Course content

MA Teaching is a three-year part-time programme of professional development for newly qualified primary and secondary teachers that want to broaden their career opportunities and enhance their prospects of early promotion.

Our programme focuses on teaching, learning and assessment, and makes direct links to the Teaching Development Agency's Core (Induction) standards and the priorities identified in the National Strategies. MA Teaching also provides a pathway to higher-level research degrees.

The programme introduces you to a range of classroom research tools and includes structured, school-based learning that allows you to draw from your experiences as a new teacher and to relate these insights to your analysis of current theories and research.

In recognition of your busy workload as a new teacher, we deliver the programme through a combination of summer and day schools that include lectures, seminars and tutorials. We also provide support through distance learning materials, an online tutor, and an online community.
