The BA (Hons) Education and Professional Practice is unique in its approach to deliver a broad range of areas under one qualification and bring into contact teaching practitioners, early years educators and professionals from different sectors of education who will work together to interrogate key concepts of the education system within their own working context.
The BA (Hons) Education and Professional Practice at New City College provides you with critical insights into key educational issues that will enable you to develop intellectual, practical and transferable skills related to current educational practices. The course provides a selective approach into the wider perspectives of education and work-based learning through modules focused on evidence-based pedagogy, educational research and reflective practice.
The programme encourages healthy debate and discussion, building in depth and advanced knowledge and understanding across a variety of sectors, taking in key aspects of learning through educational theory, practice and policy, strategic methodology, and whole-organisational practices beyond the role of teaching.
Over the duration of the course, you will have the opportunity to enhance your research skills and to make a contribution to scholarship in an area connected to your academic/ professional interests. You will demonstrate advanced knowledge and understanding of ethical considerations and the importance of integrity.
