What's Involved

The BA (Hons) Education and Professional Practice is validated by the Open University and is unique in its approach to delivering this qualification as it brings into contact teaching practitioners and professionals from different sectors of education who will work together to explore key concepts of the education system within their own working context.

You will consider the effectiveness of the management and leadership team at your organisation, as well as the innovative practices of your institution.  Alongside this, you will study the importance, theory and models of transitions and conduct in-depth research for your dissertation. This qualification is a classroom-based course in which students are expected to reflect upon and actively incorporate their professional practice into their studies.

You will study a selection of modules:

Level 6

  • Professionalism, Expertise & Accountability in Educational Contexts 20 credits
  • Effective Management, Leadership and Administration 20 credits
  • Developing Innovative Practice within a Learning and Organisational Context 20 credits
  • Managing Transitions in Education 20 credits
  • Dissertation 40 credits

For full-time students, the course is studied over a period of one year for 30 weeks. Attendance is 1 day per week plus attendance in the workplace. The course will take place at our Ardleigh Green campus.
