The BA Honours Degree in Education is a top-up programme of 120 credits at level 6 for those who already hold a foundation degree (such as the existing Foundation Degrees in Education and Training, Early Years, and Supporting Teaching and Learning) or their equivalents at Level 4 & 5 with total credits of 240. It will give participants a new network of colleagues and an opportunity to enjoy the challenges of further study for a full degree award. Students on NESCOT higher education course are typically taught in class sizes of 16 or fewer.
The BA Education Studies modules are: Contemporary Issues in Education Social History of Education in England Leadership and innovation in Education Comparative Education and Training Research Project
The course includes both formative or practice assessment and formal summative assessments. The purpose of a formative assessment is to develop and test your understanding in the subject area. Formative assessments do not count towards your final module mark but your course team will give you feedback to help you improve. Formal or summative assessments normally count towards your module/unit mark and therefore towards your final award (i.e. class of degree, distinction/merit/pass). Assessment methods may include written examinations, and a range of coursework assessments such as essays, reports, portfolios, performance, presentations and often a major project or dissertation in the final year.
