MA Learning & Teaching

The MA Learning & Teaching in Creative Industries is perfect if you’re looking to enter into a teaching career for the first time. It’s also the ideal choice if you’re an experienced educator wanting to broaden your knowledge and skills within the field of creative arts education at Further Education and Higher Education levels.

We aim for you to become a highly creative, thoughtful and collaborative educator. You’ll develop your skills, identity and agency as a teacher, as well as gaining key literacies in educational theory and research. We take a highly person-centred approach, offering expert tuition, one-to-one mentoring, engaging practical workshops and guided independent study.

You will develop high-level knowledge and skills across a range of areas, learning to critically examine and challenge beliefs and attitudes in order to find your own voice as an educator.

This MA is offered in two distinct pathways:

The ‘Initial Teacher Education’ pathway: designed for early and pre-career teachers

The ‘Initial Teacher Education’ pathway focuses on developing your own practical and reflective skills within the classroom. It includes the introductory module, ‘Teaching, Learning and Assessment’, for which no prior teaching experience is required.

You will also undertake a practicum of teaching experience and lesson observation, which is recognised in forming the ITE requirements for professional formation (QTLS) through the Education & Training Foundation. Teaching placements are offered for those not currently working within education.

This pathway is offered both full-time over one calendar year (three semesters) and part-time over two calendar years.

The ‘Continuing Professional Development’ pathway: designed for qualified teachers or those with over three years of teaching experience

You’ll expand upon what you already know and complete the program with deeper theoretical and pedagogic knowledge that will enrich your teaching, exploring new practices in leadership and educational change.

Because our flexible MA courses provide an educational experience that works around you, this pathway is offered part-time over two calendar years so that you can continue with your day-to-day profession.

Admission requirements

Overseas students where English is not their native language may be required to meet a minimum English language requirement of an Academic IELTS 6.5. We require a minimum of 6.0 to be achieved in each band.
