The programme will be delivered by a team from the Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences, specialising in Special Education. They are joined by a team from Ruskin Mill Trust in the UK, comprising academics, researchers, pedagogues and practitioners. The programme also benefits from input, in the form of guest lecturers and tutors, from notable researchers and practitioners from the fields of Special Needs Education, transformative learning, and practical skills pedagogic approaches.
