We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Education explore advanced topics in pedagogy (the theory and practice of education) as well as individual teacher training for schools, higher education and specialist roles.
Many courses are designed for students wishing to become qualified teachers, but some also provide continuing professional development (CPD) for existing practitioners.
Postgraduate Education degrees include teacher training qualifications (such as the PGCE), as well as academic programmes such as the M.Ed (Masters in Education). Shorter courses are also available in topics such as TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Foreign Languages) and TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language).
Vocational training courses will be delivered through a mixture of taught units and professional placements. Academic Masters in Education will include more scope for research and theoretical work.
Unsurprisingly, the majority of postgraduate courses in Education are designed to lead to a career in teaching. This isn't all there is to a PGCE or an M.Ed though. Education is a diverse profession, with opportunities to focus on different age groups and subject areas or on teaching children with disabilities or other special needs.
You won't necessarily be restricted to working within a school, either. Professional teacher training is gaining ground in higher education as university lecturers focus on the way they teach (as well as what they teach). Employment is also available with private tutoring companies or international language training businesses. Other organisations with education roles include museums, galleries and even local councils.
