Are you Studying Education?

As an education graduate, students are likely to have the ability to:

  • Understand theoretical knowledge and research evidence about the processes of learning, including some of the key paradigms and their impact on educational practices
  • Understand aspects of cultural and linguistic differences and societies, politics and education policies, economics, geographical and historical features of societies and contexts, and moral, religious and philosophical underpinnings and their effects on learning.
  • Understand their own and other education systems, and the underpinning value systems.
  • Understand the complex interactions between education and its contexts, and relationships with other disciplines and professions.
  • Analyse complex situations concerning human learning and development in particular contexts, including their own learning.
  • Accommodate new ideas concerning globalisation on education systems and issues such as social justice, sustainable development, peace education, social inclusion and the knowledge economy.
  • Provide well argued conclusions relating to these main global issues.
  • Reflect on their own value systems, development and practices.
  • Question concepts and theories encountered in their studies.
  • Communicate and present oral and written arguments.
  • Use Information and Communication Technology.
  • Interpret and present relevant numerical information.
  • Work with others, as a result of the development of interpersonal skills, to demonstrate the capacity to plan, to share goals, and work as a member of a team.
  • Improve their own learning and performance, including the development of study and research skills, information retrieval, and a capacity to plan and manage learning, and to reflect on their own learning.

Here at ESCalate, we would like to help you consider your employability, so we have recently produced two publications, one aimed at Students and the other aimed at Staff; plus we also have developed an employability module.
