Course content

This postgraduate certificate has been designed for those who wish to develop their knowledge, understanding and practice in aspects of inclusion and to improve outcomes for children and young people with SEN and/or disabilities.

Inclusion and Special Educational Needs and Disability (30 Credits)

This module offers students the opportunity to explore the concepts of inclusion and special educational needs and disability and to critically engage with the debates surrounding the inclusion ‘agenda.’ They will gain a critical understanding of how SEND can affect pupils’ participation and learning and can cause barriers to learning that can lead to underachievement. They will explore strategies to promote a whole school culture of high expectations and best practice in teaching and learning to improve outcomes for children and young people with SEND.

The Role of SENCO (30 Credits)

This module is designed to provide students with the opportunity to appreciate and develop the personal and professional qualities and leadership skills they need to promote inclusive practice and support the interests and needs of children, young people and pupils with SEND and disabilities. Students will be encouraged to critically reflect on the role of the SENCO and to critically evaluate their practice in the aspects of multi-agency working, meeting statutory responsibilities and deploying resources and systems to improve outcomes for pupils with a range of SEND and their families.
