Course Description

This programme will help you to identify these needs, by introducing you to the many types of specific learning difficulties, and will develop your skills in selecting learning and teaching approaches that will ensure effective support.

Our Additional Support for Learning programmes are designed to meet the needs of practising teachers and other professionals.

You will examine approaches to supporting people with disabilities, such as curriculum adaptations and classroom accommodations and gain the confidence to apply them in practical settings.

Your learning will be in the form of lectures, seminars, small-group discussions and skill-development sessions.

Most courses are offered in e-learning or blended learning format, combining on-campus and online study.
