Mental Health and Education (MSc)

Course Description

The School of Education provides an online portfolio of Career-long Professional Learning (CPL) programmes for the education workforce, to meet both current and emerging needs associated with the profession and to reflect the increasing importance attached nationally to professional learning, update and practice.

Delivered online, this programme is the only professional learning award of its kind in the UK. It focuses on the nature of mental health in learning, teaching and training/mentoring environments. The programme will also explore how this might impact on learners, leaders of learning, mentors and other disciplinary groups such as psychologists, health professionals, managers and social workers.

About the programme

The programme will equip you to work in an environment where integration of service delivery and multi-professional practice is the expected norm. Additionally, it offers a flexible study opportunity for associated practitioners with an applied interest in both the areas of mental health and education. For example, practitioners working with children in challenging environments in roles such as youth workers, police officers, correctional officers, child protection officers and staff from the voluntary and third sectors.

Your learning

The Certificate phase comprises three core modules: Mental Health in Education; Interpersonal Relationships and Communication; and Leading and Motivating Learning. The Diploma phase comprises three core modules: Stress Management in Education; Motivational Enhancement Skills; and Research Methods (Contextualised). The MSc phase comprises a Masters dissertation.
