Course summary

**This newly developed, strongly vocational degree is designed for students seeking a fulfilling career working in schools, while not wishing to immediately gain qualified teacher status.**The only undergraduate course of its kind in London, BA Education Practice is ideal for those already working as a teaching assistant (TA), secondary or primary, and looking for career progression. It's equally ideal for sixth-form leavers seeking a hands-on, practical route into the education sector and the many careers it offers. The BA Education Practice programme offers three main career options:- The opportunity to become an accredited Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA), now formally recognised as a graduate level role, for those with TA experience.- Progression to our one-year PGCE Primary following graduation, to achieve qualified teacher status (with a 20% alumni discount on the tuition fees).- Progression to our one-year MA TESOL for students who may wish to work internationally in English speaking schools, teaching pupils with English as a second language (also with a 20% tuition fee reduction).The course content of BA Education Practice offers students a deep understanding of working life in schools, the education system and the issues faced by classroom practitioners. Placement periods are arranged for students to gain hands-on experience. All teaching and learning is informed by Roehampton's unrivalled 180 year heritage in teaching, and by the work of education philosopher Friedrich Froebel, whose followers established Froebel College in the 1920s. Students also benefit from Roehampton's vast network of partner schools across London and the south east, and from the world-class reputation for special educational needs (SEN) specialism that our School of Education enjoys.Timetabling has been designed with an unusual degree of flexibility, such that students working in schools attend university one day a week, with further online lectures and seminars on one evening from home. Students who are not working can opt for a more traditional timetable spread across the week.Please note: Prospective students wishing to embark on an education degree with a more academic focus should consider our BA Education Studies, while those looking to qualify as a primary school teacher should apply to our BA Primary Education (QTS).Schedule by year of study:- Year 1 is designed as an introduction to both academic study and the fundamentals of education, plus the professional ability to reflect on one's work in schools. Modules cover the fundamentals of how children learn, how teachers teach, and the importance of both education technology and SEN - both vital in the role of teaching assistants.- Year 2 includes a formally assessed placement, plus further focus on the core of teaching and learning and the philosophy of Froebelian education. Optional modules are geared toward particular expertise in the primary curriculum.- Year 3 includes a practice-based enquiry project and a focus on wellbeing and multiculturalism in education. The two optional modules which are to be taken focus on the step into work (via HLTA accreditation), further professional study (via the PGCE or MA TESOL) or academic study (via an MA in Inclusive Education).**Roehampton is ranked number 1 in London in the field of Education (Complete University Guide 2021)**
