ADSHE Level 5 course: Teaching Students with Specific Learning Differences in FE & HE

Enrolment is NOW OPEN for our Level 5 course, running from January 2023 until March 2024.

***Prices frozen at 2021 rates***

In collaboration with the Open College Network London (OCN), the course is designed to enable you to become Specialist Study Skills and Support Tutors and teach post-16’s with Specific Learning Differences (SpLDs). The course will look at how adults learn and potential barriers to learning that SpLD students can face.  Using the ADSHE 7-Principles® as a guide, strategies to support adult learning will be examined and you will learn how to help students develop their own personal strategies. Additionally, the course will provide you with a background knowledge of the legislation impacting on students and any additional needs they might have. You will gain an understanding of different SpLDs and how they might impact on students studying in post-16 educational institutions.

The course has gained BDA ATS FE/HE accredited status, allowing progression to a further Level 7 course, should participants wish to become a post-16 assessor in the future. Please note, this course does not provide a general teaching qualification to work with Autism Spectrum Condition students, or that for which some HEIs may require for DSA-funded work.

A small bursary may be available for those facing financial hardship.
