Inclusive Education and Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)

The question of how education can promote greater equity in an increasingly diverse society is central to this MA. It provides the opportunity to engage at the forefront of theoretical perspectives and research in the field of inclusion, disability and SEN to deepen understanding of how you might shape, approach and develop practice for your own professional setting. Students are encouraged to develop their own narrative in relation to the balance, and tensions, between inclusive practice in mainstream settings and more targeted provision or specialised areas of SEN, reflecting critically on your own experience and alternative perspectives. The award draws on the specialist expertise and research in the Faculty's Education and Social Research Institute. This award is part of the Manchester Met Faculty of Education postgraduate Professional Development Programme. Features and Benefits - A structure which is easily tailored to individuals' professional priorities and personal interests. - Flexibility, encouragement and support to use the focus and structures of the award to develop expertise in self-selected areas. - The opportunity to study alongside colleagues working across a range of educational settings, learning and co-constructing expert knowledge overtime. - A philosophically principled approach which values the voice of the practitioner and is committed to enabling and strengthening that voice. - As part of the Manchester Met Faculty of Education postgraduate Professional Development Programme, MA students enjoy the benefits and features associated with belonging to a dynamic, wider community of learners. - Flexible award structure and three starting points (October, February, June) - Possibility of accrediting prior learning (APEL)
