Course summary

The National MA Education (Wales) is a truly transformative and sector leading programme for educational professionals in Wales, from early career teachers to senior leaders. The educational landscape in Wales is changing rapidly. Teaching not only requires the mastery of a complex set of skills to guide, motivate, and facilitate student learning, but also the ability to enquire into professional practice in order to improve it. The National MA Education (Wales) - which has been collaboratively developed by seven universities in Wales, through direct engagement with a variety of key stakeholders including Welsh Government - will ensure that all education professionals in Wales have the same high-quality opportunity to enhance their professional knowledge, engage with research, and to improve their professional practice.

KEY COURSE FEATURES

  • The national programme is delivered across Wales by seven Welsh universities working together to provide the National Master’s at local centres across Wales
  • The programme reflects the key education priorities in Wales and looks outwards to draw upon the expertise of internationally recognised guest lecturers
  • The programme is delivered using a blended approach of online learning and three face-to-face National Saturdays each semester where teachers can get together to exchange their experiences of best practice
  • Teachers with an undergraduate QTS qualification can gain their degree in three years of part-time study
  • Teachers who have gained 60 M level credits during their PGCE QTS programme can enter the degree programme in the second year of study and complete in two years
  • The programme is available for delivery and assessment bilingually in collaboration with university partners with the relevant subject expertise in Welsh and English.
