The quality of education plays an important role in facilitating learning. As an educator, you make a difference to the community through inspiring the next generation of learners. Educators need to understand the role they play in their students' learning and know what impacts the success of their learners. Gain an insight into what affects student performance and discover ways to develop learners' reflective skills while improving your own too.

The Education course at University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) allows you to personalise your studies to suit your own professional development. By linking academic theory with educational policy and your own everyday practice, you'll be equipped to make a real contribution to developments within the field of education.

Critically analyse and explore the relationship between theoretical models in education and professional practice, as well as examining educational policies in a range of contexts. You'll also learn how to conduct ethical and robust educational enquiry, developing your research skills to prepare you for the next steps in your career.
