Course summary

This programme is validated by the University of Hull. The MA Education programme delivered by TEC Partnership has been designed with educators and teachers from the ground up. Our unique approach within the local area to a part time Masters programme is designed to guide you through a learning journey which prepares you with the skills that a Masters graduate needs to succeed in the next stage of their educational career. The programme is designed for blended delivery, with face-to-face delivery on weekends and additional online support during the week, allowing professionals to study while working in the education sector. The MA Education supports the development of professionals regardless of which part of the education sector that you are currently working in, as the modules draw out your professional experiences and encourage you to critically reflect on the learning you have already undertaken in the workplace, while blending this with the academic theory that a student needs to succeed at level 7 and beyond. This programme allows teachers and those working to support education to explore their profession, its history and its future by understanding the policy and the theoretical debates which continuously shape it. A combination of practice and applied theory will allow the students to explore their own practice and structures to become change agents within their own specialisms. Designed so that students can adopt a practical or a theoretical route throughout the programme allowing practical application or theoretical exploration of all parts of the educational system. The programme delivery will be a combination of study weekends and follow up support via VLE and communication online. Students will be supported using latest Digital Technology to ensure the delivery is inclusive of everyone’s needs The programme aims to: -Provide opportunity to explore education and educational environments to make improvement in provision and understanding. -Allow practitioners to explore their educational settings in detail considering impact and consequences of change -Provide local part time study at level 7 focused on improving the lives of those we teach or support -Provide graduates with the ability to think critically, building arguments using evidence to solve complex problems and explain their process and outcomes to others.
