Course summary

Are you ready to develop a better understanding of the complex factors that can prevent children from reaching their potential? Our BA (Hons) Professional Studies in Education course is designed for you if you are working and supporting children in primary, secondary and special schools, or learners in further education colleges, and have a suitable Foundation Degree or diploma. It is one of the natural progression routes from our Foundation Degree in Professional Studies (Education). This course allows you to study and continue working. It is a flexible qualification covering issues in the primary and secondary phases, as well as within the lifelong learning sector, with the emphasis on formal education. Whilst studying for this course you’ll remain in employment, or as a volunteer. The progression route offers opportunities critically to evaluate practice through a detailed analysis of the systems, procedures and changes that contribute to your field of study. This course will promote your professional formation as a reflective practitioner, and modules will cover topics such as leading people and teams, promoting quality, new models of practice and contemporary issues (such as current political and social trends). In addition, the undertaking of an independent research study will support your continuing development toward becoming a leading practitioner. Find out more:
