Course summary

Transform the lives of people with disabilities and neurological motor disorders to help them as independent as possible with our BA (Hons) in Conductive Education. Delivered by the National Institute of Conductive Education (NICE), this unique course is the only one in the UK to qualify you as a professional conductor to work with children and/or adults with physical disabilities. The course is structured across six semesters. Each semester lasts 15 weeks, therefore you are expected to study for a minimum of 30 weeks per year. Over the three years you will learn about topics such as neurological motor disorders, the professional skills needed to teach and develop skills including movement, confidence, understanding and communication, conductive practice and the work of professionals in the field. You will be taught at the Conductive College, located in Moseley, which is a dedicated training space specifically for professionals, families and carers in the field of Conductive Education. Courses, leading to a qualification, will be accredited by Birmingham City University. The conductive college is a key tool for the development of Conductive Education in the future and an essential part of the work of the NICE - the unique charity that believes every person with a movement disorder has the right to specialised services which meet their needs. You will also start to learn about carrying out research and begin to investigate theoretical concepts in the light of practical experience and knowledge. By the end of the course, you will have covered a range of academic subjects, all of which will enhance your ability to work as a professional conductor in a range of different countries or cultures.
