If you work with people with learning difficulties or disabilities in education or in the community, our FdA Inclusive Practice is for you. The course recently received a Beacon Award for outstanding practice in meeting the needs of professionals working in this field. The two-year course runs on one day a week during term-time at University Centre Weston, allowing you to continue working while you study. It will enable you to meet others from similar settings, give you increased confidence and understanding, specific knowledge and skills, and a respected higher education qualification. Following successful completion, you can progress to one of our honours degrees by taking a one-year top-up course. You will work individually and in teams, writing assignments, giving short presentations and engaging in practical activities. Among wide-ranging topics, you will be introduced to education and disability policy, look at ways of supporting people with autistic spectrum conditions and learn how to manage difficult behaviour. All tasks are work based and draw on your experience. In addition to eight hours attendance per week, you will need to allocate time for study skills and tutorials, which will be arranged to suit your circumstances.
