Course summary

Study inclusive education to Master’s level, or study part-time for a Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert) to gain accreditation linked to your work in schools to gain the Inclusion Quality Mark. You’ll be assessed 100% by coursework.

Study for a Postgraduate Certificate

The PGCert (part-time) is specifically designed to allow practitioners in schools to gain accreditation linked to the work they’re undertaking, or have undertaken, in gaining the Inclusion Quality Mark in their setting. We value the learning and development which occurs for practitioners in the process of the working towards the Inclusion Quality Mark and believe this learning can be harnessed to move your academic development forward.

When you finish the PGCert you’ll have completed one third of a Master’s. At this point, we’d be happy to discuss your options to continue your studies to Master’s level.
