Why is Inclusive Education So Important?

Inclusive learning and teaching looks at the way schools, classrooms, programmes or lessons are designed so individuals are actively involved. By considering a range of needs, inclusive teaching provides fair access to learning for all.

Our master’s course in Inclusive Education focuses on principles and theories, current policies and best practice, as well as how to use creative solutions to solve complex educational problems. This allows teaching professionals to reach students who are often overlooked in the school system.

The advantages of these teaching methods impact the wider community too by increasing skill acquisition in the next generation. Here are the main benefits of inclusive education and why it’s important in today’s society.

It looks at the needs of individual students

The application of inclusive and special education teaching methods in the classroom allow all students to engage meaningfully with the curriculum. This means that students of all backgrounds and learning abilities have an opportunity to achieve their true potential.

With the right structure in place, children can attend lessons in regular classrooms, preventing segregation or exclusion in the school environment.

It recognises diversity in the community  

One of the main benefits of inclusive education is the recognition and nurture of diversity in communities. It aims to bring different children together in a classroom, allowing everyone the same chance to grow and learn. As a result, it can foster relationships outside of school, boosting cooperation and collaboration in the local area between parents, children and neighbours.

It means no-one is excluded because of their identity   

Inclusivity means that all children receive appropriate programmes for education. Therefore, there will be more participation in co-curricular and extracurricular activities. By ensuring inclusion in early childhood education, schools can give students the best chance of making friends and greater opportunities for interactions with others.

At the University of Bolton, our master’s course helps you explore these issues in detail. Our students are always from a wide range of backgrounds, and we empower everyone to share their own individual experiences and insights. We have been the No.1 in the North West for student satisfaction for the past three years in the Complete University Guide (2021, 2020 and 2019), and we pride ourselves on our reputation for inclusivity.
