The Post Graduate Certificate in Understanding and Supporting Behaviour is designed to critically engage with current thinking and ideas about inclusive and specialist education for both general needs and for pupils with behavioural difficulties. The programme draws upon current legislation and national/international research evidence to inform practice. The programme is relevant to both mainstream and specialist settings.
The programme supports the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice (DfE, 2014) by enabling professionals to develop expertise in the area of social, emotional and behavioural difficulties and inclusion. This is a credit based programme which could lead towards a MA in Special Educational Needs.
A part time programme, with the possibility of evening or work place based teaching which allows professionals the freedom to continue in employment whilst pursuing their studies.
Applicants must have an undergraduate honours degree (or equivalent: e.g. certificate of education; higher level professional training in SEN with demonstrable parity in experience), minimum 2:2 classification or equivalent. In the case of applicants whose first language is not English, then IELTS 6.5 (or equivalent) is required. International qualifications will be checked for appropriate matriculation to UK Higher Education postgraduate programmes. It is recommended that applicants are able to spend some time each week in an educational setting, on a paid or voluntary basis in order to gain maximum benefit from the practice based focus of learning and assessment.
