Information accurate as of July 2016

The Masters is an optional commitment, after you have achieved your Postgraduate Diploma (PGDE) with Qualified Teaching Status (QTS). The Masters programmes have been designed to utilise and take advantage of work that participants are already committed to. This includes the achievement of your Postgraduate Diploma, which gives you 120 credits to transfer to the 180 credit Masters.

The basic structure of the Masters is the same for all delivering universities. However, the content and focus differs slightly to reflect each university’s specific areas of expertise.

For participants in Wales

Participants in Wales are also eligible to apply for the Masters in Educational Practice supported by the Welsh government. This is a practice-based Masters programme, available free of charge aimed at supporting teachers to have an even greater impact on learning in the classroom.
