Short Courses in Education & Training

Studying a Bachelor's or Master's degree in Education & Training is a great choice if you want to teach and inspire people of all ages and help them develop and be able to overcome life-challenges and find creative solutions to difficult situations that come up in life.

Education & Training is a multidisciplinary field that covers aspects of Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology, Political Science, Economics, Counselling - all forming the fundamentals on which your future teaching strategy will be built and implemented. You need to adapt this strategy to the needs of the students your work with. Depending on your specialisation, you might teach pre-schoolers, school children, adolescents or adults. They all learn differently, and you need to adapt your methods to your audience to be a successful teacher.

During Teaching courses, you will learn how to keep a class interested and engaged and how to mix theoretical elements with applying newly learned concepts, as well as interactive group activities. You will also be taught how to encourage and improve people's natural learning abilities, how to create lesson plans and explain complex concepts.

Additionally, you will also discover how to listen to people and support them on their self-development or self-discovery journeys. All these skills will allow you to empower individuals and teach them how to learn, which is a very important process as they go through different stages of their life.

Teaching is a very challenging career move, and since there is such a broad range of fields that require expert education and training, the range of careers you will find is quite wide. Here are some of them: teacher, education consultant, English as a foreign language teacher, learning mentor, counsellor, personal coach.
