Curriculum

This course is relevant to both mainstream and specialist settings and the overall aim is to build the capacity of teachers and other professionals to respond effectively to the diverse educational needs of all learners, including those with special and additional educational needs.

You will gain a firm grounding in understanding a range of special educational needs.

You will develop detailed knowledge of specific special needs, including autism, dyslexia and social and emotional mental-health issues.

Throughout the course, you will be supported to develop a critical understanding of theory alongside the practical knowledge you will gain.

Participants are encouraged to make links between theory and their own practice, and become reflective practitioners who are able to think proactively and strategically about provision for pupils with special and additional learning needs
