Education and Social Science at ICE
ICE provides a diverse range of academic and professional courses in education and social science including non-accredited short courses, accredited programmes in the areas of coaching, educational assessment and social sciences, and Master’s level study in Advanced Subject Teaching.
Our growing range of courses in education and social science offers something for the newcomer interested in understanding aspects of contemporary Britain, including for example the causes of juvenile delinquency and crime, and professional development opportunities for those working in schools, colleges, universities and related organisations. We seek to provide courses based in the highest quality research which are accessible, engaging and relevant.
We are also pleased to introduce a new evening lecture series exploring cutting edge research in psychology and neuroscience and its impact on improving education and learning. The Psychology for educators: lecture series is for anyone with an interest in psychology and neuroscience in education, particularly teachers.
