This programme produces graduates competent in functional assessment and the co-production of positive behaviour support strategies. Graduates are able to take up employment in education and adult services in specialist and leadership roles.
The Diploma in Positive Behaviour Support will attract parents, teachers and health professionals, social care specialists, support workers, service managers and those eager to further both their knowledge and practice, and career opportunities.
You can discuss options to ‘upgrade’ from the Diploma in Positive Behaviour Support to the BSc in Positive Behaviour Support with your tutor during your studies.
