Country information for Serbia - Teacher education for inclusive education
Since 2015, there have been significant reforms concerning initial teacher education provided in higher education institutions. Links between schools and universities are reinforced, as teachers from schools take part in implementing initial teacher education. The larger universities also provide lifelong learning courses (European Commission, 2016). Since 2009, Serbia has provided in-service professional training for approximately 20,000 teachers to work in classrooms in which learners with disabilities are present (UNESCO Institute for Statistics and UNICEF, 2015).
In-service training of pre-primary, primary and secondary teachers is continuous and included in the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development’s annual plans of activities.
