The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) programme will enable you to deepen and extend your knowledge and understanding of educational and social theories which are related to working with children and young people with a range of special educational and individual learning needs. You will gain an understanding of the nature and influence of contextual factors and through critical analysis, interrogate evidence-based research in order to develop and appraise a range of approaches, interventions and pedagogies related to meeting the individual learning needs of children/young people with SEND.

The programme utilises lectures, seminars, tutorials, school visits, practical tasks and discussions. Lectures are given by academics who are leaders in research in the Special Educational Needs field.
