A truly rewarding career awaits you

Undergraduate programmes

Degrees in Education Studies and Early Childhood Studies give you a platform to move into specific careers within a social and educational setting. Most Education Studies and Early Childhood Studies job opportunities are with local authorities, health, voluntary and charitable organisations; education establishments and the youth and community sector. Many of our courses will also provide you with the knowledge and skills to develop education policy and influence education practice.

LJMU graduates from these programmes have successfully secured career opportunities in early years, primary or secondary teacher training, social work training, nursery management, or as resident care officers, senior support workers or learning support officers.

Our Learning Development Support programme provides routes into support roles for a range of educational age groups. While primary teaching qualifications provide you with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) so you are fully prepared for the classroom as a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT).

We offer routes into teaching through our University-led and school-led (School Direct) PGDE (Postgraduate Diploma in Education) and PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) courses with Qualified Teacher Status.
