Course summary

Suitable for both primary and secondary school teachers, our PGCert Reflective Practice course is designed for those who either hold Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) already, or who are working towards the qualification.

Enhance your understanding of education and teaching through master’s-level study. This course comprises a mixture of face-to-face sessions and online tutorial support. The sessions take place over three days in the autumn half term, two days in the spring half term and a tutorial at the end of the Easter holiday.

You will complete two assignments. One will address a whole-school issue, such as behaviour or inclusion. The other will involve an action research project designed to develop an aspect of your work in the classroom.

At the Institute of Education, we address our teaching to suit your individual needs. The structure of our postgraduate courses gives you the opportunity to create your own tailor-made course, shaping our programme to suit your needs and your personal career aspirations.

Your tutors are internationally or nationally renowned experts, and their research regularly has a direct impact on school curricula and learning techniques - both in the UK and abroad. As experts in their field, their research also directly informs the focus and content of your course.

WHAT CAREER CAN YOU HAVE?

Suitable for either primary or secondary school teachers, for those with QTS or working towards it, this course is designed to enhance your understanding of education and teaching through master's-level study.
