Course summary

The Postgraduate Certificate in SEN/ALN (Additional Learning Needs) will be of interest to those who wish to enhance and develop their knowledge in the field of special educational/additional learning needs.

This distinct course is designed to encourage greater understanding and a critical appreciation of the developments and practice within SEN/ALN and disability provision across schools and other relevant settings both nationally and internationally.

The SEN/ALN course is designed for professionals working in educational, health and care settings, or in the third sector. It is suitable for those working with children or adults with special educational/additional learning needs and/or with a disability.

The Postgraduate Certificate SEN/ALN is also of relevance to newly qualified practitioners who are interested in gaining further knowledge in special educational /additional learning needs.

We intend to deliver our courses in a blended format; with a proportion of the teaching and learning being delivered digitally, and where it is safe to do so, some teaching and learning being delivered in person and using social distancing and/or mitigating measures as deemed appropriate in line with government guidance.

Assessment

Each module is assessed by a 5000 word written assignment where the topic is negotiated with the tutor.

Careers

The majority of students will be professionals working with children, young people and adults with SEN/ALN and disabilities (education, health and social care) who would like to develop their expertise in the field. As professional development it is intended that undertaking the course will support promotion within a service and/or a move into a more specialist role.
