-Participants of the in-service training focusing on cultural diversity will be experts in developing their own work, work environment, municipality and national level developmental work. ECE staff also work at the municipality level coordinating development related to cultural diversity where the target is developmental work at municipality and national level. Due to that, skills in strategical planning related to multicultural, multilingual and equality in early childhood education are significant. The competences offered in the training will benefit the community, children, families, providers of the ECE services and the ECE professionals.
The aim of the training is that participants adopt tools for developing inclusive ECE. The aim is to deepen the expertise of the participants in understanding cultural diversity in ECE and in cooperating with various parents. Culturally sensitive, sensitivity towards different backgrounds of the children in ECE needs that ECE professionals know diversity education and how to put it into practice. Skills in these issues will have impact on planning, carrying out and developing ECE programs, in leading and in the quality of the programs.
