We view SEND from multiple perspectives and use a variety of theoretical frameworks to explore key issues. We value and share our wide ranging expertise and experiences and encourage you to contribute to and reflect on the various debates and discussions. Our seminar groups are diverse and energetic; you will meet teachers from around the world and from different educational contexts.
We offer students a vibrant intellectual and academic experience. You benefit from weekly face-to-face seminars, individual or small group tutorials, and independent study activities on our Virtual Learning environment (VLE). You will visit local settings offering best practice in inclusive education, and be invited to research talks with leading academics from across the University and a range of external speakers.
This Special Educational Needs programme at University of Leeds provides teachers and education professionals with the knowledge and skills needed to reflect on and develop their practice. It is relevant to a wide range of educational contexts and settings and can support career development in a variety of ways.
Past students have used the qualification to help them progress in management and leadership roles, or to specialise in supporting pupils with particular learning profiles and needs.
The course also provides an ideal route into further study and we have an excellent track record of graduates continuing to doctoral level through our well established EdD and PhD programmes.
