Overview

On the SEND pathway you will develop your sense of purpose by examining your beliefs around the demands of working in SEND education and beyond and how you can maintain your values when faced with challenges. This course will be for you if you have an interest in special educational needs, disability and diversity and a strong belief in inclusion. You will develop your understanding of the major issues in these fields and you will have the opportunity to reflect upon current SEND practice and policy and its impact on education in society. You will be encouraged to develop your own perspective on how we can improve the lives of those with special educational needs and disabilities.

This course will be suitable if you are new to SEND or if you have some experience of SEND practice and want to deepen your theoretical understanding. As a graduate from this pathway you will be an informed advocate for those with SEND.

You will focus on people with SEND and explore their education, development and care. You will have the opportunity to become a confident, self-aware, reflective graduate, able to operate as a professional in multi-agency contexts. The programme content draws on international research and practice including global perspectives of SEND, different SEND curricula and established, as well as emerging, theory.
