We prepare you to work with learners of all ages within the education sector and beyond. You’ll graduate with the knowledge and skills to work in educational and training advisory roles in a range of organisations including businesses, local authorities, non-government organisations, charities, museums, art galleries and libraries.
We believe that education is about change and we hope that you are coming into it to be an active participant. We also want you to be a thoughtful and informed citizen who knows about the world and the society in which you live.
You’ll gain knowledge and understanding of:
the diversity of learners and the complexities of the learning process;
debates about the curriculum and its content;
the development of schooling, teaching and education policy in the UK and internationally;
the wider economic, political and socio-cultural contexts of education
research methods used in education;
and the impact of inequalities in gender, race, class and disability.
In addition to this you’ll gain skills that will make you attractive to employers. You’ll learn to present your ideas confidently in a variety of forms, use ICT for various professional purposes and work collaboratively.
