The third year enables you to research a topic of your choice and explore education systems in different countries.

You will attend College for two days per week which will enable you to carry out voluntary work and/or independent study.

It is possible to spend one semester in Year Two studying in another European country from this course.

The second year enables you to better understand the range of educational contexts and to prepare for placement. The first module, Introduction to Professional Contexts, is part of the ongoing Personal Development Planning Programme to support your holistic development as a learner and also develop your awareness of job seeking and career management strategies.  Other modules include “Principles of Research’, ‘History of Educational Policy’, ‘Education beyond the Classroom’, ‘Inclusive Education’ and ‘Environmental Education’.

 

The third year Preparation for Professional Employment module explores career opportunities and you will prepare practically for gaining employment. You will also study modules such as ‘International Perspectives in Education’ and ‘Philosophy, Politics and Social Justice in Education’ that enable you to compare education systems globally, examine the reasons for educational change and explore how educational organisations can promote healthy lifestyles. ‘Visions for Education’ is a summative module which involves research, group work and presentation.  You will also select a subject for your Dissertation.
