Course summary

Designed to give the two things that teachers need most: flexibility and consistency. The first half of the academic credit that we recognise towards our Masters in Professional Education upon enrolment will either be drawn from a recent UK PGCE with teaching practice or from our Postgraduate RPL Programme. All Masters pathways then share the same ‘taught’ MA course structure, although this is tailored towards your research interests and objectives.

Course Overview

The step-by-step module process takes teachers through designing a research study and then applying for ethical approval and conducting the study over an appropriate time-period. The final assessment is a dissertation which communicates the findings of the substantial research project in an appropriate academic form; preparing teachers to share the research more widely with other practitioner researchers, colleagues and the wider profession.

Teaching and Assessment

Most teachers prefer some face-to-face contact, but not everyone is able to attend every session. Our blended approach of combining face-to-face and online teaching allows for the flexibility teachers need whilst working, supporting them to study from anywhere within the UK, or internationally, thanks to our high-quality online materials and tutorials delivered remotely. Course timelines, assignment deadlines and teaching sessions are released one academic year in advance to enable teachers to plan their time effectively. Teaching occurs at weekends so as not to impact school commitments (although appropriate flexible working may be offered by some employers).


Our students will already be working in the education sector. The MA is designed to enable you to taylor your research interests to your professional aspirations, which may be concerned with classroom teaching, pastoral or leadership roles. Our students gain promotion in school-based contexts, pursue further research at PhD level moving into higher Education teaching and research, or find that their research opens doors into associated careers in fields such as social work and youth services.

Our department has a dedicated professionally qualified Senior Careers Consultant offering impartial advice and guidance together with workshops and events throughout the year. Previous examples of workshops and events include:

  • Applications and Interviews for Teaching Jobs
  • Preparing for Teaching Job Interviews
  • Writing a Personal Statement for Teaching Jobs
  • Careers Drop In (for applications and interview support)
