Course summary

This course will provide you with the professional attributes to make a real difference to children, young people and adults with dyslexia and literacy difficulties.

Course overview

This course aims to provide you with the professional attributes to make a real difference to children, young people and adults with specific learning differences (dyslexia). You will have the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to act as a specialist teacher and/or assessor for dyslexia in line with British Dyslexia Association (BDA) requirements.

Why study this course with us?

Our courses allow study for the ATS/APS or AMBDA for either Schools or FE/HE, making it suitable for those who need the relevant qualifications to be Non-Medical Helpers in HE, plus those working in FE. We have also introduced the ATS/APS Dyscalculia/Numeracy course for those who wish to specialise in dyslexia/SpLD and maths difficulties.

When learning to assess for the Postgraduate Diploma, we have copies of the main standardised tests which our students can borrow.

The Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma are both at Level 7, giving the successful candidate 120 CAT points of the 180 needed for an MA, therefore putting an MA within reach alongside the BDA accreditation.

On completion of the course, you will be eligible to apply to the British Dyslexia Association for: Associate Member of the British Dyslexia Association (AMBDA) - Schools or FE/HE; Approved Teacher Status of the British Dyslexia Association (ATS/BDA); Approved Practitioner Status of the British Dyslexia Association (APS/BDA) for Schools, FE/HE or Dyscalculia/Numeracy, depending on options chosen. You will also gain PGCert and PGDip awards in this course.
