BA (Hons) Post Compulsory Education

The focus of this course is the development of the knowledge, skills and qualities required by existing teachers in Post Compulsory Education.

The programme will develop individuals as reflective practitioners who are capable of critically reviewing their own performance. This means valuing critical and professional autonomy, thereby encouraging teachers to see work with students as central to CPD as opposed to separate from it. It is an approach that sees ‘identity’ as a key concept for all learners.

The course will:

  • centre on a holistic model of critical reflective practice
  • encourage the use of advanced technologies
  • encourage the sharing of professional practice
  • encourage teachers to be enterprising with their ideas and professional teaching practice
