Education has an extraordinary impact on people’s lives. Do you want to work in education, but not be tied to a classroom? Our course will give you the skills to make a difference in a wide range of education careers.
What are the key barriers to becoming a life-long learner? How do people learn best? How do social issues impact on our education system? These and many more questions are explored throughout our new Education degree which examines the rich perspectives of the interdisciplinary framework.
Studying our BA (Hons) Education course means you’ll get to the heart of a range of both historical and contemporary issues which shape the current UK education system. You’ll unpick issues of social justice, inclusion, diversity and equality in education, and consider the impact of social policy in the management of these issues. By the end of our course, you’ll have developed your ability to critically reflect on these hot topics, and will have a broad and balanced view supported by theoretical knowledge and research evidence.
We’re mindful that education extends well beyond the classroom context. Maybe you’re a budding entrepreneur who dreams of running your own education enterprise, or maybe you’re destined to make a difference in the charity sector? Our holistic approach means you’ll explore both learning inside and outside of the classroom, preparing you to make a difference in a wide range of education careers.
Study flexibly with us, full or part-time and we’ll equip you with the knowledge and skills to push the boundaries of education and make a difference.
Education is about more than learning inside the classroom. Throughout our BA (Hons) Education, you’ll have opportunities to volunteer in a range of educational settings so you can get direct experience of professional practice first hand. On graduation, you’ll be armed with the knowledge, skills and professional standards meaning you’ll be ready to work in the wider education arena.
Our course will equip you for a career facilitating life-long learning in a variety of contexts, from outreach organisations, to healthcare providers to policy-making bodies. Perhaps you’ve always dreamed of launching your own Education based charity or enterprise? We’ll help you realise your ambitions and prepare you for your future education career, wherever it may be.
Further examples of the wide range of roles our course can lead you to include such as charities, local authorities and multi-academy trusts, schools, further education organisations, educational resource developers, assessment organisations, higher education organisations, policy-making bodies, not for profits and NGOs. Wherever, and whatever, your future educational career, our course will help you prepare for it.
It’s important to us that you leave our course as a well-rounded education practitioner, so throughout our course we aim to provide the necessary support and tools for you to succeed. We’ll give you the opportunities to flourish as an autonomous, active learner through providing you with on-going feedback and personalised teaching approaches and resources based on learner needs, interests and experiences.
We’ve built a wide range of assessments into our course to allow you to demonstrate your learning in the modules, and to ensure you’re developing the knowledge and skills you’ll need for a career in education. These assessments can include presentations, essays, reports, poster displays and portfolios.
