Course Summary

The course provides personal and professional development for those interested, or already engaged, in paving the way for a more sustainable world by way of understanding, educating or promoting sustainability. The unique structure of distance learning enables international students to gain a globally recognised qualification from the UK. If you're looking to study in London, then we also offer a full-time option for students. Although many of our students are educators or NGO educational, training or campaigning staff, we also draw students from many other backgrounds, including health, media, business, government, botanical and zoological work. Education for Sustainability (EfS) is a distance learning postgraduate course at Masters Level delivered by a team of experts. Employers have found that the programme has enabled students to develop and enhance work practices in the light of current theories and debates. This has led to a number of organisations sponsoring their staff to do the programme as a means of capacity building and staff development. Many EFS graduates have gone onto gain promotion, career advancement or have made use of the course to change their career direction. Sustainability skills are an important career asset in the 21st century and this qualification has been recognised by employers, such as news media, National Environment Management Agencies, government ministries, schools, environmental and development NGOs. EFS graduates have gone onto gain promotion, career advancement or have made use of the course to change their lives or career direction. Examples of graduate jobs include education adviser UNICEF, Director of Communications, Transition Town volunteer organizer, Environmental News editor, education director botanic gardens, curriculum manager, and schools inspector.

Modules

The module provides students with an opportunity to focus on values and participation in education and learning more generally and specifically within EFS. This educational focus is linked to a wide overview of the general issues and debates surrounding scales and elements of sustainability ? from local to global and integrating ecology, economy, society and culture. Students are provided with opportunities to balance the discussion of the substantive issues of sustainability and of learning for sustainability. Students are encouraged to achieve a balance of theory and practice by linking theoretical discussion to examples of practice, but also by making the links with practice in the activities in the module.
