Education systems need to move from compensatory approaches, towards more pro-active intervention and prevention approaches that increase all schools’ capacity to provide high-quality support to all learners.

The work of the project learning communities has shown the benefits of:

  • measures to address the health and well-being of all learners and support them to recognise that skills and qualities can be developed through appropriately focused hard work and persistence;
  • flexible learning opportunities that provide continuity and progression through the phases of education and ensure the relevance of learning for life and work;
  • shared leadership and increased collaboration among school staff;
  • partnership with parents, carers and families, in order to raise learner aspirations and participation;
  • local community and employers’ involvement to increase curriculum relevance and work opportunities.

Project findings and recommendations from the Raising the Achievement of All Learners in Inclusive Education project can be found in a series of outputs.
