Course description

Special Educational Needs (SEN) - Advanced

With the right support, people with special educational needs have a higher chance of leading happy, fulfilling and successful lives. This is why it is important that carers, teachers, parents, teaching assistants and society as whole are educated in this area. This Advanced Special Education Needs qualification is a step up from our Special Education Needs course; allowing Stonebridge College students to develop a deeper understanding and greater awareness of this complex issue.

This online qualification begins by defining the key principles of special education needs. As our learners progress through the work, they will soon be able to explain the two models of disability and understand how to effectively assess and identify moderate learning difficulties. The special educational needs training course then goes on to investigate topics like autism, speech and language and emotional difficulties.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Who should study this course?

This advanced level course is an ideal step up for anyone who has completed our standard SEN course. The qualification also promises to come in useful for anyone who works or spends time with people with learning difficulties.

Although the standard SEN course may come in useful, it is not essential to study this one first. If students are confident in their abilities, they may progress directly on to this course. All we ask is that our learners are willing to dedicate time to independent home study.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this special needs education home study qualification students will have an in depth knowledge of the issues and practises surrounding SEN. If they wish to extend on this, they may choose to apply for a degree in a related area.

SEN teachers work in specialist SEN schools, nurseries or even colleges. This job offers great satisfaction and earning potential. More jobs related to this course include:

  • Teaching assistant
  • Carer
