    Special Features

    School of Sport and Education
    Education at Brunel is at home in the stimulating, demanding and constantly changing world of education. From its solid foundation of experience, it has developed into a vibrant and dynamic community that is able to respond to external forces and internal developments with expertise and enthusiasm.

    We are the product of two long and distinguished lines. The teacher training activity of Brunel University dates back to before its merger with Shoreditch College - now known as the Runnymede campus - in 1980. That College was at the time the country's leading provider of teachers of design and technology with a history dating back to 1889. The former West London Institute can lay claim to being the oldest teacher training institute in the British Commonwealth - one of its founding institutions, Borough Road College, was established in 1798 and another, Maria Grey College, in 1878.

    Assessment

    All course modules are assessed by coursework, and students’ informal practise is self-assessed and assessed by a fieldwork supervisor. Recent examples of dissertations by students taking this course include:

        * Young people and the influence of race in the development of identity;
        * Is the concept of community relevant to young people in contemporary society?
        * Intercultural experience and its contribution to youth work.
