The research on inclusive education emphasizes investing in training for existing teachers and school leaders as well as for new teachers and understanding that teachers need support. China is not disconnected from these issues. However, there are some barriers to develop inclusive education in society such as attitudes, teacher training and a lack of participation within the vulnerable groups of society. Currently, the Chinese government has made some effort; e.g. implementation of the national policy named Learning in Regular Classrooms and ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities at the policy-making level. But this educational policy must be accompanied by other measures that have an impact on educational practices and school management, especially on the training of teachers. Against this background, this project helps to contribute the demand for highly educated teachers at the primary school level can be tackled, and universities in China can be encouraged to take European standards into consideration. This project is innovative because it focuses on the topic of inclusive education for supporting teacher training for Chinese primary school teachers. It is the first time a Mater¿s is being created in China in the field of inclusive education with its own characteristics and it will be designed in such a way that it can easily be transferred to interested universities. The project will adopt these new approaches developing new types of courses for teachers with a strong emphasis on inclusion and peer learning, including good practices, scenarios and case studies. A website on inclusive education will be created. It is going to enhance not only what teachers are able to do practically but also to promote learning for leaving, learning to know, learning to do, learning to live, learning to be; in short, learning values, attitudes, creative and helpful teaching strategies in order to ensure education for all students.
