Careers and your future in Education

Our 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.

Study education at Brunel and you’ll gain much more than a degree, you’ll learn the skills and approaches to make a difference in people lives. We focus on more than simply imparting knowledge and look at the curative and cultural concepts that make up education - so you have the foundation to make an impact once you graduate. 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.

We understand that the impact of education extends far beyond teaching. Our undergraduate degree in education and MA education programme will equip you with the tools you’ll need to make a difference in people's lives across a variety of education related environments. Our graduates go on to work in fields such as: counselling; educational psychology; social work; educational administration and business and management.

If you’re considering Brunel for further study that will lead to teaching, a Brunel PGCE with recommendation for QTS is a recognised symbol of high-quality Initial Teacher Education.  All our primary and secondary PGCE programmes have been rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted as a mark of their quality, meaning you’ll enter the graduate world with the skills and experience you’ll need to succeed. You will also benefit from our partnerships with educational institutions and local schools. Many of our students go on to work in our partner schools and many more are employed in schools where they undertook a placement.
