Description

Study for a nationally recognised qualification designed for teachers of children and adolescents who are experiencing specific learning difficulties (SpLD) in mathematics.

On our part-time course, you’ll focus on becoming a specialist teacher of children (up to the age of 18) with dyscalculia.

You’ll study two core units, one on nature, identification and assessment, and the other on supporting learners with dyscalculia and other specific learning difficulties in mathematics.

Through these units, you’ll develop your understanding of the problems children with dyscalculia and other mathematics-related difficulties experience.

The option unit (Unit 3: Practice Credits) emphasises practical skills and you’ll need to assess and teach a student experiencing specific learning difficulties in mathematics in your own workplace. You must assess one student or a small group of students, and teach for at least one hour a week for 20 weeks.
