If you have non-standard qualifications or do not quite meet the admissions requirements for the BA SEN and Inclusion, the University of Northampton can offer you a fantastic opportunity to study a four year BA SEN and Inclusion programme which includes a Foundation Year that will help you develop the subject knowledge and academic skills you need in order to successfully progress to the full award.

Career opportunities in this field are increasing across disciplines and contexts; there is a varied range of opportunities from specialist work with specific groups of children, young people and adults to support, advocatory, advisory, organisational and administrative roles in both statutory and non-statutory services.

Billing Brook is an all age special school for pupils aged 3 - 19 with a wide range of learning difficulties. This includes moderate or severe learning difficulties; speech, language and communication needs; some medical difficulties and an all age specialist autism provision.

Building on the context and understanding gained in year one, the second year facilitates a deeper exploration of the four areas of SEN outlined in the Code of Practice, as well as continuing the focus on employability and multi-professional practice, and increasing comparative understanding of international policy and practice.

A Multi-Faith Chaplaincy and Medical Centre (providing a full GP service and free counselling) are also available at Park Campus.

In addition to standard entry requirements, applicants are normally expected to hold English and Mathematics equivalent to a GCSE grade C. A typical offer is between 260-300 UCAS tariff points. Applicants are expected to demonstrate commitment to inclusive practices. DBS clearance is required
