MA Professional Development, Education and Training


Course Description

This is a part-time degree which provides continuing professional learning and development (CPLD) for providers of lifelong learning (or post-compulsory education and training), whatever their subject specialism.

The programme is particularly suited to professionals who have completed an initial teaching qualification such as the Cert Ed/ PGCE in Post-Compulsory Education and Training (PCET).

As examples, the following ‘constituencies’ have been represented on the programme:
* Full or part-time teachers/ lecturers/ tutors/ administrators in further education, adult/ community education and higher education
* Those with responsibility for CPD, skills/ vocational training, or management in training organisations, SMEs, large companies, the voluntary sector, local and national government, trade unions, NHS, armed forces, police, prison, fire and ambulance services.
* Self-employed trainers or education and training consultants
* Teachers in the secondary education sector working mainly with the upper
age groups, or in primary/secondary with special responsibility for the CPD of their colleagues.

Modules:

Part One (taught classes, Tuesday evenings, Townhill)

1. Current and Future Issues and Policy Environment of PDET
2. Learning, teaching and assessment in PDET
3. Leadership and management in PDET
4. Research methodology for PDET

Part Two (Research)

The student negotiates a suitable PDET-related research topic with the programme team and has a personal tutor for supervision. We encourage a wide and diverse range of research topics. One-to-one meetings take place at mutually convenient times.

Entry Criteria

There are a variety of entry and exit points and this is as special feature of the programme, which uses a systematic procedure for the accreditation of prior experience and learning (APL). This can provide considerable 'acceleration', and suitable entrants with appropriate qualifications and experience can usually use APL for the first two taught modules. The APL process involves producing a portfolio under tutorial guidance.

It is not necessary to have a first degree, and every effort is made to cater for non-traditional entry qualifications.

Students are expected to have an initial teaching qualification, or an equivalent administrative qualification.
