Summary

With an emphasis on work-based learning, this course provides an ideal opportunity to gain an academic qualification and enhanced professional development for those working in, or aspiring to work in/with, schools or an education setting. You will get the best of both worlds by successfully combining learning 'on the job' and college attendance for one day per week, for a formal qualification whilst in employment. You will consider current and relevant research and theory in relation to your setting and, crucially, how these underpin and are applied to your practice. Study areas: • Communication, language and literacy • Promoting positive behaviour • Introduction to psychology in contexts • Developing awareness of special educational needs • Education in the digital era • Education in an ethnically diverse society • Developing mathematical understanding • Working with families • Work-based research

What do I need to join?

48 UCAS points from a range of Level 3 qualifications and GCSE Maths and English Language at C grade (or equivalent). Mature students (over the age of 21) without formal qualifications will be considered on an individual basis.

What are my career options?

• Progress within the sector to a supervisory/management position • Progression to Level 6 through relevant degree programmes, including BA (Hons) Education Studies and Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) through PGCE
