Course Summary

This course is broad in its theoretical scope. Drawing on cross-cultural and global perspectives, you will have the opportunity, in theory and in practice, to critically reflect on your own working practices. You'll have the opportunity to study in a stimulating research-informed environment, taught by lecturers who are experts in their field. The Education, Culture and Society degree has been specially designed for professionals working in education-related fields, for example: teachers; youth workers; those working in the public sector with families and children; and non-government organisations in both UK and abroad. The programme is equally suitable for those who wish to dedicate time to either changing the focus of their career, or who are considering a career in academia. With both full and part-time modes of study, the programme is suitable to those who wish to complete the course in one year and those who wish to combine studying with work. This course will be of interest to those currently teaching in a school or college (ranging from Early Years through to Further Education), but will be interesting to those currently working with, or intending to work with, children and young people in non-formal educational settings such as Children's Services, Youth Work and NGOs. It will appeal to a broad range of professionals seeking to develop new skills and insights in order to develop their professional practice, and is an excellent qualification for enhancing your career potential. Students can exit with PGDip and PGCert.
