Course content

Whether you work in a school, local authority, hospital or any other field where teaching is part of your role, this course will significantly develop your knowledge of current research, policy and practice in education.

You will examine the influences that have shaped modern education from the philosophy behind teaching methods, to the government policies that direct educational practice across the spectrum, both inside and outside the school environment. We will give you a strong grounding in these areas, allowing you to gain a greater understanding of how people learn, how to teach them and how to effectively assess them.
