Programme Content

Leading Educational Practice in Professional Settings is the pathway for practitioners in educational fields who have responsibility for supporting the work of colleagues (for example, as subject coordinator in a primary school; as head of department in a secondary school; or as training manager in other professions or in business). 

It offers students the opportunity to explore in depth aspects of practice in their areas of expertise, the management of change in practice, or managing the learning and development of colleagues.

Creative and Cultural Education is the pathway for those engaged in education related to cultural issues (such as religious education, personal and social education or community development) or creative aspects (for example, teachers engaged in music, art or drama education; museum educators; or other educators working in non-school settings). 

It enables students to focus on an aspect of practice or learning in the creative mode, with other practitioners or with students of any age.
