3.4. People with disabilities should be involved in teacher training and other aspects of education planning and management



Why do people with disabilities need to be involved in teacher training?

A key reason why teacher training often fails to address inclusive education – and in particular the inclusion of students with disabilities – is because those involved in planning and running teacher training do not have disabilities, and often have no direct experience of working with people with disabilities.


There is a growing movement towards community involvement in and management of schools. If this is to be successful it must include representation from diverse groups in the community, including people with disabilities. This needs to be further extended to ensure that teacher education, and the ongoing support and professional development of teachers, is done with the involvement of people with disabilities (and people from other marginalised groups too).
As we saw above, teachers/trainee teachers need their training to be practical and contextually relevant. This means training needs to be designed with input from a range of stakeholders living, working and studying in the communities in which the teachers will work – and this must include inputs from people with disabilities.
