Subject

Education studies

Education Studies aims to provide invaluable insights into learning, teaching and education systems. Although it does not lead to qualified teacher status, it will introduce you to a variety of educational concepts and fields of enquiry. You will actively engage in investigating the cultural, sociological, psychological, political and linguistic dimensions of teaching and learning. The diversity of learners, classrooms and schools in contemporary society will be examined, alongside the impact of globalisation and international issues and perspectives.

For Special Educational Needs, Disability and Inclusion Studies (SENDIS), you will be able to identify and understand the challenges faced when trying to adopt an inclusive approach to all aspects of life, and how they can meet and address these challenges in a positive way as members of a diverse global society. You will have opportunities to consider a variety of issues and perspectives surrounding working with disabled people that you, as future professionals, need to be able to recognise. You will study current policies, procedures and practice that you will be able to influence in order to develop inclusive strategies. Modules will be delivered using a range of interactive teaching strategies, in order to develop your digital literacies and professional skills and attributes.

-This course offers a unique blend of classes exploring the ever-changing areas of Education, Special Educational Needs, Disability and Inclusion together with modules that debate the continued significance of these issues within a multi-cultural and global context. This emphasis upon critical reflection is complemented by modules examining key theoretical questions in comparative education, social justice and personal and professional development.
-Students will be given the opportunity to put these ideas into practice through supported placements and the realities of day-to-day learning and teaching practices.
-We are constantly developing our approaches to learning and teaching with varied and challenging assessment methods. These include recursive feedback, peer mentoring and problem-solving approaches.
-Staff are active researchers and these interests contribute to ongoing curriculum development and innovation.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

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.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
