University of Suffolk has opted into the TEF and received a Bronze award.
The BA (Hons) Early and Primary Education Studies degree is engaged in acknowledging the potential of education to support the transformation of individual and community living, whilst building a sustainable society within the framework of a philosophy of hope.
The course stresses the role of education as a social endeavour, which needs to respond to the diverse needs of multicultural societies, and to acknowledge the role of education in issues of social participation and social justice.
The programme offers the opportunity for students to prepare effectively at undergraduate level to embark on a teaching career by progressing onto an appropriate ITT (Initial Teacher Training) programme. This degree will qualify as an appropriate entry qualification for the PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate Education) courses and will enable students to specialise in either Early Years or Primary levels of teaching.
