Degrees in Education, Childhood and Inclusion
We deliver courses that focus working with children and young people as an academic discipline.
In these programmes, we consider the role of those who work in a variety of settings as well as looking at the wider context, taking into account topics including policy, education, health and social care, safeguarding and child and family development.
Professional placement is at the heart of our courses. Our graduates work in a wide range of settings, including early years and school teaching, social work, higher education and youth work. Many go on to higher degrees or to gain qualified teacher status. Others choose to work in research, building on the skills and insights gained here.
Our practical and academic expertise in inclusion informs all our work, while our research helps further our academic understanding of the field and impacts on policy.
Our early years and childhood courses prepare you for working in the wider children’s workforce and include substantial placement experiences. You will be taught by staff who have a wealth of professional and academic experience, and you can expect to find work in nurseries, children's centres and specialist support services in both the private and public sector.
Our experienced education studies team has worked extensively in educational settings, including primary and secondary schools, further and adult education. Using their expert teaching and research, they will develop your skills as academics and educational practitioners.
