Master of Inclusive Education and Graduate Certificate Initiative

The Master of Inclusive Education   and Graduate Certificate in Education (Learning Difficulties)  Initiative aims to deepen the disciplinary knowledge and pedagogical practice of teachers and regional workforces, so they have the skills, expertise, and confidence to meet the needs of students with disability and additional learning needs or learning difficulties.
