PART-TIME STUDY

We offer our course, BA (Hons) Education Studies and English  PART-TIME that includes day time sessions. However if you would like to study more flexibly, for example of an evening, we offer part time Foundation Degrees in Supporting Children in Primary Education at our college partners. After completing your part time Foundation degree you can then top up to a final year of a part- time BA degree course to gain your full honours degree.

This degree sits within an exciting range of Education and Inclusion Studies courses we offer within the Institute of Education.

What happens on the course?

During this course, you will undertake University-based learning at Walsall Campus.

It will provide a comprehensive overview of the history and theory of literary production and linguistic meaning through a selection of English modules specifically chosen for their relevance to PGCE courses. In addition, students will be introduced to a range of educational concepts and fields of enquiry exploring the diversity of learners and learning in contemporary society. Together, students will be actively encouraged to investigate the cultural, sociological, psychological, political and linguistic dimensions of teaching and learning in a course that prepare them not just for professional qualifications in teaching but for a range of other professional educare opportunities.

During the 2nd year of study students are invited to a ‘transition’ event designed to aid and smooth their progression from level 5 to level 6. Participants were given advice about how to prepare for their level 6 studies and module leaders were able to provide reading and other summer work to those eager to make a start.  Examples of this included:

  • Academic staff offering support on refining your research title and questions
  • Literature review searching
  • Where can I get help over the summer?

"The most inspirational module in my opinion is Education in Challenging contexts. This being because I feel like I have a much wider understanding of the different challenging contexts that are in education, that I feel I can put into good use within my current and future career."

"The skills I have learnt have assisted me greatly in my current job as a Youth Offending Team Officer. Working often with disengaged youths who have found themselves in trouble with the law, the success of my role is measured by my ability to understand and relate to the young people I work with. My course has enabled me to write, design and facilitate the group interventions carried out with young people in the Sandwell area."
