Infographic: Voices into Action

screenshot of the VIA infographic

This infographic was developed as part of the Voices into Action (VIA) activity. It presents the VIA Framework for Meaningful Participation. Policy-makers, school leaders, teachers and other stakeholders can use the framework to encourage meaningful participation of learners and families in educational decision‑making across all education levels.

Changing the role of specialist provision towards supporting inclusive education is closely related to ensuring the rights of all learners to high-quality inclusive education.
Policy can build capacity for teacher professional learning for inclusion in various ways, including collaborative approaches and providing adequate funding and effective monitoring.
Policy must review goals and consider competence areas for teacher professional learning for inclusion, and ensure a continuum of support for all teachers, schools and higher education institutions.
To prepare all teachers for inclusion, all educators must have access to a coherent and continuous range of professional learning opportunities focusing on equity and inclusion.
Data analysis reveals the need to further enable specialist provision to act as a resource for mainstream provision and to equip stakeholders to implement inclusive education.
Policy developments in governance mechanisms are needed to support co-operation between specialist and mainstream provision at all levels.
Four cross-sectoral policy areas (governance, funding, capacity building and quality assurance mechanisms) need further development to effectively support the changing role of specialist provision in supporting mainstream schools to be inclusive.
Preventing school failure involves developing an inclusive system where all learners – including those at risk of failure and most vulnerable to exclusion – receive a high-quality education.
