Investigate topics you’ve contemplated during your time in the education sector. Generate discussions through examples from your experiences. Challenge theories of education and apply new ideas and thinking to your practice.

We believe that practice is a form of expertise and that, alongside more conventional academic material, practice can generate new thinking and understanding.

Through this masters degree, you’ll bring examples from your practice to sessions, to spark discussions and challenge existing education theories.

Perhaps you’ve wondered about lunchtimes in the playground and what’s considered disreputable play? Maybe you’d like to explore training techniques for apprenticeship schemes? Or how we increase the retention rate of teachers?

Whichever topics you’re interested in, you’ll be able to investigate them as part of our course. 

You’ll explore the philosophy of education and general education theories, and how to apply these to yourself and your professional work environment. Issues you might look at include managing behaviour, prioritising your personal development plan, or if you’re a teacher, your school’s action plan.

Your final assessment is usually a dissertation on a topic of your choice, related to the field of education. Many of our students choose to conduct practitioner research projects, which involve planning, conducting and evaluating practical research.

Past topics have included how teachers affect play, how young children perform to their gender, and how teachers develop their voice in the classroom.
