Course summary

This programme, which is suitable for graduates working in educational settings, will enhance and develop your knowledge of a range of learning difficulties, enabling you to gain a deeper understanding of special education needs (SEN) and inclusion. There will be opportunities to reflect upon the importance of early identification of need as you enhance your awareness of how to recognise the indicators of a range of special educational needs. These include dyslexia, autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) difficulties. Effective strategies to improve intervention will also be considered and related to your practice, underpinned by reflection upon a range of literature and legislation, as you gain an enhanced appreciation of how inspiring practice can support and augment the learning of those with special educational needs.

What will I study?

The course comprises two modules, one studied per semester, which explore the provision of inclusive education for those with special educational needs.

You will consider the dilemmas arising from everyday practice, examine UK policy as well as national and international legislation, and reflect upon the range of learning difficulties within your own setting.

How will I study?

The programme will be delivered through a blended learning approach that consists of one workshop per module and supported online learning through the use of the University’s virtual learning environment (VLE).

Additional sessions will be available via Collaborate, an academic virtual classroom, to enhance the online learning experience. Academic tutors will also offer guidance on the development of your practice-based research.

What are my career prospects?

The programme will equip you with the professional attributes, skills, knowledge, attitudes and confidence required to support individuals with a range of learning difficulties.
