MA Special Educational Needs


Course Description

The MA Special Educational Needs (SEN) is designed to critically engage with current thinking and ideas about inclusive and specialist education for both general and specific needs. The programme draws upon current legislation and national/international research evidence to inform practice. The programme addresses SEN for a wide range of age groups and covers issues such as assessment and intervention, partnerships with parents, inter-agency working, pupil intervention, equal opportunities and policy. The programme is relevant to both mainstream and specialist settings.

The programme is designed to be responsive to the specific cultural, historic and practical context of individual organisations, and of individual participants.

Key Facts

This programme will provide participants with the capacity to meet legislative requirements for pupils with SEN and to meet specific and general needs of learners and is endorsed by the College of Social Work. The programme supports the development of the Senco role and provides opportunities to specialise in specific areas of SEN.

Why Choose Us?

The integration of theory and practice provides opportunities for participants to personalise their learning and address areas of interest and challenge in the context of their work. The pedagogy of the programme includes a focus upon collaborative learning which supports participants to address current issues and problems through the strength of collective knowledge, experience and expertise. Additional dissertation preparation sessions are provided to ensure a rigorous and informed choice of research approach that is relevant to your practice.

Participants will have the opportunity to engage in face to face seminars, workshops and lectures as well as collaborative activities and discussions in a virtual learning environment.
