Course content

This programme draws on up-to-date research and policy news to support subject and phase school teachers to follow their own needs and interests together. It offers a combination of practice and issues modules, and is delivered in a school-friendly way, including on-site at school clusters, online and at weekends.

We've worked closely with schools to develop this MA. The programme:

* Is relevant to school-based practice
* Responds to the need of student populations in situations of policy uncertainty
* Explores school change and the immediacies of adapting policies and practice to local needs
* Addresses issues of inclusion, marketisation, and competition
* Fundamentally, the MA has been developed within a notion of collective action.

When and where

Modules on this MA are delivered on a flexible basis. This may include weekends, holidays, or late afternoon sessions, delivered at Goldsmiths, on your site, or as a mixture of the two. For example, this could be as:

* One Saturday at Goldsmiths with three half term days at your school site (10am to 4pm) or an introductory session at Goldsmiths
* Two Saturdays at your school site (10am to 6pm) and six late afternoon sessions on a Wednesday at your school site (4pm to 6pm)
