About this course? This newly developed, strongly vocational degree is designed for those seeking a fulfilling career working in schools, while not wishing to immediately gain qualified teacher status. The only undergraduate course of its kind in London, Primary Education is ideal for those already working as a teaching assistant (TA), secondary or primary, and looking for career progression. It's equally ideal for sixth-form leavers seeking a hands-on, practical route into the education sector and the many careers it offers. Topics covered include:
  • Becoming an Education Practitioner (Professional Practice)
  • Understanding Inclusion (Special and Inclusive Education)
  • Learning Beyond the Classroom
  • Exploring Creativity
Skills: Our priority is ensuring that you graduate with a professional skillset. This incorporates;
  • A hands-on, practical route into the education sector.
  • Gain a deep understanding of working life in schools, the education system and the issues faced by classroom practitioners.
  • Those with Teaching Assistant experience, can become an accredited Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HTLA), formally recognised as a graduate level outcome.
These three strands will ensure that you are ready for the practical realities of the education sector. Career opportunities: Graduates of BA Primary Education Studies will be prepared to secure a variety of roles, such as:
  • Working as an education professional in primary and nursery care (teaching, administration or management).
  • A special needs professional in schools, children centres and the community.
  • Third sector (e.g., charities, NGOs, social enterprises).
