Disabled people’s inclusion within UK technical and vocational education and training

Effective technical and vocational education and training (TVET) is central to providing people facing disability-related barriers the life chances to sustain and to ensure they can participate to the fullest extent possible. The benefits of effective skills development for disabled people include improved income, health and well-being for individuals and have broader social and economic impact.

Our report explores a range of TVET models that ensure good learning outcomes associated with meaningful employment for disabled people. It includes case studies from policy and practice that illustrate successful UK approaches, provides analysis and makes recommendations to the relevant stakeholders. 

The British Council is fully committed to Eliminating Stigma and Discrimination and to Inclusive Education by creating more inclusive education systems. In July 2018 the Council signed FCDO ‘Charter for Change’ at the Global Disability Summit in London.
