Country information for Slovakia - Teacher education for inclusive education
Teacher training and education focus on different educational areas and professional development. The training focuses on how to increase the level of a particular group of pupils (e.g. pupils from a socially disadvantaged background; pupils from Roma communities). The issue of understanding and supporting learners with diverse and additional educational needs is included in each university accredited training programme. Initial teacher education also includes preparation for work in partnership with families.
The Methodological and Pedagogical Centre provides most of the in-service training courses for teachers all around the country. Other accredited organisations can offer in-service training (Sources: Raising the Achievement of All Learners in Inclusive Education – Slovak Republic Country Report; IECE – Slovak Republic Country Survey Questionnaire).
