Why Study MA Education SEND (Special Education Needs and Disability)?

This new Education SEND (Special Education Needs and Disability) programme from Middlesex University Dubai aims to provide students with a systematic understanding and critical awareness of models and frameworks of coaching and mentoring. This pathway will provide students with the experience of coaching in the workplace, including a range of theories related to emotional intelligence, psychology and personal and organisational change and development.

There will be a focus on educational contexts. The module seeks to engage students in critical discussion and application of opportunities for coaching and mentoring within a range of educational settings.

As part of the SEND Pathway module, students will be encouraged to participate in a non-compulsory, three-day practical coaching training which will equip them with specific coaching skills at a foundation level. This training will be offered in conjunction with professional certifying partner such as ‘The Performance Coach’, a UK-certified organisation who will provide students with an additional coaching certification which is recognised by EMCC (European Mentoring and Coaching Council). This optional certification will be offered at an additional cost to the student.

Future Careers and Employability

The proposed MA Education (SEND) pathway in addition to the training provided by ‘The Performance Coach’ will enable students to embark on a number of career routes. It is ideal for those in a senior leadership or line management role who are looking to build a coaching culture within their organisation to enhance employee performance.

For others they could embark on a second career as a professional freelance coach and/or gain employment or further develop their careers in the following areas:

  • Business development
  • Consultancy work
  • Mentoring
  • Education
  • Leadership

  • Special Education Needs and Disability: Inclusive Practice and Leadership – This module examines SEND and inclusive education provisions in both local and international contexts. Students will explore the latest knowledge in best practice, research, and policy in SEND.
