27 February 2019 | 10:30 - 11:00 | English | Developing the Inclusion Agenda: Implications for Leadership in International Schools

The UAE is on the path to become an inclusive, barrier free, rights based society that promotes, protects and ensures the success of all groups of students by 2020. One of the most important ways associated with this inclusion agenda is to develop world-class schools led by sustained, insightful, and highly capable leadership who have a clear understanding of what inclusion for all looks like and how to achieve it. This session looks at how Senior and Middle leaders can turn this vision into reality.
