Why Study Educational Practice with us?

Our course provides a progressive framework for the professional learning and career development of educational practitioners. It is suitable for both experienced practitioners as well as those at the beginning of their career.

During our course you will use your experiences as an educational professional to critically reflect on your own practice and develop confidence in sharing good practice and articulating new insights.

Using our excellent research facilities, local, national and international perspectives will be brought into focus. This will help you to understand issues within the field of education, and will benefit your learners.
