Beneficial impact within and beyond the education sector
We are a School that is seeking to redefine the education and professional development of the children and young people’s workforce. We offer distinctive and creative programmes that are responsive to the changes taking place in society, focusing on the diverse skills required of modern professionals. For example, our BA Early Years with Enterprise programme combines an early years education with the knowledge and expertise to run a profitable business, the twin talents that successful nursery owners and workers require. Our BA Hons Innovation and Skills for Social Change looks at a range of social issues that affect people globally, and explores the hidden strengths and opportunities in communities. For practising professionals, our innovative MRes programme in Professional Practice offers the opportunity to gain academic support and accreditation for applied development work that they may already be carrying out, or be about to carry out, in their workplace.
We have been identified as one of the leading teacher training providers in England. We are one of only 25 universities to have had their initial teacher training allocations confirmed for the next three years, an acknowledgement by the Department for Education of their excellent provision. We offer a range of PGCEs which will allow you to train as either a Primary or Secondary School Teacher.
We are also researching and developing new approaches to improving pupils’ learning. For example, we recognise the value of drama and creative writing, which can both be used to enhance learning in subjects right across the curriculum. Our research in this area has resulted in our MA in Drama and Creative Writing in Education, which is of value to teachers of all subjects. The satisfaction of our students has advanced significantly over the course of a year, in part due to the fact that students feel as though they are joining an academic community, in which they are involved in the research work of their academic colleagues, positioning our students as co-creators of knowledge.
Carnegie Leaders in Learning is located within the School and has a long-established prestigious reputation for its role in developing leaders in the education sector. Our programme of continuous professional education is being developed significantly and will draw on our original research to offer development programmes that are at the leading edge of education practice.
The School is committed to having a deep, beneficial impact within and beyond the education sector. We have recently been selected by Lloyds bank to evaluate their school governor programme which contributes to the bank's CSR commitment. We are also developing a Multi Academy Trust that will support and aid the development of a number of our regional schools, bringing the support and resources offered by the university even closer to the experience of teachers in school.
