This Master’s degree explores alternative pedagogic approaches to special needs education through the medium of practical skills. It focuses on the process of transformative learning as a continuous, ongoing creative act. The use of practical skills in learning creates the potential for transformation in young people, as learners. As part of this programme, participants will have the opportunity to engage in craftwork such as green woodwork, iron age forge and textiles, and in land work, in order to explore their pedagogic potential. This programme is open to internal and external participants.
