PgCert/PgDip/MA Urban Education


Course Description

This innovative course provides support to facilitate successful, sustainable practices in raising the aspirations and attainments of all children and young people living in urban areas.

It takes an optimistic view of improving practice, drawing on the growing evidence of recent successes in urban schools. Underpinning the course is the overall aim to improve the educational opportunities offered to schools and adults in urban areas by drawing on resources, including culture, the arts, sport, business – and, of course, people.

This course is for all professionals working in education in an urban context who believe that education - and they personally - can make a difference in raising the achievements and aspirations of individuals and communities.

The course promotes multi-professional and inter-agency working and is designed to support and benefit from the experience, expertise and perspectives of a range of professionals. It is particularly appropriate for teachers and college lecturers, including middle and senior managers, but is also of value to recently qualified teachers.

It challenges past stereotypes of urban 'problems' and places education at the heart of the urban regeneration agenda. In so doing, it draws on the vast resources and strengths of urban areas - cultural, the arts, sport, businesses - and, of course, its people.
