From 1st September 2014, a new system for supporting children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), and their parents, came into effect (SEND guides and information).  The new system aims to ensure that any support your child gets, from their school or other setting, such as their nursery or childminder, should meet their needs, these also include health needs.

Education (Special Educational Needs) is a combined honours subject. It can be studied with the following subjects. All course combinations result in a BA Hons degree.

Find out what other parents think about schools... join the No1 parents' community.

The course can also lead to work as a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO), an Inclusion Support Co-ordinator, Behaviour Support Worker or Learning Mentor. In addition, this course offers opportunities for employment in areas such as disability inclusion and as a disability support worker.

Graduates of this course have the opportunity to pursue a range of professional qualifications in the field of Education both within schools and in other settings. Many students choose to progress to a PGCE course at Liverpool Hope to train as a teacher, or continue their studies through a Masters in Education at the University.

The degree in Special Educational Needs provides an outstanding programme that includes insights from sociology, history, psychology and philosophy to inform understandings of special educational needs, disability and inclusion within educational settings.

Your child does not need an SEN diagnosis for you to receive advice or support.
