  • Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar
  • Subject Knowledge enhancement in foundation subjects

Masters in Pedagogy and Practice

We are developing a new Masters Degree which will is targeted at NQTs who already have 60 L7 credits. We would expect you to be averaging 60 in your assignment to cope with the work.

This new masters will be a "professional" masters rooted in developing your own practice and that of your institution using evidence based research.

This will allow you to develop a project in your institution in an area that you have a passion for and we will provide the research methodology and pedagogic frameworks to support your project giving it the academic rigour, reliability and validity. We will encourage you to share your research though publications and conferences.
