Eligibility is restricted to Supply LSE’s (in employment) who are in possession of the 10-week compulsory course (Certificate of Attendance Course, Supporting Students with Individual Educational Needs) organised by the SSD, or the MCAST Award in Inclusive Education, or an equivalent certificate of competence to the MCAST Award in Inclusive Education. This course is intended to consolidate and upgrade the skills, knowledge and competences attained so far.

Successful completion of this course paves the way for successive Inclusive Education Courses leading up to the Degree in Inclusive Education through a modular design, approach and delivery specifically targeted for mature students.

Teaching and learning approaches:

This course encourages active and collaborative learning to enhance and complement students already engaged as LSEs. Lecturers seek to support the engagement of students with material covered during lectures. This course promotes discussions and the creation of a learning community. Through their practical placement students are encouraged to reflect, analyse and evaluate theoretical knowledge gained during lectures into attitudes and skills.

Assessment procedures:

The assessment of MCAST courses is continuous in nature using a variety of assessment tools including written assignments, presentations, group work and time constrained assignments (TCA). This assessment is based on criteria and thus lecturers are required to assess learners’ work against a pre-determined set of Learning Outcomes and assessment criteria.
