The Professional Diploma/Certificate in Special and Inclusive Education, a collaborative programme run by DCU Institute of Education and ICEP Europe celebrated its 10th birthday last week. Dr. Aoife Brennan, Rosie Savage (DCU, Programme Chair) and Dr. Deirdre MacIntyre (Director, ICEP Europe) welcomed 52 new students from Ireland and abroad onto the course last week at the Induction Day held in DCU, Drumcondra.
A Department of Education funded initiative, the Professional Diploma has been running since 2008 and has seen over 1000 students throughout its lifespan. As the course is 100% online, students on the course are located across the globe. Recent graduates include students from Ireland, India, the Middle East, the UK, America, Brazil and Australia.
This specialist qualification allows teachers and other professionals to progress in their careers and cater effectively for the diverse needs of students with special educational needs in a wide range of today’s inclusive schools and classrooms. It provides educators with the skills necessary to affect whole school collaboration and implement inclusive practice.
The next intake for this programme is September 2018. For more information, click here, or to discuss this programme further please contact Aoife on +353 1 651 0914 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
