The Top-Up BA (Hons) Birth and Beyond degree provides an academic course for those wishing to gain a degree while deepening their knowledge of birth and beyond.
You will have the opportunity to explore the historical, political, economic, sociological and cultural factors that shape the First 1,000 Days after birth.
The course then considers the theoretical and practical skills required to change and influence this cultural shaping. One of the key skills developed is an understanding how adults learn as an individual and in more formal group situations. Finally, you will be able to specialise in an area of particular interest to you within your Independent Study.
Why should I study the Top-Up BA (Hons) degree?
- To develop the skills to work with and support adults through Birth and Beyond.
- To develop your career within or outside NCT.
- So that you can apply for work outside NCT that requires degree level qualifications or non-NCT courses such as PGCE.
- To progress to further postgraduate work and research with NCT or in related fields.
