Course content

This programme is designed to support qualified teachers or those working within education to enhance their professional profile, support engagement with wider contemporary issues impacting on schools and teachers, and enables a broader perspective on their work.

Your Advisor of Studies will help guide you in your choices. It has a number of pathways, including:

  • Health, Wellbeing & Sustainability
  • Inclusive Education
  • Philosophy with Children (the only course of its kind in the UK)
  • Supporting Teacher Learning
  • Educational Leadership
  • Technology Enhanced Teaching and Learning (Digital Education)

By completing this degree you'll gain a critical understanding of education while being able to tailor your choice of elective subjects to suit your preferred area of specialism.

Rather than leading to a teaching qualification, it enables you to develop skills to study at Masters level and develop a sophisticated understanding of the concept of policy relating to education. It will allow you to extend your interest and understanding of learning and engage in a range of other, education-related areas.
