Education Studies - University of Central Lancashire

This course enables students to take their interest in education and learning to degree level and study educational systems and experiences from early years to lifelong learning. There is a particularly strong focus on issues relating to inclusion for diverse learners from non-traditional backgrounds such as race and ethnicity, poverty and deprivation, gender, disability and learning difficulties, sexuality, mental health, as well as those who are subject to abuse or bullying. The course is tailored to meet the interests of students who aspire to go on to teach (or develop their existing practice) with exploration into the application of learning theories, the curriculum, the role of teachers and the shared nature of learning between schools, families and professionals. You will undertake at least one placement (usually one in each year of study) in an educational setting (nursery, primary, secondary or further education/training context) to help you gain essential work experience in a teaching and learning environment and facilitate reflection upon education systems, processes and practice (including your own). For students with prior qualifications such as the Certificate in Education (post-compulsory) or relevant Foundation Degrees (in the discipline of Education or Childhood Studies/ Early Years), you can join the course in Year 2 or 3 depending on your experience and qualifications. The delivery of the course is designed with your employment needs in mind so study can usually take place with one-day-release from your workplace by negotiation with the course leader. Scheduled teaching and learning activities combined with supported independent study will enable students to gain the ability to conduct research, learn how to make presentations, develop problem-solving skills, engage more effectively in discussions, pursue individual academic interests, collaborate in teams and develop critical approaches to policy and literature in the field of Education. You can tailor your dissertation study to particular professional needs or personal interests.
