Masters and Professional Development Programmes

Our taught Masters and Professional Development Programmes (also known as CPD) in the School of Education offer you an opportunity to participate in a distinctive range of courses across a variety of fields of study which are all linked to the research interests of members of staff. 

The entry level will depend on your academic qualifications as well as professional experience and for applicants who do not already hold a recognised degree, the appropriate level for entry will be the Undergraduate level. However, there are opportunities for progressing onto Postgraduate Masters level in most programmes. Learn more about the structure of the pathways for progression on the programmes.

We also offer a Degree Apprenticeship in Educational Leadership which builds on National Professional Qualifications and develops capacity for leadership and expert practice in schools.
