Why choose this course?

 

This degree is ideal if you are interested in working with children and young people, predominantly between the ages of 3-13 years of age, in both formal and informal education settings. This popular course has a long history of providing a well-respected, successful and alternative pathway into mainstream primary teaching via a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE – Primary Education) or Post-compulsory qualification (PcET – Adult and Further Education), whilst keeping options open for a range of other career opportunities that involve work with children and young people.

 

Based on a combination of academic study and work experience, the programme considers a balance of education and social topics which draw upon theoretical perspectives from a wide range of disciplines, including education, sociology, psychology, philosophy, health and social welfare/justice. Educational policies, processes and perspectives, relating to the statutory requirements of early years’ curricula and Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum in both England and Wales are considered, as are factors which impact on the wellbeing and learning dispositions of children and young people.

 

You can also choose to study this course as a foundation BA (Hons) Education and Childhood Studies (four years including foundation year) UCAS Code: 7X64
