To take into account

· What are the objectives of this course?

A key feature of Education Studies is a focus on you as a developing practitioner. You will be encouraged to develop a strong personal ideology of education and will be supported in the development of secure employability skills through our work-based placements. A number of core modules each year incorporate placements in schools or other education-related settings and carefully structured placement tasks will ensure that you gain valuable first-hand practical experience. Throughout the course, you will complete a number of modules which take a more thematic approach where you’ll explore critical issues such as Inclusion, Equality and Entitlement. During your final year, you will explore wider issues of inclusion including policy and leadership.

· Who is it intended for?

You will have the opportunity to examine legislation and contrast it with the reality of what is provided in educational settings, developing skills in critical analysis of current issues, and looking at how those issues impact on the individual and their learning environment. In addition, you’ll become equipped with the confidence and competence to make a difference to your own life and the lives of others. Special Educational Needs, Disability & Inclusion can be a fascinating, challenging and emotional subject to study; it will most definitely be rewarding. In addition to careers in Education, Education Studies graduates are well placed to work in the other education-related, health, social care, public information or communication sectors. The course provides good training for a role within the business, service industries, personnel, museums, galleries or charities.
