With an estimated 20 per cent of our young people in school with special educational needs, it is important for teachers to have access to current research and to develop their understanding and confidence in this area.
It will allow you to develop your knowledge of specific learning difficulties, and to become a reflective practitioner who is able to use research to inform your own practice.
This Special Educational Needs programme, offered by University of East London, will give you a firm grounding in understanding a range of special needs across a variety of age groups. Subjects include autism, dyslexia, social and emotional mental health issues, inclusion and leadership in SEN.
Your future career
This course will help you develop a range of transferrable skills that are desirable in a wide range of careers.
These skills include knowledge of theories, legislation, policy and practice, computer literacy, planning and time management and written communication.
It will also demonstrate your ability to design and carry out small-scale research and to engage in critical thinking.
The skills and knowledge developed 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 your career in areas such as therapy, support work, social work, educational psychology and work with adults with additional needs.
