"Our experience in delivering education courses really benefits the future career prospects of our students."
Shirley Allen, Programme Leader
For those already working within primary and secondary education, our course allows you to study while you work, and focus your learning towards your career ambitions.
Why study BA Learning and Teaching at Middlesex University?
We have been delivering education courses for over 60 years, ensuring that you benefit from the experience and expertise of our staff. This one-year course blends theory with experiential learning in the workplace, and involves one day's attendance on campus while continuing in your educational role.
Our course allows you to develop knowledge, understanding and experience of learning and teaching in different school contexts and gain qualifications that will focus your career towards qualified teacher status (QTS) or other relevant graduate career pathways. It is ideal for those already working in an education support role as a classroom or teaching assistant or as an unqualified teacher.
Upon successful graduation you can apply to an Initial Teacher Training (ITT) programme as a route towards QTS, such as our PGCE (though you are not guaranteed a place)
