Course descriptionThe revised Education 3 course builds on the work undertaken in Education 1 and 2. Together with the teaching placement in Year 3, it offers an effective bridge between the breadth offered by courses in the earlier years and the rigorous demands for depth in the final Honours year. It aims to foster a developing sense of the teacher as a professional: alive to the critical debates within education; flexible and thoughtful in how they marry theory, policy and practice; and always sensitive to differing learner needs.

Course Curriculum
The revised Education 3 course offers students the opportunity to further develop their analysis of the processes of learning and of teaching and to do so within a developing understanding of the contexts of education; cultural, social and political. From Year One of the programme, students will have been encouraged to develop an understanding of the aims and values of education and its relationship to society. In lectures and workshops, students in Education 3 will reflect critically and creatively on the problematic nature of educational theory, policy and practice in terms of inclusion. At this stage of the Programme, there is particular emphasis on interrogation of policy and policy priorities and how these impact directly on teaching and learning. The course thus aims to foster students' professional knowledge and understanding and strengthen awareness of their own values and personal commitment.
