Open University (BA) Honours Education Studies, Primary (Scotland) Watch
I have just registered for the OU (BA) Honours Education Studies, Primary Course. I am wondering if anyone is currently doing this course and can provide some information on it? I am currently working in a school as a School Support Assistant (classroom assistant), therefore getting a placement will not be a problem for me.
I am planning on doing the course full time as I only work 4 days 9am - 3pm so plenty of time for studying
I have various questions but would be very grateful if anyone is able to provide the pros and cons of doing this course with the OU. I have also applied to Strathclyde University to do a Pre-Access Course to Primary Education which guarantees access to the BA for 2019. Is it worth while doing the OU and then a PGDE or doing the access course first?
Looking forward to reading everyone's experiences and reviews of this course and the OU.
I would say it’s worth looking into working in a primary school if you can -it’s great experience and allows you to observe teachers/lessons and get to work with the children in the classroom setting.
Good luck everyone!
