Education and Teaching


A teacher sits with two pupils as they complete a written exercise in a primary school classroom.Exploring the modes and methods of education across all age phases, our Education and Teaching degrees place you at the heart of classroom learning.

Our degrees in Education trace the evolution of teaching and learning and place you at the forefront of current education policy and practice. A number of Professional Education degrees are also available which provide an insight into the factors that impact upon learning, immerse you in child development and psychology, and explore the fundamental principles of working and teaching in early years settings.

If you want to train to teach, we offer a range of degrees which enable you to gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in early years, primary or secondary education. Whichever age range or subject specialism you choose, your programme will combine expert tuition with significant time in schools and other settings, enabling you to gain extensive practical experience and become increasingly confident in the classroom.
