Welcome to the Inclusive Education Knowledge Centre!
Education is key in allowing each of us to reach our human potential and is the first step in developing an inclusive society. Article 24 of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD) fully recognises the rights of persons with disabilities to education, without discrimination. Therefore the provision and facilitation of inclusive education opportunities is a crucial part of the work of specialised and mainstream service providers.Currently this database is under construction.

The European Association of Service Providers for Persons with Disabilities (EASPD) and 13 European partners worked between 2012-2015 to develop INVESTT - a strategy at EU level for implementing a universal design for learning and innovative actions in the regular vocational education and training system (VET).
Four vocational schools in Europe - Austria, Belgium, Norway and Slovenia - piloted new approaches in VET programmes together with local service providers and researchers.
These resources provide research on VET in Austria, Belgium, Norway and Slovenia as well as an EU Strategy on Inclusive Vocational Education and Specialised Tailor-made Training.
