CReLES – Supporting Culturally Responsive Leadership and Evaluation in Schools (In progress 2019–2022)
In 2019 MCU became engaged in the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership project Supporting Culturally Responsive Leadership and Evaluation in Schools (CReLES), which relates to the increased immigration into the countries of Europe with the consequent range of diversity of cultures among students in schools.
In line with the current influx of migrants and refugees to Europe and the international Sustainable Development Goal of inclusive and equitable education for all, this project aims to prioritise the inclusive education of migrant students and the school leadership that facilitates that inclusive education.
This project focuses on the support and strategies needed in all levels of school leadership in order to facilitate the needs of a diverse multicultural classroom and a diverse multicultural school. The main objective of the project is the enhanced school inclusion of students with a migration background through the identification and dissemination of innovative practice in culturally responsive school leadership, the development of frameworks for the evaluation of culturally responsive leadership as well as the provision of high-quality training resources in the form of leader training and the development of a MOOC for school leaders and those interested stakeholder groups outside of the project.
