Education, childhood and inclusion - your questions answered video transcript

Hi, my name's Sharon Bell, I'm the Head of Discipline for Education, Childhood, and Inclusion. So this subject area consists of a number of exciting undergraduate programmes. Early childhood studies, you can study a practitioner or a non-practitioner route. Education studies, you can look at the Ascend or the TESOL pathway. We also have the special educational needs and disability programme.

Recently, our graduates have been successful in starting up their own business, working as teachers or teaching professionals, social work, early years practitioners, managing their own nurseries as well as working abroad using their TESOL qualifications. Why join us? You'll be part of a community of learners who are passionate about the same area of study as you are.

We use the latest theories, we're innovative in our practice and our staff are published authors and are active researchers. We draw upon our professional networks that our staff are part of, and you'll meet a lot of guest speakers.
