The article considers the problem of preparing faculty members for teaching physically challenged students and those with limited health capacities in the context of inclusive education. The current state of inclusive practice in higher education is analyzed, taking into account normative legal documents and the needs of society. The paper describes possible psychological and pedagogical difficulties that may be encountered by university staff while beginning to teach students with special needs. The authors of the article have singled out three components of the pedagogical activity of academic staff - motivational, informational and methodological - which make it possible to approach the process of inclusive education comprehensively. The content of each component is described and supported by the monitoring results of the faculty members of the Saint-Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics (ITMO University) participating in the creation of special conditions for students with special needs. The conclusion is made about the need to create a special system for training academic staff, which makes it possible to solve the problems of organizing the education of the increasing amount of students with special needs.
