The main purpose of the SPISEY project is to contribute to the implementation of the European strategy about early school leaving, the Inclusion and Diversity Strategy and the Pillar of Social Rights, especially focusing on school opportunities to a) offer high quality and inclusive education for all and b) improve employment prospects for young citizens with learning difficulties.

In order to obtain the main purpose of the project, the overall objective is to propose a generic and strategic model, which can assist school managers, teachers and other educational staff to foster inclusive education. The following 5 specific objectives have been put forward for the project;

1) to identify how managers, teachers and other educational staff can best be supported on a strategic and practical level to foster inclusive education and schools

2) to develop, adopt and test a European Inclusion Compass, which is a generic inclusive leadership model, which contains concrete guidelines, activity catalogue, policy and implementation recommendations, good practice cases and a supportive facilitation concept to assist in the creation of inclusive education and schools within Europe

3) to initiate the creation of xxx (indsæt antal) inclusive schools within the participating member states, by running pilot projects where school managers, teachers and other educational staff receive training and work actively with the inclusion compass in close collaboration with the project partners

4) to create a European reference frame and knowledge society based on all the results from the project, and

5) to raise awareness and disseminate knowledge and good implementation practice to relevant stakeholders on local, national and European level.
