Primary Education Studies and English Language Teaching

Primary Education Studies will give you a good understanding of fundamental issues in education across a range of contexts and environments. The course has a specific focus on the primary sector and will provide an ideal platform for those interested in careers in primary education. In addition, this degree supports those interested in working in the wider fields of education, health and social-work. Regular opportunities for work-based experience in schools will enable students to be involved in current practice using the latest technologies and learning strategies. The city of Cardiff and its surrounding areas boasts a diverse range of schools that will allow you to see sector-leading practice across all areas of the primary phase. English Language Teaching combines the theoretical aspects of language analysis, lesson planning and teaching methods with practical teaching skills for learners of English as a second language, at all levels. The second year of the programme embeds the industry standard CELTA TESOL (Teaching English as a Second or Other Language) qualification, which provides you with practical skills, knowledge and experience in English language teaching. The course will cover a broad range of different practical contexts from teaching young learners overseas to learners of English for Academic Purposes (EAP) in the UK. With shifting demographics within and beyond the European Union, the opportunities for graduate employment are very good for qualified English language teachers. The academic team have practical experience of working in Asia, the Americas and Europe, as well as working extensively with learners from the Middle East and Africa. As part of a Joint Honours degree, the programme encourages students to make connections across the curriculum and become well-rounded professionals within their chosen career.
