Education and Professional Development — BA/BA (Hons)

Course information

This course is delivered in partnership with the University of Huddersfield and is aimed at teachers and trainers looking to develop their professional knowledge and skills.

We welcome applications from those working either within the education and training sector or in related areas such as health, careers or the uniformed services.

The course is particularly suitable for those wishing to progress from the Certificate in Education/DTLLS to a degree. It takes two years (part-time) to attain the degree and you can choose to complete either an unclassified degree or a degree with honours.

It is delivered using an innovative ‘blended learning’ approach which combines Saturday day schools at the University of Huddersfield and creative online learning activities with both individual study and collaborative study. Tutorials take place at The City of Liverpool College. You will also have unique opportunities to share and celebrate your own student research at a festival at the University. You will need access to appropriate technology and be prepared to try out new and changing technologies.

Skills and Knowledge Developed:

The degree will help students broaden their knowledge and understanding of theoretical and policy issues and research methods in education and training, with direct application to their own professional context. It provides an opportunity to develop the student's professional and personal confidence within the student’s working practice, with a view to enhancing their career.

Please note: this course will only run when it has a sufficient number of applicants.
