A Pedagogical framework has been developed based upon the special needs training activities of GAIA. This work is closely related to the VETPRO training course. We have carried out research into training methodologies for special needs through the cultural sector and this has resulted in a "good practice publication" highlighting associated pedagogies throughout Europe. We have conducted a needs analysis in order to define the framework and functions of the training course. We have generated content for the curriculum in the form of a series of training courses, that will be used in the testing phase through to finished and validated deliverables. We have also worked closely with the technical developers of the on-line material to provide content and supply constant feedback for the web-based functions of the project. A content workshop is available for the collation and editing of the trainer notes including the translation to all partner languages.
