Course summary

How do labels affect children’s identity? How does our individuality affect the way we learn a subject? Do our emotions alter our ability to learn? Educational Psychology draws on a wide range of psychological theory and real world experiences to build an understanding of how children develop and learn. It takes account of the social and cultural contexts of children’s lives and schooling, as well as their individual growth and development.Here at Manchester Met, we are working with key partners in services, schools and communities across Greater Manchester and beyond to create a vibrant place for study. This course will bring psychological theory and research to life by looking at its influence in key areas for education. Our course themes reflect priorities shared with our partners and with local and national policy-makers: school readiness; inclusive cultures of practice; and health and wellbeing. You'll cover all the core areas of psychology set out by the British Psychological Society, applied to the context of education. During the three-year course, you’ll experience placement opportunities to develop an understanding of the different psychological approaches needed to address social problems and you'll use data from real world projects to develop skills in research and evaluation with academic staff .Learning psychology through its real world applications will provide you the best opportunity to develop a deep understanding of psychological theory and practices. For example, you'll learn to understand the experiences of children with special educational needs or disabilities. We will also explore how wellbeing can impact learning, particularly how social, emotional, and mental health aspects changes how able a student is to learn.
