About the project: SPISEY is an Erasmus+ project with partners from Denmark, Finland, France, Spain and the UK. The project examined ways of fostering social inclusion in participating schools in the five countries, building on the Inclusion Compass, a management tool originally designed in the Danish context. The plan was for all countries to recruit primary and secondary schools and work with the Inclusion Compass to guide planning for inclusion. However, Covid-19 impacted these plans, and we conducted the study within our own institution, translating the aims and focus of the project to inclusion in HE. This is the project’s website: https://www.spisey-project.eu/ (currently under development)
