Education and Early Years

Education transforms lives through understanding the philosophies and practice of teaching and learning. We cater to students with a burning passion to support others in their educational journeys as well as those with a desire to advance research into education and pedagogy.

Your degree programme will cover topics such as play, education, policy, youth justice and inclusion, with accredited work-related learning throughout.  

For those of you thinking about a route into teaching UCW also delivers a number of teaching training courses for those wanting to work specifically in the Further Education Environment.
