Dirigido

The Management of Special Education in Developing Countries programme is for teachers, administrators and NGO staff who are working in special education in developing countries and who wish to develop their management or leadership expertise. The programme combines modules in Special Education with modules in International Studies in Education, using theory and practice from both in order to enable participants to improve management practice in the national context in which they work.

Programa

In consultation with tutors, students choose modules from those available in International Studies in Education and Special Educational Needs programmes, with a minimum of two modules from either field.

International Studies in Education

Students can choose from the following modules:

Autumn:

Education as an International Issue (strongly recommended)
Education Observation, Evaluation and Supervision
Spring:

Citizenship, Human Rights and the Environment
Personal and Professional Skills for Education Managers
Curriculum Design in Global Contexts
Leadership for School Improvement
Special Educational Needs

Students can choose from the following modules:

Autumn:

Special Educational Needs of Children with Autism
SEBD Identification, Assessment and Provisions
Spring:

Curriculum and Approaches for Pupils with Autism
Cross Cultural Issues in SEND
SEND Practice Based Research
Each module is taught in either term one or term two of the academic year. Teaching takes place during three-hour sessions, once per week per module. Teaching methods include seminars, small group discussions, and presentations by participants. Assessment is through written assignments (normally one major essay per module) and other means, and can be based on your interests. Dissertation topics are negotiated with supervisors and the research and writing process takes place over the whole year, but mainly during the summer months.

The modules listed on our website may occasionally be subject to change. For example, as you will appreciate, key members of staff may leave the University and this might necessitate a review of the modules that are offered. Where a module is no longer available, we will let you know as soon as we can and help you make other choices.

The MA in Management of Special Education in Developing Countries is ideal for graduates who wish to develop their management or leadership expertise within special education. Upon completion of this course, you will have experience in managing a variety of learning needs within your school and support colleagues to take a more inclusive approach in their own pedagogy.

With this Master’s degree, graduates will become eligible to apply for a range of international posts in relation to SEN, Community-Based Rehabilitation (CBR), and project management. Sites such as ‘Devnet’ and ‘UN Jobs’ provide many examples of relevant opportunities.
