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.

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?
