Course summary

Course Summary

This exciting course, which is delivered online, is a collaboration between the University of East London and the Institute of Child Education and Psychology Europe (ICEP).

Underpinned by the latest research in special education, the course builds on participants’ existing skills and competencies. The aim is to enhance the quality of education for children and young people with special and additional learning needs in settings worldwide.

The course has an international flavour, drawing students from countries such as Australia, Hong Kong, Kuwait, UAE, Ireland, Canada and New Zealand. It does not just focus on the UK but also looks at how policy is implemented around the world. One of the most exciting aspects of this course is that knowledge is co-constructed through the online discussion boards.

As a student you will share your experiences and knowledge about policy and practice in your own context, leading to a richer understanding of global issues in special and additional learning needs for all participants. Students will also achieve PGDip and PGCert.

Your Future Career

This course will help you develop a range of transferrable skills that are desirable in a wide variety of careers. These skills include the knowledge of theories, legislation, policy and practice, computer literacy, planning and time management and written communication. You will also demonstrate your ability to think critically and to design and carry out small-scale research.

The skills and knowledge that you will develop on this course will allow those working in teaching to gain expertise in the increasingly sought after area of special needs. However, this course could also support careers in areas such as therapy, support work, social work, educational psychology and work with adults with additional needs.
