Special and Additional Learning Needs

The programme content is underpinned by the latest research in the field of special education, and ICEP Europe have been at the forefront of research into best practice in education. ICEP Europe was awarded the research tender for a major longitudinal study for the National Council for Special Education (NCSE) in Ireland in collaboration with the University of Northampton and Trinity College, Dublin. The project, which was the largest of its kind in Europe, carried out the most in-depth study of special and inclusive education ever conducted in Ireland. The research team consulted widely with service users and providers in building a picture and case studies of provision across Ireland.
