Special and Inclusive Education MA
Special and Inclusive Education examines the wide range of professional issues surrounding special educational needs in mainstream schools and specialist settings.

The course is concerned with the implications of inclusion for learning, teaching and pupil performance and takes account of policy and legislation.

You can focus on a range of topics, from dyslexia or autistic spectrum conditions to emotional, behavioural and social difficulties, and the study will be relevant to the classroom or workplace, with a strong emphasis on reflecting on your own practice in order to bring about school improvements that affect the achievement and motivation of your pupils.

Examples of good practice are drawn from research literature and from discussion with other practitioners. The course also acknowledges the importance of developing a research-based approach to learning.

Teaching focuses on schools, as many students are teachers or teaching assistants. However, the approach and assessment successfully includes practitioners from a range of disciplines and in workplaces such as Early Years settings, Further Education, home teaching and various clinical settings. Teachers, teaching assistants and other professionals from both special and mainstream schools, units and support teams work closely together on the modules.
