Scunthorpe University Centre Open for Enrolment with New Provision!

The University Centre at North Lindsey College is about to open its doors for September 2018 enrolments with an exciting new programme on offer!

The University Centre has an excellent reputation, established over 28 years and continues to grow.  September 2017 saw 1100 students on part-time and full-time programmes at HNC, HND and Degree level in a range of subjects in business and management, construction, computing, counselling, education, English and history, engineering, health and social care, science, social sciences and sport.

The new provision for September 2018 is the foundation degree, FdA Children, Learning and Development Special Educational Needs and Disabilities pathway. A full time student would spend two days a week in a relevant placement and one day a week at the University Centre. This programme will focus on developing practical, professional and intellectual skills to prepare for a future in family liaison, inclusion support, teaching assistance, mentoring, adult education, and careers services.

Jade Courtney, a former student who studied on the FdA Children, Learning and Development programme at the University Centre before progressing onto the BA (Hons) Children, Learning Development degree, graduated with a first class honours degree.  Jade has progressed onto the North Lincolnshire initial teacher training SCITT Programme where she will be taking a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) alongside the SCITT to further enhance her qualifications.

Jade spoke of her experience at The University Centre, North Lindsey College and said, “The courses were very varied and provided a range of opportunities to develop myself as an individual and a professional. The BA in particular was very thought provoking, challenging us to explore pedagogy and education in different ways to expand our knowledge and awareness. The tutors were incredibly supportive throughout both courses and without their encouragement, I would not have had the confidence to push myself and succeed or take the steps to becoming a Teacher.”

There is still time to apply for a higher education programme at The University Centre, North Lindsey College.
