The aim of the Graduate Diploma of Special Education is to provide a coherent program of study and professional experience to prepare students for the advanced professional duties of a qualified special educator working in either inclusive or specialised settings. The program focuses on evidence-based practice and the practical application of skills and knowledge to teaching practice. The program incorporates flexible modes of delivery and is particularly suited to part-time study for practising professionals. Professional experience is an integral part of the program. A prior teaching qualification is not required unless you want to work as a special education teacher in schools.
