Gain an understanding of the challenges, complexities and rewards of inclusive practice in education. This two-year accelerated degree will help you develop your identity as an emerging practitioner, working with children and young people across the 3-18-year age range within mainstream and specialist settings.

You will examine how children learn from a psychological perspective and identify ways in which you can support their needs through building examples of best teaching practice, removing barriers to participation and creating inclusive and enabling environments.

You will explore what it means to celebrate diversity, considering the role of language and culture, how to support children with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND), and investigate the importance of whole school approaches when working with displaced children. Through this study, you will begin to develop ideas to promote inclusion for all learners.

Working with different stakeholders in educational settings, you will gain an understanding of the policy and practice behind collaborative working.  You will also demonstrate knowledge of a range of social, economic, political and cultural issues that have shaped the education system over time and have ultimately impacted children’s life chances.

Investigating associated research and practices from around the world, you will identify global perspectives on current issues, such as mental health and wellbeing, and you will document your findings in the form of a literature review for your dissertation.

In your final year, you will undertake a unique research experience drawing on the creative arts to investigate and present a research journey that explores how to engage and empower particular learners.

You will join a community of like-minded peers and teaching experts in the Carnegie School of Education. Our specialist team draws together academics and industry professionals who continue to shape and influence policy in education, including Professor Jonathan Glazzard whose research is helping to transform mental health in schools.

Through professional experiences and work-related activities, you will have the opportunity to attend both mainstream and wider educational settings, including specialist schools and charitable organisations, either in the UK or abroad. You will reflect upon your experience from both settings as part of your module assessment.

Guest lectures and networking events will further refine your knowledge, allowing you to learn from researchers and people working in the field. You will also be supported to develop a professional portfolio, as well as presentation and interview skills, through carefully designed taught elements and assessments to help you prepare for your future career aspirations.
