Course content

The MA Education will allow you to develop and enhance your own professional practice in education. It focuses on developing your practice in relation to the needs of your professional setting. All of the modules are designed to support your teaching and associated educational leadership practice in a wide range of work-place settings. This might be in a school, college, local authority, public service or community setting. It provides a programme that will inspire you and develop your passion for working in education, whilst extending and enhancing your own educational development. We welcome applications from individuals who wish to enhance their continuing professional development portfolios through engagement with single modules.

This programme may be delivered at other Staffordshire University campus locations (dependent on sufficient demand). If you already have some Masters level credits (from your NPQH, PGCE or other education courses at level 7 for example) you may be able to fast track part of the award.

Our on-campus groups comprise practitioners from a diverse range of educational settings and students are encouraged to share practice and knowledge across different educational settings. Sessions are interactive and employ a range of learning strategies. These include group-discussion and reflection, and student contributions to on-line discussion boards/academic blogs.

Students are supported in their learning and academic development through tutorial support and developmental feedback.
