Course description

This programme offers a breadth of learning experiences in order to provide you with the multi-professional development essential to pursue a career in a range of educational settings. You will study where, how and why people learn and, in your second year, undertake a placement opportunity in a non-school setting to provide you with a practical grounding for your studies. The third year enables you to research a topic of your choice and explore education systems in different countries. You will attend College for two days per week which will enable you to carry out voluntary work and/or independent study.


In the first year the aim is to help you to develop an understanding of education in its widest context. The first module, Introduction to Academic Studies, will enable you to develop the study skills required and to plan for your own development including managing your learning activities, reading and note-making skills along with the theoretical and practical aspects of studying. You will also study modules such as 'The Developing Child', 'Theories of Learning', 'Introduction to Teaching', 'Meeting Needs of Diverse Communities' and 'Education for Health and Physical Activity'. The second year enables you to better understand the range of educational contexts and to prepare for placement. The first module, Introduction to Professional Contexts, is part of the ongoing Personal Development Planning Programme to support your holistic development as a learner and also develop your awareness of job seeking and career management strategies. Other modules include "Principles of Research', 'History of Educational Policy', 'Education beyond the Classroom', 'Inclusive Education' and 'Environmental Education'. The third year Preparation for Professional Employment module explores career opportunities and you will prepare practically for gaining employment. You will also study modules such as 'International Perspectives in Education' and 'Philosophy, Politics and Social Justice in Education' that enable you to compare education systems globally, examine the reasons for educational change and explore how educational organisations can promote healthy lifestyles. 'Visions for Education' is a summative module which involves research, group work and presentation. You will also select a subject for your Dissertation.

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 nursery or early years education, a lot of these graduates go into nursery work or classroom or education assistant jobs; these jobs are not currently classed as 'graduate level' in the stats (although they may well be in the future as classifications catch up with changes in the way we work), and many graduates who enter these roles say that a degree was necessary.
