Alternatively, if you have completed subjects in psychology in your bachelor degree, you may select one of the above teaching areas and complete the Learning Support specialist area. In the Learning Support courses, you will gain specialist skills needed to provide learning support to students with additional needs. You will be able to work in secondary settings where you advise teachers in their planning and/or teach in secondary special education settings.
