Keele University has launched of a new  MA pathway for teachers – Developing Educational Practice.
 
This semi-distance learning MA  pathway is for educational practitioners who want to take their practice forward. The focus is on developing practice knowledge. This includes subject knowledge and how that knowledge can be taught, as well as understanding that knowledge in the broader context of the local and national curriculum. The course aims to support teachers to deepen their understanding of their specialist subject and use their increased appreciation of education and theory on a day-to-day basis - helping them to review and analyse their skills as work roles demand.

Delivery is through a combination of self-study materials and one day taught sessions for each module enabling sharing of ideas and good practice. In certain circumstances there are opportunities for school-based delivery on core modules.

Because it makes subject knowledge central, participants for this MA who are specialists in English, Maths, Science or SEN have the possibility of applying for the new TDA National Scholarship Scheme.

Keele graduates on Postgraduate courses are also eligible for a £1,000 bursary for entry in 2011 only. 
Graduates with credits at Level 7 (Masters) from recognized providers will be able to set up to 60 credits against this pathway.
