Childhood (Special Educational Needs and Inclusion)

Nottingham Trent University

UCAS Course code X361

Overview

This degree develops your understanding of childhood, as well as the theories of disability and inclusion. It equips you with the knowledge and practical strategies required to meet the needs of children from diverse backgrounds, or with a range of special educational needs, such as autistic spectrum disorders, learning difficulties and sensory impairments.
Explore how children learn and develop through their behaviour, cultural perspectives and the effect of the environment. As you develop and broaden your understanding of childhood, you will undertake research enquiries and placement opportunities, enabling you to reflect critically on perspectives of childhood.

In each year of the course, you will further develop your understanding of special educational needs and inclusion. You will explore the use of effective and inclusive communication, the difficulties and complexities that children with additional needs or learning difficulties face as well as discrimination, stereotypes, and minority groups within the context of society.
The broad range of modules available within this course gives opportunities for you to develop both personally as a learner and professionally by incorporating the world of work and global perspectives into your studies. Key transferable skills are embedded in the modules, and are reinforced whilst working alongside experienced practitioners.
You’ll have the opportunity for work-based learning in a variety of settings, including the chance to undertake an international experience. This experience, along with the core modules you will study, will develop your skills, knowledge and understanding of how to work successfully as a practitioner in the childhood sector.
