If you have a bachelor’s degree, this Master’s level qualification aims to build on your personal strengths and interests to help you become an effective and creative teacher of people aged 14 and over who have additional needs.
Achieving your potential can be difficult for everyone - but especially for young people and adults with social, mental health, behavioural or emotional challenges, physical or cognitive disabilities, sensory impairments, communication difficulties or learning differences.

If you have the commitment, courage and patience then this Initial Teacher Education (ITE) course offers you the knowledge and skills to help others develop their understanding, confidence or independence, enabling you to transform lives. Offering 60 credits at Master’s level that can be transferred to a full Master’s award, it’s designed to show your ability to work independently at a high level in the field of education.
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. We’ll guide you as you learn to plan and deliver lessons and explore a range of additional needs. Our expert and supportive tutors will work to help you become an expert, engaging and inclusive teacher with high standards of professionalism.

This course focuses on teaching learners with additional needs. You could therefore be specifically employed to work with young people who need additional support or who require an advanced programme of learning in order to reach their full potential. Many TLAN teachers/lecturers work with individuals who have physical disabilities, sensory impairments, learning difficulties such as dyslexia, social or mental health needs or a combination of these difficulties.
