Special Education Needs and Disability Diploma Course

Are you interested in working with people who have special needs, especially when it comes to dealing with their education? Would you like to experience the amazing feeling of knowing that you have helped an individual with specific needs to overcome adversity and to be able to teach them brand new skills? If so, then our Special Education Needs course will be perfect for any individual seeking a brand new career change allowing you to work within this field to a satisfactory standard.

Introduction to the SEND Course

Our SEND course consists of 22 individual modules that will take you through the entire process of teaching individuals with special needs.

The course is designed to provide you with the tools that you will require in order to make a difference in how individuals are taught and give you a better understanding of their requirements and the challenges they face.

By the end of the course, you will be asked to take a test in order to show that you have understood the information provided throughout the various modules. This will then give you the knowledge to be able to work within this field.

What you will learn

Each module is designed to give you a real insight into the Special Education Needs industry from start to finish. In addition, the modules will also cover the relevant code of practice that any practitioner within this field needs to be aware of to ensure that potentially vulnerable individuals are being taught in the correct manner.

Please note that as SEN systems vary in each nation of the UK - the code of practice implementation covered in Module 4 refers only to the system in England.

As you move further into the course, you will be taken through various disabilities, both physical and mental, to provide you with a better understanding of how to handle their issues allowing them to make better progress than ever before. There will also be specific details on issues such as autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia and ADHD, due to the complexities surrounding the handling of these issues.

Furthermore, our Special Education Needs course is designed to help you deal with issues that may arise at various times, including anger from the individuals you are dealing with on a daily basis. This is regarded as being an important skill for any educator to have at their disposal due to the nature of the work that they do, hence, it has its own module to give you the best possible insight into handling that situation.

We will also provide you with information on psychological issues and behaviours to give you an all-round understanding of their needs. Finally, you will be taught the latest and best teaching methods and strategies for this particular field, allowing you to better prepare each and every lesson to make sure that the individuals will be able to get the absolute most out of each session.

Once the course is completed, you will be better placed to work within this field and able to handle any situation that may arise throughout your working day.

You will learn:

  • An understanding of what is involved in SEND
  • The code of practice that you must abide by
  • How to understand various disabilities
  • How to cope with anger issues
  • The psychological impact and dealing with problems
  • How to best structure a class for each individual

What our students have to say...

Highly recommended study material

John To be honest I was sceptical at first. There are many online courses to choose from but what intrigued me the most about this course is the number of modules (22 of them). This appeared to be more detailed than others. The reason I took this course is because I started a new role as a support tutor for a large training company. I already had some experience in working with learners who had special needs and learning difficulties but wanted more in-depth knowledge and tips to support my delivery. I also wanted to know more on the legal of side of SEND too. I took the plunge and have been pleasantly surprised on how well it's been written and presented in manageable bite-size chunks. I was planning to study about a couple of hours a night but once I started I found it difficult to stop. It took me about 3 days to complete. The information is comprehensive but manageable. You can tell the person/persons who wrote this have a passion for supported learning and give practical strategies to support SEND and care about their sector and want to share their passion. Highly recommended study material. :-) John Grover - Byfleet

Manageable modules for learning

Ainsley The course covers all the necessary aspects of SEND education, and is produced in manageable modules for learning. In terms of value and content, I would rate this as one of the best online diploma courses. Ainsley Nugent - London

Christine Kim Grace De Guzman - London

This is an amazing course. Easy to follow and understand.

andrea-piesiur This is an amazing course. Easy to follow and understand. I am working with children already and I wanted to do a SEND course to extend my knowledge and able to work with a wide range of children including those with special needs. This course has twice the modules as an average SEND course, so it provides great knowledge in the subject. And this is perfect as it's CPD accredited course. And the price was just unbelievable!! The course has email tutor support and lifetime access to the course material which is brilliant for a mum, who is working currently as a volunteer to gain work experience. Andrea Piesiur – Gravesend

I enjoyed the learning experience

rebecca-dobson As a teacher I have experienced working with children with a range of learning and physical abilities. This course helped consolidate my knowledge and understanding gained during my 12 years of teaching and working with SEND children. It also added knowledge about the various diagnoses and categories and how to recognise them to support children's learning. I found the course easy to navigate, informative and I enjoyed the learning experience. In the future it will help me to think of the children in my care and how best to support their learning needs to achieve the best they can. I hope to someday specialise in working with children with SEND. Rebecca Dobson – Chelmsford

Not only was it super value for money, but really easy to use and work with.

kim-hudspith I had looked at a lot of different courses like this to help my CPD as an NQT. Not only was it super value for money, but really easy to use and work with. Having the opportunity to print or PDF information means I can keep any work as evidence. I have been very impressed with this course and will defiantly look to complete similar courses soon. Kim Hudspith – Blyth

Great course, lots of really good information

harriet-more Great course, lots of really good information which I could take my time over reading and making notes. I could then understand and learn through the content. It has definitely already helped my teaching and will continue to be a source of reference. Harriet More - Bath

Thank you so much. Online learning, way to go.

