Course summary

This degree develops your understanding of theories of disability and inclusion and how different groups develop and learn throughout their lives. It equips you with the knowledge and practical strategies required to meet the needs of learners from diverse backgrounds or with a range of special educational needs, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, learning difficulties, and sensory impairments. Focused on the study of education with an emphasis on Special Educational Needs and Inclusion (SEND), this degree will prepare you for either initial teacher training courses, postgraduate learning or a range of educational employment opportunities such as educational development worker, educational resource manager, and a project officer in museums, galleries, and / or charities. The emphasis on SEND will enable you to take advantage of employment opportunities in the areas of special education, alternative provision, and therapeutic led-careers. Each year provides a key focus that will lend to you thinking as an educationalist with an emphasis on SEND. In Year One, the course provides a solid grounding for understanding the multi and interdisciplinary nature of education. Multidisciplinary in the way that it draws from Sociology, Psychology, Philosophy and Politics, and interdisciplinary in the way that it includes specialised educational fields of study.In Year Two, the course will cement your theoretical knowledge as you think about how your own research could contribute to the field of education. You will also focus on SEND in modules relating to disability and inclusive practices. Year Two is dedicated to placement activity. Placements can be in a wide range of educational settings, locally, regionally, nationally or internationally. In Year Three, you’ll conduct research for your dissertation and continue to gain experience and develop a portfolio. Diversity in relation to SEND will be explored and practices considered.
