Course Summary

The Severe, Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities (SPMLD) blended learning programme is one of the leading programmes in the field both nationally and internationally. The programme has been developed for a range of professionals/practitioners who work with children and adults with learning difficulties in educational settings across the severe and profound range (SLD/ PMLD) including autism (where it overlaps with SLD/ PMLD). Most learners with SLD/ PMLD use specialist services such as special schools or colleges but some use inclusive services in nurseries, mainstream schools or community education. The programme will cover issues for staff who work in any of these services and has particular emphasis on working together to meet needs. The programme will aim to study systematically, critically and in-depth, aspects of educating children and adults with severe, profound and multiple learning difficulties. The Severe, Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities distance learning programme aims to: enable participants to study systematically, critically and in-depth, aspects of educating children and adults with severe, profound and multiple learning difficulties that are relevant to their own practice; provide the support needed for participants to analyse critically and improve their own theory and practice with children and adults with severe, profound and multple learning difficulties
encourage participants to evaluate critically and develop their collaborative work across disciplines and agencies; facilitate participants in developing rigorous evidence-based practice. Students can also exit with Pgdip and Pgcert awards.
