Level 4 Award in Special Educational Needs, Inclusivity and Diversity (CPD accredited)
Inclusive and specialised education courses typically focus on the role of the SENCO coordinator. At Lear Training, we advocate for all learners' educational rights, those that are academically gifted and particularly those with impairments and learning disabilities. As a result, our CPD accredited course is designed to enhance your professional skills and develop research-based knowledge and understanding, allowing you to adopt and lead inclusive and specialised educational processes and practices in your daily teaching and training.
The course is open to teachers, trainers, teaching assistants, and members of other professions who would like to broaden their professional knowledge in inclusive and specialised education.
There has never been a better moment to become an educator who can make a difference in the lives of diverse students in a wide range of educational settings.
