Are you a teacher in an international school who would like to develop your professional practice? The aim of this programme is to support your career development with a tight focus on the international school system and its challenges and opportunities.
In the final stage of the programme you will study topics such as ‘Leading and Managing in International Schools’ and ‘The International School Curriculum’. During these modules you will also carry out small-scale research projects into issues concerning management and the International School curriculum that are relevant to your current practice.
At Stage 1 of the programme you will complete two compulsory modules ‘Development of Learning: A Case Study’ and a Negotiated Individual Study in Education. At Stage 2 you will choose two modules from a list that covers areas such as advanced pedagogical practice, assessment theory and organisational effectiveness in education. Please note that there is no dissertation in this programme.
The content of the programme is informed by research by Sunderland’s Centre for Pedagogy whose specialisms include teaching styles, motivation, human relationships in learning and comparative education.
This Masters programme does not lead to state registration such as Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
If you would prefer a Masters programme with less focus on international schools, you may want to consider our distance learning Education MA which includes the completion of a dissertation in an area of particular interest to you.
