Course content

Upon enrolment, the first half of the academic credit recognised towards our Master's in Professional Education will either be drawn from a recent PGCE with teaching practice or from our Postgraduate Certificate in Professional Education Programme. All Master's pathways then share the same ‘taught’ MA course structure, although this is tailored towards your research interests and objectives.

The step-by-step module process takes teachers through designing a research study, applying for ethical approval and conducting the study over an appropriate time-period. The final assessment is a dissertation which communicates the findings of the substantial research project in an appropriate academic form; preparing teachers to share the research more widely with other practitioner researchers, colleagues and the wider profession.
