This course prepares you for a career in education that goes beyond teaching. It could take you into leadership and management, educational welfare work or even educational journalism and publishing. As you’d expect, it’s a sound basis for a primary PGCE or further training in social work or educational psychology. It’s a fully-rounded experience, covering the themes that underpin policy and practice as well as issues around child development, psychology, sociology and much more. The second year includes a 180-hour work placement where you get to apply what you’ve learned. You choose where you want to go. We’ll help you find a place if you get stuck. Our School of Education is the UK No 1 for research with impact (Research Excellence Framework 2014). Our academics work with local authorities, government departments, professional bodies, community groups, broadcasters and publishers. Their work makes a positive difference to people’s lives. And they want the same for you.
