Course description

Foundation Degree (FdA) in Educational Practice

This programme of study aims to produce highly skilled and well-qualified Teaching Assistants, capable of supporting teaching and learning within a variety of contexts.

Building on the Professional Practice Framework for Teaching Assistants and on Oxford Brookes' considerable success in providing Higher Education for mature students, it is aimed at Teaching Assistants working in primary, secondary and tertiary education.

In the first year, students are taught to develop an understanding of how individuals learn, in particular, in the subjects of English and mathematics.

In the second year, wider education issues such as reflective practice and mentoring are taught.

Please note: tuition fees may increase in subsequent years both for new and continuing students in line with an inflationary amount determined by the government.

Training Course Content

Upon successful completion of the Foundation Degree, students will be able to progress to the BA (Hons) top-up in Education and Lifelong Learning which is a one-year programme.

However, the Foundation Degree is a recognised qualification in its own right and students have used it for career progression in learning support roles and in other educational careers. 

Some foundation degree students, on completion of a third year top up, apply for the PGCE programme to gain Qualified Teacher Status.

If you wish to progress to Initial Teacher Training you must have Mathematics, English and a Science subject at GCSE Grade C or above at the point you apply for the PGCE.
