This programme, which is suitable for graduates working in educational settings, will equip you with an understanding of the critical debates and issues surrounding dyscalculia and mathematics learning difficulties. You will develop the ability to screen and plan a programme of intervention for learners with dyscalculia, as well as engaging in the completion of reports based on the screening and assessment of learners. You will be equipped with a clear understanding of a range of approaches to effective teaching and learning and gain an appreciation of the wider social and emotional aspects of dyscalculia and mathematics learning difficulties. The programme provides a combination of critical thinking, evaluation and practical action to ensure you can demonstrate highly effective practice and support for learners with dyscalculia.

What will I study?

The course comprises two modules, one studied per semester, which explore the critical debates and issues surrounding dyscalculia and mathematics learning difficulties.

You will gain a deep understanding of current research, appraise a range of teaching and learning approaches, and critically reflect upon the difficulties that learners with dyscalculia may have to overcome in order to achieve their full potential in mathematics.

Additionally, you will develop the ability to screen, assess, report and plan intervention programmes for learners with dyscalculia.

How will I study?

The programme will be delivered through a blended learning approach that consists of face-to-face sessions and supported online learning through the use of the University’s virtual learning environment (VLE).

You will be encouraged to share reflections using the discussion facilities provided within the virtual learning environment, enabling you to participate in discussions with a network of professionals and draw on this pool of experience and expertise.

You will be required to attend two workshops and actively participate in all sessions and tutorials including online activities. Face-to-face sessions take place at Solihull College Conference Centre.

How will I be assessed?

The programme is assessed through a variety of methods including case studies, pupil profiles, evaluated specialist teaching, observations of teaching, and holistic diagnostic reports.

Who will be teaching me?

You will be taught by tutors with a wide range of expertise in a variety of academic disciplines, including inclusion and special educational needs, dyscalculia, dyslexia, leadership and management, educational research and systematic enquiry.

All teaching observations will be carried out by tutors who hold Associate Membership of the British Dyslexia Association (AMBDA) status.

What are my career prospects?

The programme will equip you with the professional attributes, skills, knowledge, attitudes and confidence required to understand the needs of individuals with dyscalculia and provide highly effective specialist support to them.
