Newman’s masters’-level provision is specifically for educational professionals, teachers, lecturers and others working in educational settings in support roles in recognition of the importance of sustained professional development.

About the course

Newman offers you the opportunity to enhance your professional knowledge, understanding and skills by developing and implementing systematic professional enquiry and research.

You can also expect to further develop your knowledge, understanding, and skills in curriculum development. The course promotes critical engagement in a range of contemporary issues pertinent to specific interests and needs and you are encouraged to explore your own personal and professional interests and expertise. If you wish to progress your studies even further then the course provides an appropriate academic platform for progression to PhD/EdD study.

Attendance

Modules are based at Newman, usually delivered one evening per week. However, if there are significant numbers of staff in one institution wishing to undertake the programme we can deliver the programme on your site at times convenient to you.</p>

Part-time students have a maximum period of study of 5 years to complete an MA. However, an MA is typically completed over 2-3 years and we recommend that part-time students take 60 credits per year (i.e. 2×30 credit modules across the year). Full-time students have a maximum period of study of 3 years to complete an MA, but typically complete an MA in 18 months.

Assessment

You will experience a range of work-based assessment formats including portfolios, presentations, written reports and essays, work-based studies and practical tasks. The course will recognise your needs as a learner and develop independent study skills that are transferable to a range of learning situations and assessment tasks.

Special features

You will have access to all facilities at Newman including the library, which stocks a wide range of books, journals and e-books. Previous level 7 masters credits may be transferred (free-of-charge) through the accreditation of prior certificated learning (APCL). Also, you can gain credits for other sustained CPD programmes you have undertaken, such as National College Programmes, by writing up your reflections against the assessment criteria for a comparable module via the accreditation of prior experiential learning (APEL). You may also gain national professional recognition through the Teaching and Learning Academy for your masters level work.

Many modules will continue to be rooted in enhancing professional practice within work-based learning. All assessment will be carried out through the medium of English and there will be no exceptions. However, students will also be able to undertake non-empirical research – see * in the PDF table above for modules which will facilitate non-empirical research.
