You will learn through seminars and active blended learning. We regularly have external speakers from the inclusive field to come and talk with you about current practice. Additionally, this course will give you the opportunity to undertake work based learning across all three years of your degree in a range of settings, with a focus on your future career throughout your degree. You will be able to go on international visits and exchanges to study SEN and Inclusion in other countries and contexts, making lasting professional connections. There are also optional specialist routes that explore the use of ICT for working with individuals with SEND and the use of media and creative arts approaches to exploring inclusion.
This course is underpinned by a selection of key themes:
- Inclusion as an integral element of a human rights agenda encompassing recognition of difference and diversity
- Comparative and international perspectives of SEN and Inclusion
- Historical, legislative and policy dimensions impacting on current agendas
- Professional contexts and roles across the available services leading to career pathways
