Subject

Specialist teaching

The Inclusive and Special Education Foundation Degree has been designed for those working or wishing to work with children from birth to secondary within an Inclusive and Special Educational environment. The course is aimed at those who have a Level 3 qualification and/or sufficient employment experience who wish to develop their knowledge and understanding in the field of working with children.

Modules

The course consists of three terms each year. The first term is focused on ensuring you develop the study and management skills necessary to be successful at degree level. It will ensure you know how to research material and extract relevant information, write an academic essay, a report, reference correctly, plan your time effectively and work in a team. The second term focuses on Supporting Access to Education and Learning. Assessment for this module will be via a reflective learning journal, group presentation and an essay. In term three, we will outline what work-based learning means and how it should be carried out to meet the needs of the course alongside a module in Teaching and Professionalism and Reflective Practice. Year 2 modules include: Work-Focused Project, Safeguarding, Inclusive Education, Social Pedagogy and Understanding and Managing Human Behaviour.

Assessment methods

Assessment includes essays, reports, individual and group presentations and case studies. There are now exams. These strategies are also designed to enable the development of key transferable skills in the workplace.
