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.

This degree programme is designed on a ‘spiral curriculum’ where topics are revisited and looked at into greater depth through levels 4, 5 and 6.
For example, the research and study skills module at level 4 will provide the necessary skills to reinforce the research proposal module at level 5 which in turn is designed to support the skills and knowledge required for the level 6 dissertation module. In this way, the whole degree programme is designed to consolidate learning throughout the three years.
Each module is designed to expand and build on previous learning as well as provide scope for the introduction of more advanced, brand-new material and therefore increased challenge.
The spiral curriculum we operate supports you to effectively consolidate your learning through levels 4, 5 and 6. There are no examinations in the degree, the assessments usually include student presentations and are thus designed to offer challenges that will serve you well in future employment. Our module tutors assess, grade and provide feedback by adopting a feed-forward approach. This supports learners to reflect on their progress and question ‘How can I continue to progress in my learning?’
