This programme is designed for international students, with the opportunity to focus upon one key aspect of the education system. Continuing professional development for education and training practitioners is important for the ongoing improvement of the learning environment for all in educational settings.
This programme pathway, plus its sister programmes MEd Education with Curriculum Development and MEd Education with Teaching and Learning, focuses on practices in educational systems with particular reference to national policies and their impact on learning. However the intention is to create the conditions in which you are able to reflect on issues that are relevant to your own professional work. The programme pathway options enable individuals to consider the implications of their learning, reading and enquiry for policy and practice in their own professional context.
The key aim of the programme pathway options is to establish the conditions and standards for rigorous critical enquiry and discourse and so to extend the criteria for judging taken-for-granted assumptions underlying educational policy and practice. The programme will enable students to develop an increasing respect for evidence and discourse and the capacity to initiate and sustain change, both in their own practice and more generally within their professional context
Normally candidates will be expected to have an honours degree or equivalent qualification, e.g. Cert Ed. Candidates with other qualifications and relevant professional or personal experience may apply and will be judged individually and on merit. Students are expected to have practiced, intend to practice or are interested in Education.For students whose first language is not English evidence of having reached the equivalent of IELTS 6.5 TOEFL (575 paper-based, 90 internet-based), is required before entry.
