The award is available at Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and Masters. All study is at Masters level and usually forms years one, two and three of a part-time Masters course.
All the awards are designed to help you with your day-to-day work teaching, supporting other teachers in improving their work and leading and managing in schools, colleges, community settings, workplaces, local authorities and other education settings.
This award focuses on developing practice in relation to pedagogy and leadership for staff working in a variety of education settings.
This programme is taught at University campus locations in Stoke, Stafford and Lichfield. It can also be based in a school or college in order to support staff carrying out key tasks for themselves and their organisations where numbers allow.
If you already have some Masters level credits (from your PGCE or other courses for example) you may be able to fast track part of the award.
Our guiding principle is to place learning in the workplace at the heart of the programme. This means that what you learn in the workplace is just as important as the formal study you undertake with us. We work closely with employers to ensure that the programme is relevant and responsive to the complex demands of education contexts.
We value the knowledge that you have already gained through your prior experience and you are encouraged to contribute your ideas and experiences in taught sessions.
Modules include: Mentoring and Coaching; Inter-professional Working; Educational Leadership and Learning and Assessment. For the final Masters stage, everyone does a Research Methods module and a Dissertation.
Once you have your Masters degree, you will have the opportunity to progress to our PhD and EdD awards, Doctoral level programmes aimed at helping you develop your capabilities even further.
