Months of entry
This MA is taught in Singapore at the Institute for Adult Learning. The programme aims to provide professionals with responsibility for managing, delivering or supporting lifelong learning with opportunities to develop their own analysis and practice and equip them with the knowledge and skills relating to leadership in their practice.
The MA was adapted from the highly regarded London-based MA in Lifelong Learning to meet the needs of policy makers, researchers, managers, trainers, and others involved in the development of Continuing Education and Training (CET) in Singapore. It plays an important role in the building of research capacity and capability in CET, and forms part of the range of qualifications available to adult educators and others working in CET in Singapore.
In response to student interest, the MA will from 2015/16 include modules on leading and innovating in professional development, and analysing adult education policy and practice.
Part of the attraction of the MA is the networking among students working in education and training or human resources management, in the public and private sectors.
