Beyond the Classroom

Discover Education Courses & Careers

Education is a broad and varied field that extends far beyond the classroom. Our education courses, delivered from our Lancaster and London campuses, provide pathways into education careers in a diverse range of settings. These programmes focus on education as a field of study, examining the sector from a national and global perspective, exploring child development and theories of learning in addition to Special Educational Needs, safeguarding and pastoral care, from early years into adulthood.

Undertaking an education degree of this nature is the ideal step towards becoming a professional educator, where you can enter roles in museums and heritage sites, prisons and government bodies, as well as youth clubs and nurseries. Alternatively, you can apply your theoretical knowledge to a classroom setting by going on to study a PGCE. The breadth of experience and theory you boast after a course of this type allows you to keep your options open when looking at a future career path.
