PUBLISHED: 13:00 26 December 2012
A WESTON College degree course aimed at people working with those who have learning difficulties has been given top honours at a national education conference.
The degree in inclusive practice was honoured with a Beacon Award at the Association of Colleges (AoC) annual conference.
Presented by the City & Guilds organisation, the award recognises outstanding practice in staff development at further education level.
The inclusive practise course was the first qualification of its kind in the country, and almost 50 college staff members have taken it with a 100 per cent pass rate.
The degree initially specialised in autism but has expanded to include behaviour for learning and literacy difficulties.
