The vision of a more equitable education system requires teachers who are equipped with the competences to meet a range of diverse needs.

Teacher education for inclusion – equipping all teachers to meet the increasingly diverse needs of learners – makes a major contribution to a range of policy issues, including addressing educational disadvantage and early school leaving, raising achievement and breaking down barriers experienced by vulnerable groups.

The Teacher Education for Inclusion (TE4I) Agency project identified four core values as the basis for the necessary competences for teachers working in inclusive education:

  • valuing pupil diversity
  • supporting all learners
  • working with others
  • continuing personal professional development

Project findings and recommendations from the TE4I project and the Profile of Inclusive Teachers can be found on the project web area
