Inclusive Education and Disability Studies

Inclusive Education is the study of how schools and education systems can develop more inclusive practice for all, particularly learners who may be marginalised from educational opportunities under current provision such as those with special educational needs or disabilities. Disability Studies explores disability in society, drawing on disciplines such as sociology, critical theory and the disabled person's struggles to challenge disability discrimination in all its forms. This course will suit those seeking to progress into teaching (PGCE required), other roles in education or to further academic study in related fields. It can enable you to develop the knowledge, commitment and ideas needed to help transform our education system in the future. Teaching is enriched by interdisciplinary collaboration between our Centre for Inclusive Education and Disability Studies and researchers in Disability Studies from the Faculty of Health, Psychology and Social Care. We have extensive links with schools, local authorities and disability organisations who may provide volunteering and placement opportunities, speakers and research projects. Features and Benefits - Course blends aspects of inclusive education, special educational needs and disability studies - Tutors with relevant experience in the field as psychologists, school leaders and senior teachers, or local authority advisers - Led by academics with a passion for their subject, many of whom are active in research and published in their field - Opportunity to apply to study overseas as part of the course (subject to meeting programme specific criteria) - Access to 'EdLab, our enrichment and innovation programme
