Examine alternative approaches to inclusion and diversity in education. Explore theory, policy and practice in the field of inclusion, disability and Special Educational Needs (SEN). Analyse your professional practice, and apply current research concepts to your work.
Your practice is a key focus of this Inclusive Inclusive Education and Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) programme at Manchester Metropolitan University – you’ll continually reflect on your practice and adapt your skills using the methods you learn.
We will challenge you to rethink your ideas about education, to analyse your views, and to think about the implications for policy and practice.
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. Topics could include constructivism, Piaget’s theories on how children learn, and Dewey’s thoughts on applied knowledge.
Practice and self-reflection are a core part of this course, and it’s designed to support your priorities, targets and aspirations.
We encourage you to apply your new thinking to practice and carry these creative, innovative approaches forward. This helps you to develop your skills as a systematic, evidence-driven practitioner.
As a graduate, you’ll have the skills to develop a career across the education sector, within both mainstream and specialist settings. Previous graduates of this course have gone onto management and advisory positions.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
