The programme aims to deliver a curriculum that enables people to work with adults effectively and competently in changing socially diverse contexts. Students will receive a theoretical grounding in adult education, as well as intercultural and practical skills development through teaching placements, focused seminars and online courses.
The programme exemplifies a community of practice that has co-constructed the programme working in collaboration with associated partners who are practitioners in adult education. Co-construction will be a continuing feature of the programme as it is implemented from 2016. Very importantly the programme has attracted European funding to support some 60 funded studentships.
