Cert Ed Certificate in Education 14+ Teaching Learners with Additional Needs

University of Bolton

Course Details

Achieving your potential can be difficult for everyone – but especially for young people and adults with behavioural or emotional challenges, physical or cognitive disabilities, sensory impairments, communication difficulties or learning differences. Teaching Learners with Additional Needs (TLAN) can be an exceptionally rewarding, if demanding, career. If you have the commitment, courage and patience then this course offers you the knowledge and skills to help others develop their understanding, confidence or independence, enabling you to transform lives.

Through a combination of traditional study and work-based learning, you’ll be able to explore the key theories and techniques of teaching, learning and assessment for all learners, focusing especially on TLAN. TLAN offers enormous scope. For instance, you might teach personal independence and social skills to people with profound learning difficulties, help students in pupil referral units or prisons learn basic Maths and English, or support learners with hearing or visual impairments to develop employability skills.

We’ll guide you as you learn to plan and deliver lessons and explore a range of disabilities and specific learning difficulties. Our expert and supportive tutors will work to help you become an expert, engaging and inclusive teacher with high standards of professionalism.
