Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Based on the principles on 'nothing about us without us', content is informed by the experiences of people who identify personally with autism and/or SEND. You'll be prepared for a wide variety of settings, from early years of education through to college or university.  Disabled people are actively encouraged to apply and will receive appropriate support.

Employability

This Education - Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) course at London South Bank University will enable you to work with disabled students in schools, colleges, alternative education settings and in universities. Its content is of benefit to both teachers and staff in non-teaching roles, including mentors, disability officers and learning support assistants. It's also relevant to staff in strategic and operational leadership roles.

It is a professional and academic degree that provides an in-depth understanding of inclusive practice in education across the age range (in keeping with the 0-25 framework in the Children and Families Act 2014). You'll explore the diverse requirements of learners identified with SEND and the best practice to support inclusive learning. You'll be encouraged to critically engage with relevant theory and legislation contextualised and applied in practice.

This programme will contribute to your employability and the National SENCO award may be a requirement of your workplace.

Progression from the MA to the Doctorate in Education can further enhance your prospects, particularly in academia and research, giving you the opportunity to become published in referred journals.
