News / Albania’s primary school children to benefit from a new joint project between the EU and the Ministry of Education
On 27 September, EU Ambassador Christiane Hohmann and Minister of Education and Sports, Evis Kushi, launched the two-year “EU for Inclusive Education” project at the Institute of Deaf Students in Tirana. The project will help improve education quality and access to the system of primary education in Albania.
The project will introduce modern competence-based learning and inclusive education methods via new curricula, training for teachers, and support to psychosocial services in schools. In addition, the project will assist two schools for hearing-impaired and visually-impaired children to become national resource centres.
“Investing in children is investing in our future. The EU is already rebuilding 60 earthquake-hit schools in Albania, and today I am proud to launch this initiative with the Ministry of Education and Sports to provide 135,000 primary school children in grades 1-5 in Albania with modern, inclusive and competency-based education. This includes training for teachers, and national resource centres for deaf or blind children. Our goal is clear: to give Albanian children the best opportunities for their future.” said EU Ambassador to Albania, Christiane Hohmann.
Included in the 135,000 children who will benefit from the project are over 130 students attending the schools for hearing-impaired and visually-impaired children.
