Course content

The Masters in Teaching and Learning / Educational Leadership (MTL/MEL) is principally designed to support professional learning entirely in a school, college or partnership context. The MTL/MEL approach involves individual and collaborative practice-based enquiry, guided by a tutor and linked to institutional development priorities.

Based in the workplace, the MTL/MEL focuses on day-to-day practice. The programme is personalised, so you can choose areas to develop, research and study. Designed to support the development of teaching, learning, leadership and management skills, the MTL/MEL helps you to develop an open and questioning mind-set through an enquiry approach, enabling you to embrace change, challenges and opportunity. You will work collaboratively alongside colleagues with the support and guidance from an experienced tutor throughout the course. The MTL/MEL integrates with your current role and institutional professional development and can support promotion. The course will provide you with the opportunities to undertake academic study and prepare you for even higher study in the long term. Please note that completion of this course does not lead to qualified teacher status (QTS).
