Teacher`s Empowerment on Teaching and Learning strategies
As part of our responsibility to promote teaching methods in inclusive schools, we are building the capacity of all teachers, that is, those with a special education profession and those without such education by conducting explanatory seminars, workshops and special meetings. The service reaches both in-service teachers and out-of-service teachers.
Heads of Schools receives special trainings the opportunity to be empowered to be leaders of change through effective leadership that considers the needs of all teachers and students. Similarly, OSNET provides learning and assistive aids for students with disabilities such as projectors, computers, wheelchairs, notebooks, pens, hearing aids, white sticks, magnifying glasses and so on.
Through our special education clubs in schools, we do capacity building programs to both disabled and non-disabled in leadership, live in a state of equality, help each other, recognize their rights, have the courage to express themselves and also become future activists of human rights.
Furthermore, OSNET offers extra courses on vocational training and entrepreneurship in Primary and Secondary schools. The goal is to enable disabled and non-disabled students to have knowledge that will help them become self-employed after finishing school.
Advocating for change
OSNET implements mobilization activities against negative attitudes towards people with disabilities in all social spheres, including participation in leadership, education, health and economy. We use various platforms including special education clubs in schools, seminars and workshops for parents, teachers, organizations, students themselves and policy makers.
Sign Language Trainings
Sign language has been one of our main focuses in unlocking communication between deaf and non-deaf students and their teachers. Language is the main tool of communication so without communication there is no understanding among each other. OSNET conducts sign language training in 89 secondary and primary schools. We have made 3012 sign language interpreters for 2019-2023 and those trainees were given certificates of sign language participation
