Course details

Our Bilingualism in Education programme is aimed at teachers and educational practitioners working with multilingual children and young people in multicultural schools. You will study the programme on a part-time distance learning basis.

Delivered in partnership with The Northern Association of Support Services for Equality and Achievement (NASSEA), the programme will help you to work more effectively in your role with children and young people learning English as an additional or second language. 

The programme aims to:

  • Increase knowledge and understanding of the language and learning needs of bilingual learners who are learning English as an additional language
  • Increase knowledge and practices of working across a diversity of cultures
  • Improve classroom practice in planning, implementing and evaluating the curriculum, taking into account the needs of bilingual learners
  • Enable students to develop more effective practices with bilingual learners with alleged special educational needs
  • Enable students to participate in, and evaluate interpersonal intervention with bilingual children with language learning and learning needs

Learning and teaching

Each student will have a personal tutor in a regional tutor group, which meets on a regular basis. Study is supported through study packs, tutorial groups, telephone and email contact which allows students to learn with each other. There is a university based programme launch day in September.

Employability

The MEd/Postgraduate Diploma/Postgraduate Certificate in Bilingualism in Education is ideal for graduates who wish to increase their knowledge and understanding of the language and learning needs of bilingual learners who are learning English as an additional language. Upon completion of this course, you will have experience in planning, implementing and evaluating the curriculum across a diversity of cultures. 

There is the opportunity to work towards a further professional qualification in the field of Education both within schools and in other settings, including progression to a PhD or EdD. The excellent careers advice provided by personal tutors has encouraged many of our graduates to successfully apply for leadership roles working with multilingual children and young people in multicultural schools. These include: teachers, education advisors, special educational needs coordinators and head teachers at international schools and managers of community and charitable organisations.
