Education Management

Education Management is for teaching professionals at any level and covers problem solving solutions and critical thinking in order to manage educational learning. The course will cover a wide range of modules from the social influences on education to the legal obligations of those in a position of care

Is this the course for me?

It is not just important that students are passionate about the education sector, but it is also important that students have demonstrated in-depth knowledge regarding the moral, legal and ethical obligations of those working within the education sector. Similarly, the students are also expected to conduct their own critical study and so should be self-motivated and hard working.

Careers prospects

The careers path options available to those with education management very much depend on the area in which you have chosen to specialise while studying.  Most graduates in this particular field already have teaching jobs and are looking to further their career and fill more senior teaching positions.

Similarly, those with experience within this particular field may also opt to work in local government authority within education departments taking responsibility for allocating finance and resourses.

Studying Education Management

Applicants are required to have strong qualifications they are also expected to demonstrate that they have previous educational experience through volunteer work or in a professional capacity.  If you’re studying at post-graduate level, you should have a strong degree already and those wishing to study on an undergraduate course should have 3 A-levels or equivalent.

Foreign students will be required to sit an IELTS test and score a minimum grade of 6.0. Assessments will be both written and practical and you will be expected to attend lectures alongside working in a classroom environment and the focus will be on teaching rather than brushing up your skills in academia.

Where to study?

The impact your university location will have upon your experience will be two-fold. Primarily it will impact upon the area you live, so make sure to attend University open days and investigate the local area. However, for a vocational course such as a teaching, the location can also have an impact upon your future prospects within the jobs market. You should try and find a location which will not only make you happy, but will provide you with as wide a range of experience as is possible and will have a number of job opportunities available upon graduation.

Of course fees and academic grades should also come into consideration when deciding where to study. A teaching course if fiercely competitive, so it is important that you look have the minimum grade required in order to study, as well as the relevant work experience. Similarly, it is also important that you budget how you will pay your way. If you are struggling with fees, or are still applying for funding, there are a number of bursaries and scholarships available for students.

When choosing any course you ought to ask is which modules are available to study? You will be learning for a minimum of a year (at least) and hopefully you will have a long and successful teaching career, so it is important that you choose an appropriate specialism. Do you want to work with young children? Are sixth formers more your interest? Whoever you want to teach, there are a number of courses to choose from.
