It also presents legislative framework and describes the main challenges in education of pupils of different nationalities. The goal of the empirical part is to find out how are teachers trained to carry out this task, to find out their personal attitudes towards teaching those pupils and to achieve their feedback on available support and materials. Results of conducted qualitative interviews are presented. The collected data indicate insufficient training on the topic at universities and limited offer of additional courses, although the courses are perceived as beneficial by teachers.
