The BA Top-up in Learning and Teaching: Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) is a part-time programme for people working or volunteering in training, tutoring or support roles with learners in schools, specialist units, FE, HE, the voluntary sector, libraries and a variety of other contexts.
The programme runs for one afternoon per week and can be completed within 18 months. It is aimed at those working with learners with SEND who wish to further develop their understanding and expertise in this area, building on their learning at Foundation Degree level to gain a specialist degree which enhances their career prospects.
The BA combines the development of specialist knowledge through option modules (for example on autism), with core modules on broader issues in education. The dissertation also offers the opportunity to research a specific SEND-related area of interest.
Teaching on the BA programme is in relatively small groups, enabling students to actively engage in sessions, and to benefit from a supportive context. Members of the Lifelong Learning Centre staff team are dedicated to helping students with all aspects of their progress to make the most of their time at the University.
