Autism Postgraduate Certificate

Outline

A one year course, comprised of two Master’s level modules. Each module is formally assessed through a 5,000 word equivalent assessment. The assessments include: presentations, essays and portfolios of evidence from practice in the field.

You will gain a critical, theoretical and practical understanding of the diverse learning requirements of pupils and students who identify with the wide spectrum of autism. It is designed to enable the participant to develop a critical understanding of autism, relevant legislation, education policy and interventions.

The course content is informed by the experiences and voices of those with autism and our approach is underpinned by the inclusive principle “nothing about us without us”.

This course will develop your ability to analyse critically and build upon your own attitudes, professional experience and practice including the promotion of social justice, inclusion, and equity as a policy and a practice.
