You will learn how to undertake and use educational research, to reflect on your own practice, using the latest educational trends and developments, to inform and enhance the way you work.
EDUCATION EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES
If you working as a teacher, lecturer, educational leader, manager, or aspiring to a career in education, the MA will give you an insight into the latest trends and leading research, and how those impact on policy and practice.
The educational landscape in Wales is evolving rapidly and the policy changes taking place will impact significantly on the knowledge and skills required of the teaching workforce. The classroom environment, whether in Wales or elsewhere in the world, is complex and constantly evolving, and teaching therefore requires mastery of a complex set of skills to guide, motivate and facilitate learning.
