You’ll question the way we educate and look at alternative ways to encourage the inclusion of children and adults who are marginalised from typical ways of learning.

We emphasise the importance of understanding different perspectives and investigating where your position lies within current debates. We challenge you to rethink your ideas about education, to critique your views, and to think about the implications for policy and practice.


You could develop your career across the education sector with Special Educational Needs and Inclusive Education  masters degree from Manchester Metropolitan University  within mainstream and specialist settings.
