Course summary

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) has been collaboratively developed by seven universities in Wales through direct engagement with a variety of key stakeholders including Welsh Government. This course 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.

Why choose this course?

This course is unique in that it has been collaboratively designed by seven universities, has sought input and advice from international and Wales-based education experts and researchers, and engaged with practitioners working and leading in Welsh classrooms to inform the design and delivery of the programme.

Yr Athrofa: Centre for Education is the heart of UWTSD’s education provision.
It is built on a long tradition of innovation stretching back to 1848, making it the oldest teacher training centre in the country.

Yr Athrofa now welcomes more than 300 student-teachers each year and engages in a wide range of education research, focussing particularly on close-to-practice research.

It houses a Centre for Professional Learning and Leadership which offers a range of programmes for educators at all stages in their career – from pre-university taster courses for school learners interested in a career in education, to PhDs and EdD programmes which attract leading figures and influencers from within the education sector in Wales.

Yr Athrofa: Centre for Education is also proud of its partnership model with schools, the Athrofa Professional Learning Partnership (APLP). This is a network of 18 lead and over 130 partner schools stretching from Pembrokeshire in the west to Monmouthshire in the east. The APLP is responsible for leading the university’s Initial Teacher Education programmes, developing research capacity in schools, and shaping the professional learning offer for educators.
