Statped’s mission statement is an important strategic document for our work and activity. Together with the annual budget allocations and allocation letter from the Norwegian Directorate for Education and Training, the mission statement indicates the direction for Statped as a knowledge organisation and service provider.
We make every effort to deliver work of good quality, and to make our knowledge and expertise available. We are concerned that our work should have an effect – should make a difference – both for the users and for society. We hope that the mission statement reflects precisely that.
Inclusion is the overarching perspective in this mission statement. Every human being needs to be part of a community. Social belonging is an important framework for individual growth and professional and academic development. This contributes to enabling everyone to use their competence and potential in collaboration with others.
Being a part of the community in kindergarten, school, education, work and leisure increases the opportunity for more people to contribute actively in society.
In the mission statement, we describe six areas of priority, in which the perspective of inclusion is given a central role in the period from 2017-2020. We hope that the mission statement will reach a large audience, and that it will contribute to making Statped’s work well known and used.
I hope you will enjoy reading the mission statement!
