intervention: (i) review and updating of policies, regulations, procedures and practices; (ii) institutional development of central and field directorates; (iii) development and provision of quality learning programs, services and resources; (iv) teacher training and awareness rising; and (v) construction and renovation of facilities and equipment.

The objective of the assignment is to contribute to increase the access to special education programmes and services for students with special needs.

The specific objectives are:

  • To support the development of the study “Baseline Assessment of Access to Appropriate Programs and Services for the Students with Special Needs”;
  • To assess the EU interventions in the field of special education (with special attention to those Programme 2006/018208 “Support to the National Education Strategy”).
