Inclusive Education (MEd)

Course Description

The School of Education provides an online portfolio of Career-long Professional Learning (CPL) programmes for the education workforce, to meet both current and emerging needs associated with the profession and to reflect the increasing importance attached nationally to professional learning, update and practice.

The programme is aimed at teachers and other professionals teaching and/or supporting learning in mainstream schools or other inclusive educational settings.

About the programme

The programme takes inclusive education to operate within the equality and human rights legislative context, aiming to remove barriers to learning and participation, and to eliminate discrimination and disadvantage for whatever reason.

Your learning

The programme equips you with knowledge, understanding and skills that make you well-suited to pursue positions of responsibility in the areas of inclusion and support for learning.

You will start with the compulsory module ‘Inclusion and Equality’. Upon successful completion of this module you can undertake two of the following modules to complete the Certificate; and five of the following modules or four of the following modules plus a Research Methods module to complete the Diploma:

• Autism Spectrum Disorders
• Dyslexia
• Gifted and Talented
• Inclusive Enquiry
• Inclusive Leadership
• Inclusive Practice
• Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties

Upon successful completion of the Diploma, participants who have studied the Research Methods module can progress to the MEd stage where you will undertake a dissertation on a relevant topic of your choice.

There is no requirement to attend ‘face-to-face’ sessions on this programme as it is offered by distance learning, using the UWS virtual learning environment.

Our Careers Adviser says

Professional and personal development abilities are greatly enhanced, and graduates will be perfectly poised to undertake positions of leadership as well as seeking new opportunities in this exciting field.

First-class facilities

You’ll have access to a wide range of technology to facilitate your learning. Our libraries are stocked with a vast range of specialist resources to help you in your studies, and you’ll also have access to our extensive electronic library collection (including e-books and academic journals) and the virtual learning environment, Moodle.
