BA in Education and Training

Why Education and Training Program is important?

The Bachelor of Arts (Honors) Education and Training Top Up Program gives students who already have sub-degree credentials the chance to go straight into the second (level 5) or final (level 6) year of the Bachelor of Arts (Honors) Education Studies degree program.

It provides a varied and flexible approach, which enables students to acquire an undergraduate honours degree, which will help them develop the professional knowledge, skills, and competences that are relevant to the employment contexts in which they are employed.

It is designed for students who do not already possess the necessary credits to advance straight into the Bachelor of Arts in Education Education and Training program.
Those who already possess current credits from qualifications such as HNCs or HNDs, as well as other level 4/5 vocational or technical credentials, or foundation degrees, are qualified to participate in this program.

It would also be appealing to practitioners in the field of further education who have teaching credentials up to level 5, as well as those who have comparable qualifications earned outside.
