Careers and your future in Education
Education graduates are equipped with the knowledge, skills, experiences and graduate attributes to support the education of children and young people in a variety of different educational settings.
85% of our graduates are in work or further study six months after graduation.
To support the placement learning experiences in each year of the programme, we utilise a well-established network of schools and other educational settings across west and central London as well as the surrounding boroughs and home counties.
These include recent opportunities offered in the floating classroom of Groundworks; young offenders institutions; Pupil Referral Units (PRUs)’ special schools and a variety of different types of school.
Some graduates progress into the wide variety of routes into teaching where they gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). This includes successful applications for our own Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ Postgraduate Certificate in Primary Education (PGCE) teacher education programme.
Other graduates go on to work in educational fields such as: counselling; educational psychology; social work; and educational administration and management.
An Education degree from Brunel also equips you with a range of transferable skills including critical reflection, systematic analysis, communication, collaboration, presentation and writing skills, all of which are very attractive to employers.
