Objectives of the funding measure
In order to make inclusive education successful in practice, the BMBF announced the funding directive ‘Qualification of educational professionals for inclusive education’ in 2016. The aim is to refocus qualification programmes on inclusive teaching and learning processes in all educational areas.

The funding directive is part of the Framework Programme for Empirical Educational Research, and in this context it includes providing knowledge on dealing with diversity in educational institutions. The aim of the funding directive is to transfer the research results into the initial, further and continuing education of educational professionals. In this way, those involved in the research priority ‘Inclusive education’ make a direct contribution to fostering people with and without disabilities in all stages of education, thus advancing the development of an inclusive education system in Germany.
