Education studies

The Teaching and Learning Support Foundation Degree is designed for those working or wishing to work in schools with children in Key Stages1 and 2, i.e. children in years 1 to 6. The programme has been developed so that those wishing to work in an educational setting to support the teaching and learning of children can explore a variety of contemporary topics and issues, such as behaviour management, social pedagogy and inclusive education. Students will carry out research which is relevant to their workplace. Our Teaching & Learning Support course is quality assured by Middlesex University and you will receive a Middlesex Award on successful completion. Students studying a Foundation Degree can apply to do a "top-up" year to obtain a full BA (Hons) degree in Teaching & Learning Support. This course is also available at AHED.
