Course content

The 2015 Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice (DfE/DoH) outlines the need for schools and teachers to understand the social, emotional and mental health needs (SEMH) that can lead to behavioural difficulties.

This course helps teachers to develop their knowledge and understanding of current research and best practice in this area.

This is a new and innovative postgraduate course that will enable you to study and research current and relevant issues concerning SEMH and its relationship to challenging behaviour.

It is suitable for teachers and allied professionals working within educational settings who wish to deepen and extend their knowledge of behaviour, SEMH and inclusion.

The course will allow you to develop skills to reflect critically on your own practice and current research. It will enable you to contribute to school development and strategic vision concerning behaviour and SEMH.
