Course summary

This course will discover the lasting impact that Education has on people's lives. Either one of these broad degrees will prepare you for careers in education settings. You’ll combine theory and work experience to develop the skills needed for teaching and beyond. Combining theory with practice, both courses are ideal if you want to work with people in any professional context that involves learning. As a graduate from our BA (Hons) Education Studies, you could progress onto roles in learning support, educational administration and management, and community learning. Previous graduates have also progressed onto teacher training routes. Choosing the Education with Special Education Needs and Disability degree will immerse you into the fascinating, complex world of SEND and equip you for this challenging and rewarding area. Our courses have been designed to provide a range of learning experiences. These include lectures, individual tutorials, group tutorials, seminars, workshops, problem-based learning, practical work placements, sector visits, fieldtrips and independent study. In Year 1, your learning will commence with a focus on Personal, Professional and Academic Development and progress to cover topics such as an Introduction to Young Children’s Development, Policy and Practice: Past and Present, and Safeguarding and child protection. In Year 2, topics such as Professionalism and Educational Strategies, Understanding Equal Opportunities and Inclusion, and Contemporary issues in Education are covered. In Year 3, you’ll focus on modules including: Supporting Educational Practice, and Comparative Education, as well as completing an Independent Research Project.

During the course you will benefit from a number of extended work placements. Initially, these will let you explore how you see yourself and your role within a professional working environment. Later placements will focus on how you work individually and in teams, and how you contribute to the aims, ethos and culture of the workplace. You will be provided with opportunities to prepare you for employment. Our graduates work in a range of careers in educational settings, children’s centres, care and family support, educational administration and management, play work and learning support. Many enter teaching through PGCE, Schools Direct, Schools Direct salaried and School-centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) routes.
