Today is World Access to Higher Education Day 2020. World Access to Higher Education Day is a platform to raise global awareness around inequalities in access and success in higher education (HE), and act as a catalyst for international, regional and local action.
The Inclusive National Higher Education Forum (INHEF), is a national interest group comprised of higher education representatives 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 in the Republic of Ireland.
The INHEF have partnered with CareersPortal.ie to promote viable opportunities for students with intellectual disabilities to participate in higher education programmes designed to enhance their capacity to fully participate in society as independent adults. This joint initiative aims to promote the inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities in higher education – and society.
All the courses from the participating colleges have been included in a new filter on the popular CouresFinder on CareersPortal Intellectual Disability Programmes where prospective students can search all course details.
