Academic credit is gained by undertaking assignments and providing evidence of achievement.

You should hold a UK first degree (i.e., a Bachelor degree), or equivalent, and relevant work experience. You must also hold qualifications at Level 3-4 in the subject area you teach, if this is different from that of your degree. Suitable graduates (minimum of 2:2 classification) may transfer to the Postgraduate Certificate for year 2 of the course.

You are normally required to be in paid employment, as a teacher or trainer, for a minimum of 100 hours (at least 50 hours in any one year) at a recognised training or educational establishment. Voluntary teaching practice may also be acceptable.

You are required to identify a work-based mentor who can guide you in your subject specialism and who is willing to undertake a short (1-2 hours) training course.

Successful graduates may opt to continue study to honours degree level BA (Hons) Children, Learning and Development (Education or Early Childhood) at the UCNL.

Some will decide to move into teaching, or an education related role with children who have special additional needs and disability.

Other possible alternative careers for Foundation Degree students may include: Family Liaison; Special Education Needs or Mentoring.

NB: it is important to note that GCSEs or equivalent in English, mathematics and science, are a requirement if you wish to move into teaching.
