You will have the chance to complete two, three-week blocks of work-based experience each year. Recent examples of organisations for student placements include Spark of Genius, Kirktonholme Nurseries and local councils.
In year 3, there is the opportunity to gain experience abroad, with students having worked in Italy and Spain in previous years.
The School of Education
The School of Education at UWS is recognised as one of the most innovative providers of education degrees in the UK. From early years to adult education, students gain rich experience from our innovative courses and graduate with unrivalled career prospects.
We’re working to create new routes for tomorrow’s teachers. Chemistry and Physics undergraduates can now opt to earn a PGDE qualification alongside their science studies during the final 18 months of their courses.
Our students gain vital skills and practical experience through work placements, preparing them for successful careers in pre-school, primary, secondary and community education.
