While working towards a Education, Inclusion and Special Educational Needs (BA Hons), we aim to help you develop a broad understanding and awareness of issues, concepts, ideas and theories relating to Education in its broadest sense. We will work with you to identify your own interests in the field of inclusion and special education and support you in working towards your own personal career goals.

The course will explore issues relating to inclusion and special educational needs including specific profiles such as ASD, Attachment, ADHD, Mental Health and Dyslexia. Alongside this, you will be encouraged to develop your own personal values and philosophies and debate the opportunities and challenges for inclusion.

You will be encouraged to make links between theory and practice both within the taught content and assignments, and whilst on placement.

Study style

Lectures are designed to be interactive with considerable use of discussion, which is often built upon group tasks, case studies and scenarios. You will be encouraged to develop your own perspective on inclusion and special educational needs and broader educational issues linked to social justice and sustainability. There is a strong psychology thread running throughout the programme where we look for theories and ideas that can help us understand and work with others. You will be offered the option to engage in work placements in your second and third year and take part in an optional placement year after year 2.
