Motivation to Learn and Learning Behaviours

Course Code: SCED2002      Level: 5      Start Date: September 2022     


New 30-credit short course exploring strategies for promoting positive learning behaviours.

You will:

  • explore how the motivation of learners can be supported and developed through the practical application of psychological theory
  • consider the importance of agency and how concepts of self and society can impact both negatively and positively upon a child or young person's sense of agency
  • develop your knowledge of a range of factors that might account for behaviour that is inappropriate for the learning context

This course has been designed with employers to ensure that it provides the knowledge and skills needed in the education, early years and children's services sectors.

How will I learn? 

You will be taught over 12 weeks beginning with a full day in-person launch conference where you can meet the other students on your course on 17th September 2022.

This will be followed by weekly evening live online teaching sessions in the virtual classroom and flexible online learning activities to fit around your work and commitments.

What entry qualifications do I need? 

Your application will be considered on evidence of relevant experience and prior learning. We welcome applications from experienced and mature learners who do not have formal GCSE/A Level qualifications.

Is student finance available for short courses?
