Overview

We have designed Teaching and Learning (top-up) (Hons) program at University of Cumbria so you can study aspects of teaching and learning, from pre-school to higher education, without committing to becoming a teacher and keeping your career options open. 

We give you the flexibility to carve your top-up degree based on your interests and career plan. Initially, you will learn general aspects of teaching and learning, which you can continue with, or should you want to, you can take a pathway in Early Years education or in Special Needs (SEND).

We offer a good grounding to prepare you for a range of education settings and we will also support you with the statutory skills tests if you need to take them.

Career:

On completion of this course, we will support you in applying to postgraduate QTS skills tests if you wish to progress to a primary PGCE following the course. Alternatively, you may wish to use your qualification to become a teaching assistant, or work in SEN or alternative settings such as prison, museums or heritage environments.
