A British Dyslexia Association (BDA) accredited Certificate in dyslexia and specific learning difficulties (SpLD).

  • Develop extensive knowledge of SpLD/Dyslexia through well-established and highly regarded modules.

  • Benefit from the opportunity to gain Approved Teacher/Practitioner Status (ATS/APS) from the BDA.

  • Learn through a mixture of daytime, weekend and twilight sessions designed to help you combine study and employment.

Broaden your individual career opportunities within and beyond the school context. If you're a teacher, or you already work in education (with school-aged learners), this course has been designed with you in mind.

Approximately 10% of learners have dyslexia. Schools recognise that they need to understand, identify and support children with dyslexia. By acquiring specialist teaching and assessment skills around dyslexia, you’ll be a valuable addition to the school team.

Our PGCert in SpLD/Dyslexia comprises two 30 credit modules that integrate both theory and practice. You’ll study through workshops, case studies and assignments, justifying your professional practice through research. Modules comprise taught sessions and assessed projects.

Our SpLD/Dyslexia PG Cert can be undertaken on a part-time basis. Through a mixture of theory and practice, you'll focus on how to identify assess needs and teach learners who may be dyslexic

Postgraduate Certificate - PgCert

Bath Spa University is about more than studying. It’s about getting stuck in: thinking, making and doing. About bumping into friends on campus, embracing challenges and genuinely caring. We push boundaries and ourselves. If that sounds good to you, you’ll fit in well.