A very practical course, suits my busy lifestyle. Thank you so much. Online learning, way to go. I work with adults with learning disabilities and difficulties. Over the years I have learned so much by doing, it was great to put theory into my practice. It was great to see the similarities of how schools work in comparison to adult education. I am so inspired I am now looking for specific courses that will deepen my understanding of special educational needs. Once again, thank you for providing an insight into the world of special educational needs, online. Enjoyed reading the theories, took me back to my youth. Dimple Patel - Essex

I now feel more confident

This course was excellent, detailed and enjoyable. It gave me lots of information and helped me develop my skills and knowledge to assist facilitate learning of students that have special educational needs. It outlined the main conditions that fall into the categories of SEND and a detailed explanation of them. This course also gave me lots of ideas on how to assist learners and the confidence of how to develop my teaching resources. It also highlighted the relevant legislation covering special educational needs and gave me important information regarding the roles and responsibilities of the SENCO and the teacher in supporting learners. I now feel more confident that I will be able to support these students better. Emma Louise Dalton - Macclesfield
Never give up on your goals in life.
Started the course very optimistic but once started felt more at ease.
Clear vocal reading on the course which wasn't rushed. So helped with reading along with each module.
Explained a little on each child's differences but also had links to find out more which is very useful.
Also if your like me I didn't pass first go but don't give up you can do it.
So proud of myself. Michelle Selby
I Found this course very informative and easy to follow, I particularly liked how I can use different styles of learning to ensure it suits any needs or preferences you may have I prefer to listen to content and review captions.
I definitely recommend this course for underpinning knowledge on the sen role. Sarah Foster
Brilliant course covering everything you need to learn about Special Educational Needs.
Can study in your own time and being a mum myself to a SEN son this was if great benefit Jonine McCoy
I learnt so much. I am now able to take this forward into my career which will open many pathways for me. Megan Ivy Parsons
I really enjoyed learning about SEN. There is so much information that can help us improve SEN kids learning process. We as teachers must implement these techniques to improve our education system and it will be reflected in student's performance at the end of the term. We must work as a team, parents, schools, teachers, governments and local authorities to create a better learning environment in every school in the UK. Camilo Huertas
This course was very informative and full of so much important information I believe will help and support me with in my current job (in a nursery). I loved that the course was something that I could dip into as and when I pleased and that there is not a time limit or expiration date as this meant I was able to do it along side my current job and i felt more motivated to do it as if feeling tired one week I knew their was plenty of time to continue it in another week. I would recommend this course to those in a child care setting and also recommend the courses on this site for those who want to learn whilst working. Emily Daly
I have enjoyed the course and learnt a lot from it, which will help further my career choice in addition to help with my own son. I would definitely recommend the course to anyone wanting to know more about SEN or to help their carrer choice. Kelly O'Brien
Very interesting and informative course, I especially enjoyed the history of SEN. Liane Johnson
This course was clear, concise and an excellent source of information regarding the aspect of SEND in the workplace and the roles of all involved in supporting this area of education. I would highly recommend to newbies and experienced staff as an introduction, or refresher course, to help support your own work in providing all children's educational opportunities. Tamsin Corrick
I really enjoyed this course, it was a refresh from what I've studied in the past. I opted for this course with my son currently being assessed for Autism, so its been very beneficial to me being able to understand our journey much clearer.

John To be honest I was sceptical at first. There are many online courses to choose from but what intrigued me the most about this course is the number of modules (22 of them). This appeared to be more detailed than others. The reason I took this course is because I started a new role as a support tutor for a large training company. I already had some experience in working with learners who had special needs and learning difficulties but wanted more in-depth knowledge and tips to support my delivery. I also wanted to know more on the legal of side of SEND too. I took the plunge and have been pleasantly surprised on how well it's been written and presented in manageable bite-size chunks. I was planning to study about a couple of hours a night but once I started I found it difficult to stop. It took me about 3 days to complete. The information is comprehensive but manageable. You can tell the person/persons who wrote this have a passion for supported learning and give practical strategies to support SEND and care about their sector and want to share their passion. Highly recommended study material. :-) John Grover - Byfleet

This is an amazing course. Easy to follow and understand.

andrea-piesiur This is an amazing course. Easy to follow and understand. I am working with children already and I wanted to do a SEND course to extend my knowledge and able to work with a wide range of children including those with special needs. This course has twice the modules as an average SEND course, so it provides great knowledge in the subject. And this is perfect as it's CPD accredited course. And the price was just unbelievable!! The course has email tutor support and lifetime access to the course material which is brilliant for a mum, who is working currently as a volunteer to gain work experience. Andrea Piesiur – Gravesend

