Graduate Certificate in Education - Special Education

Torrens University Australia

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Postgraduate
CRICOS: 03389E

The Graduate Certificate of Education (Special Education) takes a Design Thinking approach to analyse issues and challenges faced by persons with a range of additional learning needs. Informed by advanced theoretical knowledge, the Graduate Certificate of Education (Special Education) focuses on problem solving from a person first perspective. The person first approach allows situations to be tackled from the perspective of the individual, and by doing so shifts the focus from a passive acceptance from the person at the centre of the issue to a more active role where their individual needs are actively considered. The Graduate Certificate of Education (Special Education) also includes topics specific to issues facing contemporary educators, such as Autism, Mental Health and Learning Differences.
