This programme includes a foundation year that prepares the student for entry to level 4. This includes study skills, an introduction to social sciences, and education in society. From Level 4 the programme focuses upon aspects of teaching and learning both in the classroom and beyond. It offers the opportunity to study aspects of the curriculum, child development, special educational needs, safeguarding and pastoral care across the age ranges from early years to adulthood. It is ideal for those as yet unsure as to which sector of education in which they wish to work or for those who would like to support teaching and learning in either schools or other settings. After successful completion some students may wish to apply to post-graduate QTS Primary programmes.
