Welcome to the Professional Learning Unit in the Faculty of Education.  We offer a number of options for postgraduate study, for teachers and other education professionals.  Our aim is to offer a broad range of the best possible Professional Learning and Practice Development experiences to practitioners from a range of professional practices and contexts such as:

  • The SENCo role
  • Teachers and other school-based educators
  • Professionals in youth and /or community work whose role is broadly educative
  • Professionals supporting young people with Special Educational Needs
  • Those working in a broadly educative role in the voluntary sector.

The staff supporting these programmes are experts in the field, as both practitioners and scholars/researchers, and are active members of a range of national and international research and practice networks. Many have served on National Expert Panels.  We are also research active, involved in a range of funded research projects, and national and international consultancy.
