Develop the knowledge and skills to become a leader for special educational needs and disability (SEND) in your school. Gain the confidence to  increase the participation and achievement for children and young people with SEND.

On this part-time course, you’ll develop the skills and knowledge to improve the provision and outcomes for students in your school experiencing barriers to their learning.

Some of the topics you’ll explore include how national SEND policy affects your practice, how SEND impacts on pupils’ participation, and strategies to improve outcomes for pupils.

You’ll critically evaluate evidence on learning, teaching and assessing pupils with SEND, such as the impact of research evidence or the use of practical training tools. You’ll develop the skills to work strategically with senior colleagues and governors, challenging them where necessary.
