Some career options

In addition to a further degree leading to fully-qualified status as a teacher of either children or adults, an Education Studies graduate could consider a range of different jobs, for example:

  • Early Childhood Education Assistant
  • Early Childhood Education - Special Needs
  • Educational Assistant
  • Educational Resources and Special Needs
  • Infant and Toddler Care
  • Teacher of English as a Second/Foreign Language
  • Social Work/Care Work
  • Educational Psychologist
  • Counsellor
  • Community Educator
  • Educational Information Officer/Researcher
  • Educational Administrator
  • Trainer in Voluntary, Public or Private Sectors

Note that where a further qualification isn't required, you may be expected to complete in-service training.

As well as these options, some graduates consider working in areas that are completely unrelated to their degree subject.
