Course summary

What is a quality education? Does education only happen in schools? Can an education system ever be truly inclusive? The UNESCO sustainable development goals highlight 17 areas that promote education as a way to transform people’s lives and these show that there are a wide range of issues that relate directly to teaching and learning but that do not link directly to what happens in classrooms. The goals show that learning and teaching happen in a huge range of places - in youth clubs, on sports grounds, in museums, on the internet and they happen to everyone all the time regardless of their age, background, race etc.This unique and innovative degree in Learning and Teaching offers a detailed insight into education at all ages and in all places and will examine both theory and practice to unpick ‘effective’ learning and teaching based on international best practice and research evidence. We will consider a diverse range of factors that influence learning including the importance of learner voice, the diverse needs of learners of all ages and the importance of health and wellbeing for both learners and educators.The course will be based around inquiry led approaches, considering key questions such as how should education adapt to a changing global, digital, connected and information-rich world? How can education effectively address the needs of a more diverse society? The Teaching and Learning Studies programme offers prepares you to explore these questions within a wide range of settings. The programme addresses the need for an informed and contemporary outlook to learning and teaching by providing a lifespan approach with the opportunity to gain a range of externally accredited qualifications within the fields of education and leadership e.g. the Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA). Learning and Teaching Studies prepares graduates for a variety of dynamic roles. It provides opportunities for those who wish to work in professions associated with education, but who don't wish necessarily to become teachers. It is designed for students who are looking for some choice and flexibility in their studies. Please note that this course doesn't allow you to qualify as a teacher, but it will equip you to explore postgraduate routes into teaching careers (via the PGCE).
