Inclusion and The Special Needs course looks at innovative and student centred approaches to teaching special needs learners within a normal classroom environment. Teachers will come to understand the issues facing these learners and ways to help involve them in a mainstream learning environment.
The programme includes the opportunity to visit a state school with integrated special needs and observe lessons, followed by discussions with experienced teachers and school managers. Guest speakers will also be invited to help you gain insight into Special Education in the UK.
