It’s not just what children learn, but the context in which they learn, which affect their life experiences. Many other factors can also impact on education outcomes. This course explores all these fascinating ideas, and will prepare you for a range of careers relating to education. If you’re interested in an education related career, and want to understand things like how social issues affect schooling outcomes, this is the course for you. You’ll focus on the study of learning, the curriculum, diversity and inclusion within the childhood phases of education and schooling. Using educational and sociological theory, you’ll explore how and why educational differences (in terms of experience, qualifications and future careers) can occur. Besides your education related skills, you’ll also develop transferable skills which are appealing to employers in a wide range of sectors. During the course, you’ll be encouraged to find voluntary work experience places in settings related to your planned career. We’ll provide support through our employability and volunteering teams. Our expert tutors include well-known international researchers. Interesting guest lecturers also come in to speak on current issues. We have excellent links with organisations overseas, and you may have the opportunity to study abroad in Year 2. This would be at one of our Erasmus partner institutions, perhaps in Spain or Austria. We’ll also help you to consider your career aspirations. This means you’ll be well-prepared to choose and apply for your next step.
