Course Description

This is a specialist training course for teaching adult dyslexic students, covering theories on dyspraxia and dyslexia, equipping you with strategies to help these learners and providing an understanding of IT support, as well as actual teaching practice. It is accredited by the British Dyslexia Association for ATS status (HE/FE).

More about this course

The aims of the course are to offer specialist training and development in teaching adult dyslexic students in higher and further education, and to provide you with knowledge of the theories that relate to specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia and dyspraxia/SpLDs as a specialist one-to-one tutor.

The course will also equip you with a range of strategies to effectively support adult learners with SpLDs, including an understanding of IT/AT to integrate into your new or developing practice.

You are assessed via a variety of methods including course reflections, a project, a case study, presentations, teaching observation, a portfolio that includes written evidence of specialist teaching practice (minimum 30 hours across the year) and a process recording.

After the course

Graduates from the Postgraduate Certificate may go on to the Postgraduate Diploma in Assessing SpLDs and thence to the Masters in SpLDs. Graduates of the PGC:TADLHFE course need to have a good understanding of how to help adult dyslexic learners reach their full potential.
