Children’s Society Records and Archive Centre Founded in 1881 as the Church of England Waifs and Strays Society to contribute to the late nineteenth century child saving movement. It operated a large number of residential homes for children on a voluntary basis, and also under the auspices of the Industrial School Acts and the Poor Law. It holds the records of some, though not all of these schools, the Society’s central records and case papers relating to thousands of individual children.
Combining education with other subjects provides opportunities for those who wish to work in professions associated with education, but who don't wish necessarily to become teachers. Please note that this course doesn't allow you to qualify as a teacher, though joint honours Education graduates will be able to explore postgraduate routes into teaching careers (via the PGDE).
This module explores some of key developments in the scholarship of history as an academic discipline by surveying a variety of approaches used in constructing and interpreting the past. It will focus on what the historian can claim to know, the post-modernist challenge, and seek to engage students in methodological debates.
Lord Curzon, the Viceroy 1899-1905, made mass education a high priority after finding that no more than 20% of India's children attended school. His reforms centered on literacy training and on restructuring of the university systems. They stressed ungraded curricula, modern textbooks, and new examination systems. Curzon's plans for technical education laid the foundations which were acted upon by later governments.
The History of Education MA critically analyses the experience of education and learning from the 18th century to the present day. You will engage with oral, written and visual sources in an exciting intellectual atmosphere. The knowledge, skills and understanding you gain will provide a solid foundation for career development.
The module will be taught in an intensive field study mode, based on a series of visits to regional Cathedrals and Minsters where there will be an opportunity to study the religious culture of past societies at different sites. There will be a briefing session beforehand to introduce the aims of the module to the participants and to deal with practical issues. During the visit there will be lectures, workshops and guided visits to places of importance. Students will plan and carry out practical research related to their chosen topics and will give presentations and prepare final assessment tasks.
After 1868 reformers set Japan on a rapid course of modernization, with a public education system like that of Western Europe. Missions like the Iwakura mission were sent abroad to study the education systems of leading Western countries. They returned with the ideas of decentralization, local school boards, and teacher autonomy. Elementary school enrollments climbed from about 40 or 50 percent of the school-age population in the 1870s to more than 90 percent by 1900, despite strong public protest, especially against school fees.
Raikes used his newspaper to publicize the schools and bore most of the cost in the early years. The movement began in July 1780 in the home of a Mrs. Meredith. Only boys attended, and she heard the lessons of the older boys who coached the younger. Later, girls also attended. Within two years, several schools opened in and around Gloucester. Raikes published an account on November 3, 1783 of Sunday School in his paper, and later word of the work spread through the Gentleman's Magazine, and in 1784, a letter to the Arminian Magazine.
We assess students not only the basis of the knowledge they gained, but also the skills that they have acquired. You’ll be assessed in a variety of ways, and these may be different with each module that you take. You will be assessed through coursework which may take the form of essays, group and individual presentations and formal exams. Students also prepare portfolios of experiences and activities which enhances their employability on graduation. Our assessment strategy does not just deliver grades. It seeks to widen horizons and to promote self-development so that our graduates are valued for their leadership and problem solving capabilities.

Having seen the videos about history of deaf education, I felt I wasn't the only one experienced some difficulties in school through my education years in the 70s. I am not blaming my parents for putting me through to mainstream schools with a hearing impiared unit because I think they were mis-informed or being pressurised by a local authority back then. Where I am now, my English is quite reasonable (thanks to my parents who taught me written English every night after school - it was exhausting!) however, the downside with mainstream schools was lack of awareness of deaf needs and communication. There were times we feel isolated away from hearing groups because we didn't have communication support and only rely on amplified hearing aids. Hearing people seemed to think if we were wearing hearing aid we should hear - how naive! Since I left school with small signing skills, I became more involved with deaf community because I feel fit in deaf world and became disconnected away from my hearing friends whom I don't see very often now. I use a lot of signing now which I enjoy. Having seen the videos, it seemed that deaf children are treated like 'guinea pigs' because no-one seems to know what is best for them and always goes back to drawing board 'A' to find the best way for them. I feel hearing people should step away and let deaf people involved in research because all appeared organised by hearing people with no experience of being deaf or involved in deaf culture, etc. They need to be realistic and everyone is different. Rants over! Posted on 11th Mar 2016 160311

This class will explore the plantations that took place in Ulster during the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. Students will examine the emergence of the idea for plantation in Ireland, why Ulster was regarded as suitable for plantation, and the various endeavours by English and Scots to settle in the north of Ireland, whether by private enterprise or by the state. This will culminate in the official Plantation of Ulster, a 'British' project initiated by James VI and I in the early years of his reign as king of England, Ireland and Scotland. Students will also look at a couple of cases studies of individuals who were involved in plantation, enabling a detailed study of the political, social, economic and confessional reasons why they chose to migrate to and settle in Ireland at this time.

