Faculty of Children and Learning

Dean of Faculty
Professor Richard Andrews

The Faculty of Children and Learning is the largest faculty of the Institute housing a diverse and successful group of nationally and internationally recognised academics with interests in educational and social research.  A major part of our work is concerned with children, their educational and social contexts, and learning.

Our research and consultancy profile is exceptionally strong, involving scholars with interests in children and young people's health and wellbeing; children, families and early learning; learning with digital technologies; formal and informal education; learning through and across curriculum subjects; research methods development and tools for synthesis.

We offer an exceptional range and quality of teaching programmes.  This includes Primary and Secondary PGCEs offered in partnership with some of the most interesting schools in the Greater London area, and a highly regarded employment based teacher training programme.  The faculty also houses the IOE's provision under Teach First.  The Faculty offers a wide range of Masters-level programmes and undergraduate courses, alongside postgraduate research at the cutting edge of educational and social thinking.

The faculty comprises four academic departments.  Our administration and support functions are structured, managed and delivered at faculty level.
