Inclusive Education (Research, Policy and Practice)

This programme is designed to address contemporary issues in inclusion/special education. If the student is a teacher involved in inclusive education/special education, this programme is designed to promote their understanding of the issues and practices relevant to this area. Our research-informed courses helps students to think about practice and policy in the light of current educational thinking and enables students to consider how an inclusive education system might operate in schools and other educational institutions. Students discuss recent theories related to many of the conditions and labels associated with special educational needs/additional support needs and have the opportunity to develop practice that takes account of these within an inclusive framework.
