CROSS-GERMANY KNOWLEDGE-EXCHANGE

Young adults' service impresses


Under the headline 'Fortschritt Niederpoking is starting a quality offensive', the Bavarian free newspaper Kreisbote remarks that the German Federal Government is moving slowly on inclusion. None the less, following a chance meeting at a conference in Berlin last November, this Fortschritt in Bavaria (South Germany) has begun a collaborative knowledge-exchange arrangement with another non-profit organisation, Adelby 1, a service for children and young people in Flensburg (North Germany) with a focus on inclusion.

Staff from Flensburg have been visiting Starnberg and have been being particular impressed by Starnberg's supervised off-site young adults' residential group though, as their leader said:

I have to admit, I've never heard of Conducting Education before.

While competent ministers in Berlin are still formulating the law on quality development in child care, the FortSchritt has already begun the quality campaign. It has agreed with 'Adelby 1' for a trans-Germany transfer of knowledge.

The visit from Flensburg is the beginning of a series of exchanges and counter-visits:

We want to look at the subjects of educational quality and inclusion as well as the administrative processes and learn from each other.

Starnberg's young adults' project

This was outlined on Conductive World some six weeks ago:

It is nice to see this CE inclusion project's being acknowledged outside the CE sector. One eagerly awaits wider reporting of its details.
