The principal aims of this online part-time programme are to encourage professionals working in legal, business, further and higher education sectors to continue their professional development as educationalists. Education and Training colleagues working in Legal and Business have limited opportunities to bridge the gap between their work and higher education.
The Master of Arts in Education pathway, with two exit awards (Postgraduate Certificate and Diploma), provides educational practitioners with a conduit to acquiring skills and abilities necessary to support University of Law students within the university and the students of external practitioners studying the programme.
Legal and business colleagues will view this Masters as a career development opportunity; the programme will encourage a stronger partnership model with the University.
Exit awards and full pathway will also be of interest to the internal staff working at the University of Law. Currently, we run a PGCHE programme with a robust legal focus; we intend to run this new pathway alongside a generic educational context to attract a wider audience from existing staff and in the legal and business community.
Master of Arts in Education is a career-enhancing and attractive way of supporting continuing professional development in partnership with the University, Legal and Business sectors. Our emphasis is on flexibility, collegiality, collaboration, with a focus on practice to equip legal, business, further and higher education professionals with the qualifications to meet rapidly changing landscapes.
This programme is conducted purely online with high-quality learning and teaching experience and dedicated supervision, which gives an opportunity for maximum flexibility whilst maintaining a critical and creative approach to learning.
