The BA Education Studies modules are:
The course includes both formative or practice assessment and formal summative assessments. The purpose of a formative assessment is to develop and test your understanding in the subject area. Formative assessments do not count towards your final module mark but your course team will give you feedback to help you improve. Formal or summative assessments normally count towards your module/unit mark and therefore towards your final award (i.e. class of degree, distinction/merit/pass). Assessment methods may include written examinations, and a range of coursework assessments such as essays, reports, portfolios, performance, presentations and often a major project or dissertation in the final year.
Teacher Trainees without a portable DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check are required to undergo a DBS. A charge of £52.00 is levied at enrolment. Full time students are able to add the costs of the DBS to their student maintenance loan.
All candidates will be interviewed and will be required to undertake assessments. Applicants are normally required to hold a level 2 qualification in Communication or a GCSE in English Language. Candidates who already hold 240 credits from a foundation degree in education or related subject area, Cert Ed holders and DTLLS holders will be required to do 120 additional credits in order to access the BA top-up.
This course will enable students to gain a deeper understanding and insight into their work in highly complex settings. Graduates will become more effective practitioners and play a full part in professional teams within an educational setting. Successful students can progress to Masters level programmes at Higher Institutions of Learning.
