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.

 

Based upon a spiral approach to both curriculum and assessment, the course aims to produce graduates who are critically informed about contemporary issues relating to education and childhood studies; graduates who have the knowledge, skills and professional competency required to successfully innovate and drive forward policies and practices within the education and childhood studies workforce.

 

You can also choose to study this course as a three year programme (without a foundation year) BA (Hons) Education and Childhood Studies UCAS Code: X310
