What’s covered in the course?
You don’t need a teaching qualification for this course and you don’t have to intend become a teacher. We take a flexible approach and encourage you to explore educational issues within an international context, helped by working alongside the wide range of students from both the UK and overseas who study on this course.
You’ll explore how the English education system works by studying the quality of learning and teaching on offer to pupils today.
