Course Description

Courses will commence September 2019

With increased demands for effective management of learning environments and an increased focus on online and eLearning, the field of teaching, training, education and learning constantly presents practitioner challenges. Professional effectiveness in the field demands a knowledge, skills and competence base that is underscored by an understanding of the practical implications and considerations of a complex learning environment and a skill set capable of responding to unpredictable demands.

The Master of Arts in Adult Learning and Teaching is designed to afford teachers who have successfully completed the Professional Diploma in Education (Further Education) to progress their studies. Through the RPL process, students will be awarded a 30 ECTS exemption for advanced entry to the MA on successful completion of the PDE(FE) or equivalent.
