教育。政府發出綜合部門支持的信號

據北愛爾蘭大臣布蘭登-劉易斯(Brandon Lewis)稱,英國政府將設立一個方案,通過教育來支持北愛爾蘭的進一步融合。

他將在周三以北愛爾蘭為中心的會議上發表講話時對此舉進行評論。

該活動由北愛爾蘭辦公室(NIO)和政府機構威爾頓公園設立,為期三天。

他將告訴與會者,綜合教育的需求目前還沒有得到滿足。

劉易斯先生將說,政府方案將向家長、教師和學生宣傳融合教育的好處。

今年早些時候,斯托蒙通過了一項新的法律,要求教育部(DE)對融合教育給予更多支持。

綜合教育法》意味着教育部必須增加綜合學校的名額,並為在這些學校接受教育的兒童人數設定目標。

NIO的一份聲明說,從周三開始的會議將探討融合教育如何成為 "年輕人機會和權力的關鍵驅動力 "以及政府承諾的Levelling Up的關鍵原則。

討論還將圍繞北愛爾蘭的潛力和對未來幾年需要改變的東西進行質疑。

目前,北愛爾蘭約有7%的學生在近70所正式的綜合學校接受教育,這些學校旨在混合來自新教、天主教和其他背景的學生。

阿爾斯特大學(UU)去年宣布計劃幫助在倫敦德里郡的科萊恩(Coleraine)開辦一所新的綜合小學後學校,招收約1200名學生。

這所學校將是北愛爾蘭的第一所此類學校。


A programme to support greater integration through education in Northern Ireland will be set up by the UK government, according to NI Secretary Brandon Lewis.

He will comment on the move when addressing a conference centred on Northern Ireland on Wednesday.

The event, set up by the NI Office (NIO) and government agency Wilton Park, runs for three days.

He will tell attendees that the demand for integrated education is not currently being met.

Mr Lewis will say the government programme will promote the benefits of integrated education to parents, teachers and pupils.

Earlier this year, a new law passed at Stormont requiring the Department of Education (DE) to give more support to integrated education.

The Integrated Education Act means the department has to increase the number of integrated school places and set targets for the number of children being educated in them.

A statement from the NIO said that the conference, beginning on Wednesday, will explore how integrated education is a "key driver of opportunity and empowerment for young people" and a key principle of the government's commitment to Levelling Up.

Discussions will also centre around Northern Ireland's potential and on questioning what needs to change over the coming years.

About 7% of pupils in Northern Ireland are educated currently in almost 70 formally integrated schools, which aim to mix pupils from Protestant, Catholic and other backgrounds.

Ulster University (UU) announced plans last year to help run a new integrated post-primary school for about 1,200 pupils in Coleraine, County Londonderry.

The school would be the first of its kind in Northern Ireland.
