University of Northampton
Special Educational Needs and Inclusion
An Honours degree from a UK institution or equivalent. Some modules require Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) or Early Years Professional Status (EYPS). This has been superseded from September 2013 by the Early Years Teacher status. Students or teachers who have gained credits at M Level 7 from Northampton or from other universities can apply to use these towards the MA in SEN and Inclusion if they can demonstrate that their studies have been in the field. Students who have achieved the National Award for SEN Coordination or the Level 7 OCR Diploma in teaching and assessing learners with dyslexia in the last 5 years can use their 60 credits towards the Master's degree. Applicants who have recent professional experience of 3 years or more will be positively considered. If this is not the case the applicant will be interviewed and must demonstrate suitability for the course by providing evidence of significant professional engagement in childrens services at graduate level or equivalent. The evidence will be in the form of a compendium or portfolio which sets out details of their specific responsibilities relating to their work with children and young people.
Example modules include: promoting inclusive practice; key concepts in inclusion and diversity; autism; social, emotional and behavioural difficulties; profound and multiple learning difficulties; promoting English as an additional language (EAL) practice.
There are no examinations. The programme is taught through a series of lectures, seminars and workshops with additional small group and individual tutorials being provided for all students. The course has a mixture of assessments involving essays, portfolios, presentations and small scale research projects. Participants will complete a final project/dissertation on a topic negotiated with a tutor.
