Introduction to the SEND Course
Our SEND course consists of 22 individual modules that will take you through the entire process of teaching individuals with special needs. The course is designed to provide you with the tools that you will require in order to make a difference to how individuals are taught, and give you a better understanding of their requirements and the challenges they face.
By the end of the course you will be asked to take a test in order to show that you have understood the information provided throughout the various modules. This will then give you the knowledge to be able to work within this field.
What you will learn
Each module is designed to give you a real insight into the Special Education Needs industry from start to finish.
In addition, the modules will also cover the relevant code of practice that any practitioner within this field needs to be aware of to ensure that potentially vulnerable individuals are being taught in the correct manner.
As you move further into the course, you will be taken through various disabilities, both physical and mental, to provide you with a better understanding of how to handle their issues allowing them to make better progress than ever before.

Furthermore, our Special Education Needs course is designed to help you deal with issues that may arise at various times, including anger from the individuals you are dealing with on a daily basis. This is regarded as being an important skill for any educator to have at their disposal due to the nature of the work that they do, hence it being given its own module to give you the best possible insight into handling that situation. We will also provide you with information on psychological issues and behaviours to give you an all-round understanding of their needs.
