Teacher professional learning is a priority for all Agency member countries, for international bodies and for the European Union. The Teacher Professional Learning for Inclusion (TPL4I) project aims to identify the policy elements needed to prepare all teachers to include all learners. These include policies on initial teacher education, induction, continuing professional development, and teacher educators’ learning.
The project team developed an initial mapping grid to gather and categorise Agency member countries’ policy information on teacher professional learning for inclusion. The grid has developed into the current TPL4I Policy Self-Review Tool. The tool indicates different policy priorities. These priorities address policy elements that are important for developing policy to support teacher professional learning for inclusion.
The TPL4I Policy Self-Review Tool’s main components are:
- Vision and main principles of TPL4I policy
- Goals and continuum of support of TPL4I policy
- Capacity building, funding and monitoring of TPL4I policy.
The TPL4I Policy Self-Review Tool is open-source. This means users can adapt it to their own needs and contexts, provided they include a reference to the original source. Policy-makers can use it to review policy on teacher professional learning for inclusion.
