The Masters in Education programme from Keele University is ideal for individuals looking to develop more critical and theoretical perspectives on a broad range of educational matters. The MA Education provides an excellent opportunity for you to develop both intellectually and professionally.
Successful Masters level study will enable you to further develop and reflect on your practice. Our practice-focused modules, such as ‘Reflecting on Practice’, will allow you to reflect critically on aspects of your own practice, and widen your understanding of the latest teaching developments and education research at local, regional, national and international levels. For example, we believe our MA teaching fits well with the latest government strategies and policies published under the Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy and the Early Career Framework. We would anticipate that the programme will prepare you to make positive changes in your learning communities and to become an effective mentor for both, early career and more experienced colleagues.
Undertaking our MA will enable you to demonstrate to employers a level of critical and intellectual rigour, which can place you at the forefront of developments in practice. You will have the opportunity to demonstrate the capacity for sustained and systematic engagement with current evidence-driven curriculum, pedagogy, assessment and contemporary policy matters. This can potentially put you in a stronger position for progression, promotion and leadership in education.
Our graduates have the skills to enter occupations in a variety of fields. This can include careers not only in schools but also in politics, the civil service, policy think tanks, business, national and international NGOs/ INGOs, local authority and creative industries.
With our MA Education, you will be well-equipped to develop a career as an educational practitioner, mentor and a school leader. You can also work in education administration, policy advising, social care, the health sector, advertising and marketing, the charity sector, youth services, the arts sector, museums and the local government. Some of our graduates choose to pursue further academic study, such as a PhD or a Professional Doctorate.
