International Council for Education of People with Visual Impairment



Teacher Training Gateway



The ICEVI Executive Committee (EXCO), at its annual meeting in Pretoria in February, 2017, established a working group to address one of its priority goals for the quadrennium:  Promoting access to quality education for people with visual impairment including those with blindness, low vision, deafblindness, and additional disabilities.  The EXCO determined that the first step would be to develop a teacher training curriculum that would assist countries to train teachers of students with visual impairment.  This activity supports the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal #4 Education:


By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys complete free, equitable and qualityprimary and secondary education leading to relevant and Goal-4 effective

learning outcomes


And specifically, the target to support SDG4,


By 2030, substantially increase the supply of qualified teachers, including through international cooperation for teacher training in developing

countries, especially least developed countries and small island developing states