I enjoyed the learning experience

rebecca-dobson As a teacher I have experienced working with children with a range of learning and physical abilities. This course helped consolidate my knowledge and understanding gained during my 12 years of teaching and working with SEND children. It also added knowledge about the various diagnoses and categories and how to recognise them to support children's learning. I found the course easy to navigate, informative and I enjoyed the learning experience. In the future it will help me to think of the children in my care and how best to support their learning needs to achieve the best they can. I hope to someday specialise in working with children with SEND. Rebecca Dobson – Chelmsford

Not only was it super value for money, but really easy to use and work with.

kim-hudspith I had looked at a lot of different courses like this to help my CPD as an NQT. Not only was it super value for money, but really easy to use and work with. Having the opportunity to print or PDF information means I can keep any work as evidence. I have been very impressed with this course and will defiantly look to complete similar courses soon. Kim Hudspith – Blyth

Great course, lots of really good information

harriet-more Great course, lots of really good information which I could take my time over reading and making notes. I could then understand and learn through the content. It has definitely already helped my teaching and will continue to be a source of reference. Harriet More - Bath

Thank you so much. Online learning, way to go.

A very practical course, suits my busy lifestyle. Thank you so much. Online learning, way to go. I work with adults with learning disabilities and difficulties. Over the years I have learned so much by doing, it was great to put theory into my practice. It was great to see the similarities of how schools work in comparison to adult education. I am so inspired I am now looking for specific courses that will deepen my understanding of special educational needs. Once again, thank you for providing an insight into the world of special educational needs, online. Enjoyed reading the theories, took me back to my youth. Dimple Patel - Essex

I now feel more confident

This course was excellent, detailed and enjoyable. It gave me lots of information and helped me develop my skills and knowledge to assist facilitate learning of students that have special educational needs. It outlined the main conditions that fall into the categories of SEND and a detailed explanation of them. This course also gave me lots of ideas on how to assist learners and the confidence of how to develop my teaching resources. It also highlighted the relevant legislation covering special educational needs and gave me important information regarding the roles and responsibilities of the SENCO and the teacher in supporting learners. I now feel more confident that I will be able to support these students better. Emma Louise Dalton - Macclesfield
Never give up on your goals in life.
Started the course very optimistic but once started felt more at ease.
Clear vocal reading on the course which wasn't rushed. So helped with reading along with each module.
Explained a little on each child's differences but also had links to find out more which is very useful.
Also if your like me I didn't pass first go but don't give up you can do it.
So proud of myself. Michelle Selby
I Found this course very informative and easy to follow, I particularly liked how I can use different styles of learning to ensure it suits any needs or preferences you may have I prefer to listen to content and review captions.
I definitely recommend this course for underpinning knowledge on the sen role. Sarah Foster
Brilliant course covering everything you need to learn about Special Educational Needs.
Can study in your own time and being a mum myself to a SEN son this was if great benefit Jonine McCoy
I learnt so much. I am now able to take this forward into my career which will open many pathways for me. Megan Ivy Parsons
I really enjoyed learning about SEN. There is so much information that can help us improve SEN kids learning process. We as teachers must implement these techniques to improve our education system and it will be reflected in student's performance at the end of the term. We must work as a team, parents, schools, teachers, governments and local authorities to create a better learning environment in every school in the UK. Camilo Huertas
This course was very informative and full of so much important information I believe will help and support me with in my current job (in a nursery). I loved that the course was something that I could dip into as and when I pleased and that there is not a time limit or expiration date as this meant I was able to do it along side my current job and i felt more motivated to do it as if feeling tired one week I knew their was plenty of time to continue it in another week. I would recommend this course to those in a child care setting and also recommend the courses on this site for those who want to learn whilst working. Emily Daly
I have enjoyed the course and learnt a lot from it, which will help further my career choice in addition to help with my own son. I would definitely recommend the course to anyone wanting to know more about SEN or to help their carrer choice. Kelly O'Brien
Very interesting and informative course, I especially enjoyed the history of SEN. Liane Johnson
This course was clear, concise and an excellent source of information regarding the aspect of SEND in the workplace and the roles of all involved in supporting this area of education. I would highly recommend to newbies and experienced staff as an introduction, or refresher course, to help support your own work in providing all children's educational opportunities. Tamsin Corrick
I really enjoyed this course, it was a refresh from what I've studied in the past. I opted for this course with my son currently being assessed for Autism, so its been very beneficial to me being able to understand our journey much clearer.
Thank you! Stephanie szklanka
