This course helps develop skills that are particularly useful for students who want to build a career working with young children. While this can open up opportunities for employment in primary schools, it can also include nurseries as well as other pre and after-school settings.
Many of our recent graduates have started their careers in teaching, education practice, nurseries, youth work, educational publishing and the creative industries. Graduates can also build on their knowledge with postgraduate opportunities, including an Education Practice MA, which opens up opportunities to work in a number of wider educational environments, including youth and community work, local authority employment, social and educational research, museum and gallery education and early years settings.
