SEBDA’s Accredited Courses at Masters and first degree levels
Students enrolled on SEBDA’s accredited courses have access to the University of Leicester’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and online Library facilities. The SEBDA accredited courses enhance the experience of distance learners by using web supported learning. The VLE is the means by which students engage with each other and with their tutors as the courses progress. Students are also expected to engage in structured online discussion activities and personal reflections.

SEBDA courses are accredited by the University of Leicester. Our courses have been running for a number of years. Hundreds of students (teachers from special schools, PRUs, LSUs and other mainstream settings; teaching assistants; learning mentors; residential social workers and other professionals working with young people) have benefited from them. They are distance education programmes but with an introductory residential weekend.
