Special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) are becoming increasingly complex. Our course will equip you with the knowledge, skills and understanding to improve provision and engage constructively and confidently with professionals and families of children and young people with SEND, 0-25 years.

Studying with colleagues and experts from various professional disciplines, you’ll work closely with those who recognise the importance of ensuring quality of life and fulfilment of families’ aspirations for children and young people with SEND.

From exploring professionals’ duties and procedures within the wider societal and familial context, to the enhancement of intervention, communication and inter-personal skills, our course aims to strengthen and enrich your professional repertoire, and tackle the assumptions that it’s clear how to collaborate and maximise one another’s skills.
