All the Diocesan Schools in Macao have joined to provide inclusive education by the academic year of 2020/2021. In order to facilitate a smooth transition and aid the Diocesan Schools in developing their inclusive and special education service, as well as to promote collaboration and experience sharing among the said schools concerning inclusive and special education, the Diocesan Catholic Education Commission has set up the new "Special Education Development Team" under its existing office structure in September 2020, with the specific purpose of providing support to the Diocesan Schools, and assisting them in organising school-based teachers’ training and exchange activities on a regular basis.
In the current phase, the support provided by the team focuses on the following areas:
Cost of service and arrangement
The support service is provided to the Diocesan Schools free of charge.
Request for service is advised to be made in advanced as early as possible for better arrangement.
The requests are attended to on a “first-come, first-served” basis,
the Commission Office apologises for any inconvenience caused in case of unavailability due to prior arrangements.
