Educational Practice FD





About the course

If you are currently working as a teaching assistant (or in another educational setting with children) and wish to work towards a professional qualification, this course is designed to develop the knowledge, skills and expertise you need for working with pupils, other adults and teachers.

Designed specifically to suit your existing work commitments, it builds on the experience you have already gained in the classroom to combine academic theory and understanding of best practice.

It can provide a route to a teaching qualification – on completion you have the opportunity to join the BA Applied Education Studies course, after which you may choose to progress to Primary PGCE/Schools Direct/ SCITT programmes to gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

How will I be assessed?

Entry requirements

A Foundation Degree will be of particular interest if you have completed a Modern Apprenticeship, vocational A levels, BTEC National or equivalent.

Foundation Degrees are also particularly suitable if you want to qualify while working.

2017/18 entry

UCAS has introduced a new tariff for courses starting from September 2017. This means the points you will be asked for are different to previous years but the grades you receive have not changed.

As a guideline, a typical offer would require you to obtain a UCAS tariff score of between 32-48 points, based on your level 3 studies.

Many students studying for foundation degrees come to us through work-based routes so you can apply for a foundation degree even if you don't have traditional academic qualifications.

We welcome applicants with relevant work experience.

Contact the Admissions Team for additional guidance on whether the qualifications you currently hold or are taking would be suitable for entry.

  • In appropriate paid or voluntary work placement for minimum of one day per week at start of course

As this is a Foundation Degree (Work Based Learning) course, students need to be working with pupils within an educational setting for the equivalent of one day per week minimum. Typically the setting will be in Early Years, Primary, Secondary or Post Compulsory Education or alternatively in the Special Educational Needs sector

Mature students with appropriate experience but without the necessary academic requirements will be interviewed to assess suitability. Promoting a widening participation agenda is a key aim in recruitment to this course. We welcome applications from students with ethnically diverse backgrounds, mature students and international students. The primary criterion above minimum levels is the potential of the individual to benefit from the course.
