About

The Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties programme offered by the University of Birmingham aims to develop professional practice in educational settings.

Overview

If you work with children and young people who exhibit challenging behaviour, disaffection and disengagement with schooling, then this programme will be relevant to you. 

The Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties programme offered by the University of Birmingham uses the National College for Teaching and Leadership competencies for core and expert standards for working with pupils experiencing social, emotional and behavioural difficulties (SEBD). 

From these standards the programme provides a wider context for knowledge and understanding of SEBD, the development of skills and expertise in meeting these pupils’ needs, and professional experience upon which to promote good practice.

Careers

The Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties programme is ideal for those working in settings which provide education for children and young people with SEBD. It is particularly suited to teachers, care workers, mentors, youth workers and learning support assistants working in primary, secondary, further education and specialist settings. Upon completion of this course, you will have experience in dealing with pupils with challenging behaviour within educational settings.

There is the opportunity to work towards a further professional qualification in the field of Education both within schools and in other settings, including progression to a PhD or EdD. 

The excellent careers advice provided by personal tutors has encouraged many of our graduates to successfully apply for leadership roles working with children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. 

These include: specialist teachers, education advisors, special educational needs coordinators, teaching assistants, youth workers, behaviour managers and counsellors.
