MEd: 12 months (part-time, e-learning)
Who is the Programme For?
This programme is designed for fully qualified teachers currently practising in Nursery or P1-3 settings.
This programme aims to meet the continuing professional development needs of fully qualified educationalists who wish to advance their skills and knowledge, enhance their professional practice and extend their capacity to lead and shape change in a range of educational settings (0-8).
The distinctive feature of the programme is its strong focus on Early Years Education through transformative professionalism – an enhanced and extended professionalism which has at its core the need for practitioners to take evidence–based action to generate professional knowledge and move practice forward.
This form of professionalism, in contrast with older formulations, is characterised not by self-interest and external regulation, but rather by the motivation to contribute to the collaborative development of practice and make informed contributions to professional debate.
