Supporting the sustainability and development of existing and future inclusive education initiatives for students with intellectual disabilities within Irish Higher Education Providers.

Inclusive National Higher Education Forum

The Inclusive National Higher Education Forum [INHEF] is a national interest group comprised of representatives of higher education providers and other professionals interested in supporting access routes and inclusive education initiatives to learners with intellectual disabilities in Ireland.

Mission Statement

 

The mission of INHEF is to provide a collaborative space for consultation between higher education providers with a view to driving strategic developments; informing policy debates, and building capacity within higher education institutions to establish and deliver initiatives for students who are deemed to have an intellectual disability. 

INHEF Vision

 

The vision of INHEF is to embed inclusive education initiatives and alternative access routes into the higher education landscape in the Republic of Ireland so that students with intellectual disabilities have meaningful post secondary opportunities available to them.
