The programme was developed with support from the US Agency for International Development (USAID).
UNICEF supported the development of a training-of-trainers programme for inclusion of refugee, migrant, asylum seeker and stateless children in education, in partnership with the Bureau for Development of Education and in coordination with UNHCR. The programme was developed specifically for staff from the Resource Centres (former special schools) as they are the relevant expert bodies in charge of providing support to teachers to ensure inclusion of all children in mainstream schools. A total of 50 education professionals participated in the training sessions. The Training of Trainers from the Resource Centres took place on 20 and 21 January in Skopje, while the capacity-development of teachers who work with children in need of such support took place on 24 and 25 January.
