Education - Working with Children with Literacy Difficulties
We have designed our PGCert Education – Working with Children with Literacy Difficulties in collaboration with the Oxfordshire Local Authority.
This course is for those who want to lead on work with children with literacy difficulties in primary and secondary schools. It is ideal for experienced teachers and graduate teaching assistants.
You will have the opportunity to:
- network with other practitioners
- access information about local jobs specialising in work in the sector.
Our School of Education combines high quality teaching, significant research and consultancy activity. We teach in collaboration with the Oxfordshire Local Authority. This reflects a long standing, ongoing partnership with the Authority and local practitioners.
The course meets the criteria for the taught elements of Associate Membership to the British Dyslexia Association (AMBDA). You can apply for full AMBDA status by completing additional observed and mentored practice with a qualified AMBDA practitioner. You can organise this through the course for an additional fee.
How to apply
Applications for this course are currently closed and will reopen in October for 2020 entry.
