Education with TESOL (Trinity Certified) - MA

Education has been taught at Keele for over 50 years, studied from an international and multi-dimensional perspective, focused on its broader role and impact on individuals, communities and the world at large. Building on the success of our established MA in Education, the TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) pathway develops practical skills and techniques – such as classroom management and lesson planning – to support learners of English as an additional, second or foreign language. In addition to a Master's in Education, you will achieve the Trinity College (London) Certificate in TESOL, an internationally-recognised teacher training qualification.
