The MA Learning & Teaching in Creative Industries has been thoughtfully designed so that it perfectly suits both new and experienced educators. This course supports excellency, no matter whether you’re starting your journey as a teacher or looking to deepen your existing knowledge, skills and experience. It’s both flexible and comprehensive, giving you the tools you need to lead the way in the education sector.

By the end of your course, you can expect to be a highly creative, thoughtful and collaborative educator with the skillset to succeed in both further and higher education. You’ll develop your skills, knowledge and agency as a teacher, as well as learning to use educational theory and undertake your own primary research. We take a highly person-centred approach, offering expert tuition, one-to-one mentoring, engaging practical workshops and guided independent study.

Aside from skills development and knowledge acquisition, you will learn to critically examine and challenge beliefs and attitudes in order to find your own voice as an educator.

The MA is offered in two distinct pathways:

  • The ‘Initial Teacher Education’ pathway:

This is designed for early and pre-career teachers. It focuses on developing your own practical and reflective skills within the classroom. It also includes the introductory module, ‘Teaching, Learning and Assessment’, for which no prior teaching experience is required.

  • The ‘Continuing Professional Development’ pathway:

This is designed for qualified teachers or those with 3 years+ of teaching experience. You’ll expand upon what you already know and complete the programme with deeper theoretical and pedagogic knowledge that will enrich your teaching, exploring new practices in leadership and educational change.
