Education and Deaf Studies (Foundation Entry) - University of Central Lancashire

Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. If you are looking to work in the field of educational support and inclusion, then this is an ideal subject combination. Our Deaf Studies and Education degree helps you to gain an understanding of educational theories, policies and practice, and apply these in the real world to issues surrounding the educational inclusion of deaf learners. These skills will then allow you, if you have an interest in working in an educational setting, to gain hands on experience of the day to day tasks associated with the role of a teacher, and can be a valuable insight into a potential career option. You will study British Sign Language and issues relating to Deaf people, their history, education, culture, community and language, learn aspects of current education policy and provision in England and explore the concept of inclusion in education. There is also the opportunity to gain experience in educational settings of your choice and to obtain credits towards your degree for this experience. Students have gone onto careers such as: Educational support workers; Communication support in educational settings; Teaching assistants; Primary teaching; Early Years teaching and support; Social work; Working with children and families; and Youth work.
