This new programme is aimed at students who want to make a difference to the lives of a wide range of children in education. You will investigate inclusive educational practices in Scotland, the UK and across the world. You will study particular approaches to removing barriers to learning and including all children.
Whether your interest is as a practitioner, or in the area of policy or training, this programme offers those skills and the opportunity to develop them in one of the world’s leading environments for understanding inclusive education.
You may already be working in the field and would like to take your skills to an advanced level. Alternatively, you could be a qualified teacher looking to expand your understanding of inclusive pedagogy. Either way, you will gain the insights you need to succeed, and learn how to apply them in relevant contexts. You will develop extended skills in research and enquiry, and build confidence in engaging with policymakers and other education professionals.
Suiting newly qualified teachers and experienced practitioners alike, this programme provides a qualification that can open doors to a new career in inclusive education, or an advanced role in the field. It can also provide the foundations for a career in policy formation and development, as well
as a broad range of highly transferable skills, such as communication and project management, which can be applied to roles in any field.
