Spring teaching

The module aims to give you a deep understanding of the needs of pupils, as well as the approaches used to develop inclusive environments through an exploration of narrative accounts of young people with diverse needs.

You will learn how to identify learners with diverse and individual needs, in addition to their strengths and difficulties within education settings.

You’ll develop an understanding of different types of needs by exploring the lived realties of children and young people with diverse backgrounds.

You’ll also explore the statutory guidance, laws, policies and frameworks within society which support inclusion, and the implications within practice.
