Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties - MEd/PgDip/PgCert/Advanced Certificate

Course content

This distance learning programme in Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties (SEBD) aims to develop professional practice in educational settings. If you work with children and young people who exhibit challenging behaviour, disaffection and disengagement with schooling, then it will be relevant to you. 

Course details

Professional Development is increasingly important in the career development of all professionals within Education and Children’s Services in general. This distance education course will provide you with an increased knowledge/and understanding of Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties (SEBD) and it is particularly suited to teachers, care workers, mentors, youth workers and learning support assistants working in primary, secondary, further education and specialist settings. 

The programme uses the National College for Teaching and Leadership competencies for core and expert standards for working with pupils experiencing social, emotional and behavioural difficulties (SEBD). From these standards the programme provides a wider context for knowledge and understanding of SEBD, the development of skills and expertise in meeting these pupils’ needs, and professional experience upon which to promote good practice.

  2. SEBD Strategies, Interventions and Approaches

Learning and teaching

Each student has a personal tutor in a regional tutor group. Study is supported through study packs, tutorial groups, web based learning, online materials, telephone and email contact which allows students to learn with each other. Internet access is required for the programme. There is a university based study-weekend twice a year.

Employability

The Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties programme is ideal for those working in settings which provide education for children and young people with SEBD. It is particularly suited to teachers, care workers, mentors, youth workers and learning support assistants working in primary, secondary, further education and specialist settings. Upon completion of this course, you will have experience in dealing with pupils with challenging behaviour within educational settings.

There is the opportunity to work towards a further professional qualification in the field of Education both within schools and in other settings, including progression to a PhD or EdD.
