"They who educate children well are more to be honoured than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well."

-Aristotle

If you love empowering others and you have an insatiable appetite for learning, then a university degree in education or teaching could be your best next step. The Bachelor of Education (BEd) degree focuses on educational techniques, while a BA or BSc degree paired with qualified teacher status (QTS) training will put emphasis on the subject that youd like to teach.

Writing will be important in this field, both for your degree and for your career afterwards. Simply put: if you go on to teach, you will probably be required to mark essays. Study Marked by Teachers' collection of worked examples, and not only will you improve your own writing, you'll learn what teachers and professors should look for in a good essay.

Both of these degree routes will prepare students to embark upon careers within education and teaching, but some graduates may opt to pursue careers related to their specialised subject instead, or depart to enter jobs in areas like consulting, management, and HR.

  • Discuss the behaviourist and cognitive theories of learning. Evaluate the implication of each for the classroom setting

    "In conclusion, this paper shows that there is a place for both theories in an educational setting which needs to meet the needs of the learner by having a variety of methods, as there are different learners who require different learning styles. Along with the behaviourist and cognitive theories, there is also a place for the humanist theory which considers the learners feelings. I feel that cognitive development is important as it empowers the learner and the facilitator brings about social cohesion. However, there is a place for the behaviourist theory because learners need reinforcers, they need support and guidance and importantly structure which allows the learners to progress. Words: 2,143"

  • The Plowden Report mainly focuses on primary education while The Rumbold Report focuses entirely on Early Years education. This essay proposes to critically analyse the impact of these two reports on teaching and learning with reference to the Early Years

    "Looking closely at the different aspects and principles of the framework as well as the early years practitioner itself both have undeniably been influenced by both mentioned reports. In conclusion I believe that The Plowden Report and The Rumbold Report will always have some kind of influence in education and that their key ideas help ensure that all children have the best start to education possible. I believe it is every early years practitioner's responsibility to provide the very best for all children in their earliest, most impressionable important and formative years. We should be looking to tap into what they know, love and are interested in so that we can respect and stimulate their learning journey in the best possible ways. This leads me to one of the most important quotes within The Plowden Report "At the heart of educational progress lies the child" (Plowden, 1967:9)."
