Learning today to teach tomorrow

Education is hugely important to all of us. It affects our experiences, ambitions, qualifications and prospects. But it’s designed and delivered differently in different places – both nationally and internationally. Through this pathway you will explore how and why educational differences occur.
The Education Studies pathway will help you to develop as an independent, critical problem-solver. You’ll explore academic theory relating to education, and pedagogy – that is, how people are taught. You’ll look at the underlying values, principles and philosophies of educational processes and systems, and examine the complex interplay of factors which shape education provision.
On the Childhood pathways you’ll focus on the study of learning, the curriculum, diversity and inclusion within the childhood phases of education and schooling. Using educational and sociological theory, you’ll explore how and why educational differences (in terms of experience, qualifications and future careers) can occur.
