Key themes on this course include critical and reflective thinking, equality and diversity. By thinking about how we learn consciously and subconsciously, we’ll guide you in an exploration of how formal learning, alongside acquired knowledge, shapes our lives, interests and value structures.
We also encourage you to research and analyse a range of educational practices and reflect on your own and others’ experiences of education. This will help you think critically about learning and teaching, and how education is perceived and received.
The skills and experience you develop on this course can prepare you for a range of careers working with children and young people. Some of the more obvious routes for graduates include teaching, teaching assistant, learning mentor, early years teacher and community education.
