Inclusive education a pathway to attain social inclusion

Tirana, 30 June 2017 – A regional workshop to introduce UNICEF’s Teacher Preparation Toolkit on inclusive education as the basis for reforming pre-service teacher education has concluded today in Tirana. During the last two days, the inclusive education theme has gathered teachers and educators from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, Serbia and Tajikistan to discuss how best university programmes can prepare teachers on inclusive education.


Despite ongoing reforms, Albania’s under-resourced education system is struggling to improve equity and quality. Children face many barriers to school participation and learning. Inclusive education seeks to address the diverse learning needs of all children. This is further supported by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, which states that all children have the right to receive the kind of education that does not discriminate on the basis of disability, ethnicity, language, gender or capabilities.
