Why choose this course?

The focus of this programme is the provision of opportunities for yourselves as current education professionals to develop your understanding of theory and practice related to inclusion. The programme will enable you to critically evaluate a range of inclusive practices approaches in relation to how those might enable student belonging and agency.

We will look at inclusion and diversity across a number of themes including policies and practices related to specific educational needs and widening participation. This module will provide practising education professionals with opportunity to be part of a community/ network as well as with a host of practical strategies and support

What happens on the course?

You will develop your knowledge and understanding of issues and practices related to inclusion in education settings.  You will design, implement and reflect on a change to an aspect of inclusive practices in your work context. We promote active critical reflection and the sharing of reflections on theory and practice with your peers.

This programme is student-centred as it is informed by your professional education experiences and practices. You are expected to engage in reflective activities that examine the key literature and research in this field. It is anticipated that you will synthesise theory and practice in order to actively engage in your own continuing professional development
