PGCert Education (Dyscalculia)

This programme, which is suitable for graduates working in educational settings, will equip you with an understanding of the critical debates and issues surrounding dyscalculia and mathematics learning difficulties.

You will be equipped with a clear understanding of a range of approaches to effective teaching and learning and gain an appreciation of the wider social and emotional aspects of dyscalculia and mathematics learning difficulties. The programme provides a combination of critical thinking, evaluation and practical action to ensure you can demonstrate highly effective practice and support for learners with dyscalculia.

Applicants who do not meet these requirements may also be considered on an individual basis.

Recognition of Prior Learning

Edge Hill University recognises learning gained elsewhere, whether through academic credit and qualifications acquired from other relevant courses of study or through recognition of an individual’s professional and employment experience (also referred to as ‘experiential learning’).

Previous learning that is recognised in this way may be used towards meeting the entry requirements for a programme and/or for exemption from part of a programme. It is your responsibility to make a claim for recognition of prior learning at the start of your programme. For guidance, please consult the University’s Recognition of Prior Learning Policy and contact the faculty in which you are interested in studying.
