You will extend the skills exhibited at the conclusion of the Cert Ed in respect of specialist subject areas, so as to enhance capability for professional development in focused areas.

Units

  • Action Research (TPD018-2) Compulsory
  • Teaching Learners With Additional Learning Needs (TPD019-2) Compulsory

Assessment has been designed to give participants experience of a wide range of assessment tools. The specific focus of each assignment will be negotiated individually between the unit tutor and the learner, within the parameters of the unit, in order to ensure that the assignment meets the personal and professional needs of the student. The assessments for the 30 credit unit require the production of a teaching portfolio, case study and literature review, enabling you to engage in reflective teaching practice but also to focus on a single learner with additional needs and to look in greater depth at one particular disability or learning difficulty. The action research project again focuses on classroom practice but specifically aims at analysing teaching in a specialist area of disability and bringing about improvement. You will undertake 50 hours of teaching and 4 assessed observations of teaching (all within the specialist area) of supporting learners with additional needs.
