Course summary

This programme involves practice-related research and professional development in Education: Autism, and is relevant to all phases of education, including post-16 education. The programme features are designed to make it theoretically and practically relevant for educational practitioners. Students already employed can use this programme to develop their professional knowledge. Those progressing from undergraduate studies are able to develop specialist knowledge and enhance their professional learning for their future career. After completion, students may progress on to masters and doctoral study.

The approach is designed to allow you the opportunity to learn about the theory and practice of autism in the educational context. The programme is taught face to face but also provides a series of blended learning tasks which build to support the research, writing and final submission process. There is also an optional assessment submission based on the Autism Education Trust's competency outcomes. The competency framework assesses work-based policy and practice, and provides a professional practice-based outcome, in addition to the academic award. The assignments allow you to choose a research focus relevant to your own work. You are supported academically through module sessions and personal tutor guidance.
