National Forum of Inclusive Higher Education Providers ? together is better
Aston, Desmond
The Inclusive National Higher Education Forum (INHEF), is a national interest group comprised of higher education providers and other professionals interested in supporting access routes and inclusive post secondary education initiatives to learners with intellectual disabilities. The mission of the INHEF is to provide a collaborative space for consultation between providers, with a view to driving strategic developments, informing policy debates, building capacity within higher education institutions to establish and deliver education programs for people with intellectual disabilities. The INHEF will have a particular focus of facilitating and improving the sustainability of inclusive higher education initiatives in the Republic of Ireland. In this article, Mr Des Aston, National & School Coordinator, Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities (TCPID) and INHEF colleagues have compiled some examples of specific initiatives underway in four HEI?s in Ireland.
