Inclusive education is high on the agenda of many countries. Article 24 of the UNCRPD recognises the right of people with disabilities to education by ensuring an inclusive education system at all levels together with lifelong learning.

Additionally, the European Disability Strategy 2010-2020 points out that access to quality education promotes full participation of people in society and improves their quality of life. Inclusive education promotes the development of skills and talents of people with disabilities, who are therefore able to build upon their potential and can live a life as active citizens, promoting non-discrimination and fostering self-determination. The “Estonian Lifelong Learning Strategy 2020” points out that there is a need to change the approach in teaching and learning and become much more person-centred to achieve inclusion in education and in society. Education systems must contribute to develop a wide range of skills that are needed for participation in society and the labour market. Every person must be supported on their way to become an open-minded lifelong learner by offering a possibility to acquire knowledge and skills and realise their creative potential. The change in the approach to teaching and learning promotes a model of education tailored to the needs, previous knowledge, potential and interest of every individual student.

EPR, Astangu Vocational Rehabilitation Centre and Foundation Innove have decided to organise this awareness- raising event on the topic of inclusive education in Estonia to discuss and promote inclusion and the implementation of person-centred approach in vocational education.
