Exploring topics on a local, national and global scale, you’ll learn about education from all perspectives and understand how you can make a significant difference to the lives of others. You will study a range of important educational topics including social justice and contemporary issues in education, which will fully prepare you for your professional career within the sector. It will provide a firm foundation for those who may be thinking about a career in teaching at any level, as well as those who may wish to work in the community or with organisations which have an educational component to their work. It is designed to maximise career opportunities in; museums, art galleries, church and faith organisations, prisons, hospitals, charities or international development. This degree will enable students to keep their options open regarding future employment, study and professional development. We offer work-based placements in the second and third year that help you to contextualise theoretical learning and examine contemporary educational issues in society. Lectures will underpin key concepts and inform critical thinking and seminars and tutorials will enable students to consider, formulate and sustain arguments. A mix of innovative and traditional methods will be used to assess learning.
You will take eight modules in each year of your course. Year One: All compulsory modules. Year Two: Six compulsory and two optional modules. Year Three: Four compulsory and four optional modules. Each set of optional modules contains specialist options in Education, SEND, and International Education. In your second and third year you will select modules that are pertinent to your degree route and future career pathway.
The key to a degree, and subsequent career, in education and teaching is communication. Therefore, there will be a range of methods to assess the knowledge, understanding and skills you will develop on the course. These will range from more traditional assessment methods such as essays, presentations, and examinations, to more education specific practices such as lesson plans, lesson commentaries and curriculum packs.
