The BA (Hons) Education and Training is designed to be appropriate for education and training practitioners across all sectors who want to complete an undergraduate qualification and is a suitable progression route for further professional development. The course is committed to a combination of theoretical analysis and evaluation, critical inquiry, reflective practice and research. The historical, political, economic and social contexts of education and training will be studied. The intention is to develop the practitioner-as-researcher, both as an autonomous learner and as an active member of peer group inquiry. Assignments will be geared towards academic, professional and personal development. Study time for each module divides into thirty hours of formally taught sessions using a variety of individual, small group and whole group teaching with learning methods and strategies such as study set activities, seminars, interactive lectures, discussion, research, using virtual learning environments (VLE), presentations and tutorials. The study time recommended for each module is sixty hours of independent study and five hours of supported study including one-to-one and small group supervisory tutorials. The philosophy behind this course allows the development of employability skills, as specific content within education and training is student-led for assessment. So students gain specific theory in the areas they want to progress and use in interviews and courses. Graduates may progress to Initial Teacher Training courses including the PCET, PGCE, Primary PGCE, SCITT or Schools Direct. Progression is also possible to the Masters in Education (International Masters Programme) at Plymouth University.