Rants over! Posted on 11th Mar 2016 160311 As a profoundly deaf English teacher, this strikes a chord with me. Communication was absolutely vital in my childhood. My school in Scotland incorporated the total communication method, then I was placed in a mainstream school. It was certainly effective as I had the benefit of sign language and integration into the mainstream community which prepared me more for the real world. It will be interesting to see how education for the deaf develops in the future. I can say for certain that I'll be throwing in my contribution to any debate on this! Posted on 11th Mar 2016 160311 Wish everything deaf verd hello Posted on 11th Mar 2016 160311 Heartbreakingly informative! Shocking, that deaf children/deaf community, are still fighting for the right, to an effective education, in this 21st Century!! Posted on 29th Apr 2015 150429 I wish to develop bsl skills to become part of the community & support general wellbeing of deaf and hard hearing people. Posted on 29th Apr 2015 150429 very strong programme. Posted on 29th Apr 2015 150429 As a university student, looking into the history of deaf education in the UK, this video was most beneficial. As well as researching for my degree, this also provides much background knowledge into deafness which interests me on a personal level, as my brother is severely deaf and was educated at RSDCM. Very interesting! Posted on 22nd Jan 2014 140122 I am Deaf and from Deaf School in the 60's - then went onto a Hearing School my education there was a nightmare. Very badly educated. They didn't have any idea how to teach a Deaf child and to be told to sit at the back of the class. All teachers should be able to Sign and talk in all lessons which gives equal access to their learning. Posted on 24th Jul 2013 130724 I am a hearing person really interested in the Deaf culture and am learning Auslan Sign Language. Because of my interest I have self-published a book The Clamour of Silence. A romance between a profoundly Deaf woman and a hearing man. It has been well received I am a public speaker and present my boojk to various groups, selling my book. Part of the proceeds are given to RIDBC (Royal Institure of Deaf and Blind Children.) I do this to show people a little of the Deaf culture in Australia Posted on 24th Jul 2013 130724 A most frank look at the difficulties of education of Deaf children. Posted on 24th Jul 2013 130724 As a hearing person currently learning BSL I watched this program and am horrified at the way deaf people have had decisions made by hearing people!! I feel sign should be part of mainstream education for everyone we learn languages why not sign it should not be we should have a barrier when speaking to other British people just because they can't hear and we are ignorant of their method of communication. I hope in future improvements will be made based on information provided from deaf people as to what would benefit them most. Not people who can't comprehend what they are going through. Posted on 13th Feb 2013 130213 I am Deaf and from Deaf School since 1960. I currently working on my project to produce a book entitled 'This is my Deaf life' about 150 pages. The book will have three volumes and will have deaf cartoons with written comments to high my points. I would like to say that Deaf Education in my time at school had been a big failure due to the predominance of oralism. We were educated-ly damaged to say the least! I hope to complete and get it published later this year. Do you know of any publisher? Thanks, Ian Funnell Posted on 13th Feb 2013 130213 Hello, I am writing to you that Deaf Congress in the Philippines was launched to grow up with Deaf Filipino community and different presenters of our local regions so that those Deaf or HOH or Deafened can witness their stands upon issues or what topics they can speak with oral sppech or use of sign languaging since the start of 2007. We will prepare the projecting agenda for Deaf Educations in 2015? We are hoping that we can look forward to hearing from your next replyas soon as you can? Thank you sharing our idea about what matters. Posted on 26th Dec 2012 121226 Hello from Canada, I understand the issues here as I was mainstreamed growing up. I work now as a CSW in a High School in Canada. The program has made me want to learn BSL and come over to work! There is a great need! Posted on 26th Dec 2012 121226 I am profoundly deaf. I studied Functional Skills at level 2 maths in a mainstream college. I failed the exams twice. Profoundly deaf people are kinesthetic and visual learners. Posted on 26th Dec 2012 121226 Re; the conclusion; "It's time for a new royal commission to look at the future of deaf education.." - is anyone currently working to make this happen? Posted on 13th Jul 2012 120713
The House of Wisdom in Baghdad was a library, translation and educational centre from the 9th to 13th centuries. Works on astrology, mathematics, agriculture, medicine, and philosophy were translated. Drawing on Persian, Indian and Greek texts—including those of Pythagoras, Plato, Aristotle, Hippocrates, Euclid, Plotinus, Galen, Sushruta, Charaka, Aryabhata and Brahmagupta—the scholars accumulated a great collection of knowledge in the world, and built on it through their own discoveries. The House was an unrivalled centre for the study of humanities and for sciences, including mathematics, astronomy, medicine, chemistry, zoology and geography. Baghdad was known as the world's richest city and centre for intellectual development of the time, and had a population of over a million, the largest in its time.
Vedic education included: proper pronunciation and recitation of the Veda, the rules of sacrifice, grammar and derivation, composition, versification and meter, understanding of secrets of nature, reasoning including logic, the sciences, and the skills necessary for an occupation. Some medical knowledge existed and was taught. There is mention in the Veda of herbal medicines for various conditions or diseases, including fever, cough, baldness, snake bite and others. http://www.tipz9ja.ml The Gurukul system of education supported traditional Hindu residential schools of learning; typically the teacher's house or a monastery. Education was free, but students from well-to-do families paid "Gurudakshina," a voluntary contribution after the completion of their studies. At the Gurukuls, the teacher imparted knowledge of Religion, Scriptures, Philosophy, Literature, Warfare, Statecraft, Medicine, Astrology and History. The corpus of Sanskrit literature encompasses a rich tradition of poetry and drama as well as technical scientific, philosophical and generally Hindu religious texts, though many central texts of Buddhism and Jainism have also been composed in Sanskrit.

Joint Honours in Education Studies and History can set you on a range of career paths including work within the heritage sector, museum work, law and business, teaching and research, social work or progression to postgraduate study.
The second part of a documentary telling the story of 400 years of Deaf education in the UK. Following the 1880 Milan conference, a policy of oralism was adopted, later encouraged by new technology such as audiograms. But a 1970s report showing that Deaf children were leaving school at 16 with a reading age of less than 10, led to more Deaf children being given a mainstream education. The documentary explores how communication in mainstream classes works and whether parents are making an informed choice about how they educate their child. Presented by Louise Harte.
