University Of Cumbria Teaching
This programme is for those who are interested in education, not necessarily in a school environment. The first year will introduce you to a number of different educational areas and will encourage you to gain work experience as you study. This work-based learning is a key aspect in enabling you to make links between theoretical aspects of learning with the more practical application within an educational setting.
Throughout the course we will provide support to develop your own employability skills, helping you to focus on the direction you want to take after graduation. Through the support of experienced tutors, who will take time to get to know you and properly explore options, you will be able to choose the right path to make the most of your studies at a professional level. Each year will provide opportunities to develop your research skills, and work-based learning will be negotiated with your personal tutor to match your needs.
We have a longstanding tradition of working in education – we are one of the largest trainers of school teachers in the country and have gained a reputation for being one of the best. You can be confident that our course will give you everything you need for a fulfilling career as a professional educator.
We offer a couple of alternative routes for this course, including a foundation integrated degree and a Diploma of Higher Education.
