The Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities and Rethink Ireland are holding an event on Friday 27th October 2023 – 9:30 – 13:30 at the Trinity Business School, Trinity College Dublin, 182 Pearse Street, Dublin 2, DO2 F6N2.
This event aims to commemorate and reflect upon the remarkable progress made in inclusive education for individuals with intellectual disabilities over the past two decades within Trinity College Dublin.
Over the past 20 years, Trinity College has been a leader in the field of inclusive education. Developing from an initial pilot course in 2004, the Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities has evolved to become a national and international best practice leader, creating a model of education that allows students to fulfil their potential through their academic, work placement and college life experience.
Following registration and an opportunity to connect over teas and coffees, there will be a welcoming address and speeches from special guests, before a launch into three thematic conversation salons hosted by TCPID students and graduates on the subjects of the academic experience, the college life experience, and the pathways to opportunity following college.
Then after reconvening participants will share the learnings from the morning, and reflect on the actions needed to grow the opportunities for inclusive higher education across the country and to address the barriers that exist for the young people now and in the future.
