About Special and Inclusive Education (Distance Learning) at University of Nottingham

This online course offers a comprehensive focus on contemporary debates within special and inclusive education including local, national and international policies and approaches.

There is growing international impetus to dismantle educational exclusion and to develop equitable and inclusive education systems. In this course we consider the rights  of all children to be included in schools and society, by examining barriers to inclusion in terms of environment and within child factors.  This includes exploration of the specific needs of children with labels of learning difficulties, intellectual impairment, physical and sensory disabilities, communication impairments, literacy difficulties/dyslexia, autism and SEBD/ADHD to illustrate the challenges encountered in professional practice.

Critical exploration of current theory and research inform consideration of pedagogical approaches as well as the development of effective systems and structures for supporting students in collaboration with teachers, parents/carers and different agencies.

This course is suitable if you are interested in developing your knowledge and understanding of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), working as a teacher or associated professional in mainstream education or specialised settings wishing to extend your skills and practice, an experienced professional, or new to working with children with SEND.
