BA (Hons) in Education, Learning and Development

Course Information

The BA (Hons) top-up in Education Learning and Development at Coleg Y Cymoedd, Ystrad Mynach Campus is a part-time two-year course, awarded by the University of South Wales, which meets the current requirements for the evolving education and health workforce.

The course was developed in response to the changing workforce in education, care and working with families. It attracts a mixed cohort including mature students, those who have a non-traditional, vocational route, those with families, in existing employment and some from Level 3 courses at the FE institution.

Those who complete the BA (Hons) top–up in Education Learning and Development can use skills and knowledge gleaned to inform own practice or to progress into other areas of occupation such as Inclusion Services, Social Services etc. Additionally, there is opportunity to gain access to Primary PGCE, Graduate Teacher Schemes and Post Compulsory PGCE for FE – the latter is delivered at Coleg Y Cymoedd, Ystrad Mynach Campus. 

Designed to be completed in two years and combines work-based activities, focusing on your experience and work role, with academic study, therefore allows for work commitments. 

Whilst on the course at Ystrad Mynach, you will have access to the University facilities (including the library and Student Union) and the opportunity to attend guest speaker talks, visits to USW Newport Campus allowing for an overall integrated experience.
