In this lesson learners will explore the meaning of inclusion and gain a better understanding of its scope. They will look at the barriers to include and explore resources for inclusion. This course is generally intended for learners working in nursery settings.

Learning outcomes:

  • Learners will learn to use inclusion in settings to help the development of communities where all people are equally valued and have the same opportunities for participation 
  • Learners will learn about identifying the barrier that stop people from participating fully, understanding what causes these barriers, and finding solutions to overcome them
  • Learners will learn that it is important that practitioners try to find ways to adapt activities and include those with additional needs so that they can participate in activities along with their peers
  • Learners will learn ways in which practitioners can promote diversity, equality and inclusion, and support others to do so

Advantages of this course: 

Inclusion means involving all children, young people and adults in mainstream society, including those with disabilities and/or learning difficulties. 

Legislation and statutory guidance are in place to ensure that all children have the right to reach their full potential and have an excellent start to life irrespective of their background, race, colour or gender. This means they should not face discrimination. Discrimination can have a damaging effect on children, and on adults.

This course explains more about what is meant by inclusion, and offers furthers information about those individuals who might potentially not be included. The learner will see ways to promote diversity, equality and inclusion and support others to do so, and see how to challenge discrimination.

Additional activities encourage the learner to reflect on the learning. There is also suggested extra reading that gives both practical information and links to websites to expand knowledge.
