This programme provides outstanding professional development for those already working in this sector enabling them to deepen their understanding of how to develop more inclusive practice within their own professional setting or country context. It is led by highly qualified tutors with specialist experience. There are close links with the University's Education and Social Research Institute which has established a reputation for innovation in Inclusive Education.
An additional Option Unit may be offered with school visits where possible, entitled: 'Introduction to inclusive practice & SEN'.
It may also be possible to arrange for a voluntary work placement leading to research opportunities, in a UK school or other educational setting. For international and EU students, it is also possible to complete data collection in your own country, if you obtain the necessary permissions
