Federation University Australia - Online

Course outline

Our Graduate Certificate in Specialist Teaching (Inclusive Education) is designed according to contemporary research and evidence that enables already qualified teachers to build specialised knowledge about catering for diversity in educational contexts. Teachers will learn how to support full participation, engagement and involvement for students with diverse learning needs, including gifted and talented students.
The course is framed by fundamental philosophies of social justice and human rights and core disability theories. A strong focus of the course is on social and emotional learning and strategies for promoting wellbeing for staff, students and families.
This program can be completed online/blended and is delivered part-time over 1 year.

Upon completion of the Graduate Certificate in Specialist Teaching (Inclusive Education) you may choose to pathway to our Master of Specialist Teaching (Inclusive Education) with full credit.

We encourage you to view our recent webinar to find out more about the course.
