  • Advanced Diploma in Special Educational Needs at Level 8 (for those with prior credits at Level 7 or 8).

Both programs are equally relevant for teachers, education assistants, and teaching aides, as well as other professionals (e.g. educational psychologists, social care workers, support services).
