Course description

The School of Education, part of the Faculty of Education & Health, exemplifies the very best practice in teaching and learning through interactive lectures and seminars, electronic media, peer learning, tutorials and a wide variety of resources. The school is one of the most diverse of its kind in the country. We are a large, friendly and dynamic school and ensure that each student receives individual attention. We are proud of our pastoral care, which supports our students and helps them achieve their goals. A vital ingredient that helps maximise the success of our students is our diverse partnerships with community projects, the volunteer sector, adult education centres, teaching schools and academies. These help keep our programmes relevant to professional needs and developments. Our professional programmes have recently undergone a successful Ofsted inspection, with aspects of our provision being graded as outstanding. The School of Education is located on our Avery Hill Campus, which is set in pleasant parkland in south-east London. Avery Hill has convenient transport links to our other campuses and to Kent and central London. The Students’ Union University of Greenwich organises a variety of sports and social activities on campus.

Modules

Modules include: Leading and managing in early years; child development and learning (birth to 5 years); keeping children safe from harm; mentor preparation for the children's workforce; curriculum and assessment in early years (workplace project).

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
When you look at employment stats, bear in mind that a lot of students are already working in education when they take this type of course and are studying to help their career development. This means they already have jobs when they start their course, and a lot of graduates continue to study, whilst working, when they complete their courses. If your course is focused on early years education, a lot of these graduates go into nursery work or classroom or education assistant jobs; these jobs are not classed as 'graduate level' in the stats, but many graduates who enter these roles say that a degree was necessary.
