How to Hit Your Goals and Reskill: Professional Development in Education

Our Master of Education course for Professional Development in Education is designed for ambitious and passionate individuals looking to reskill for better career opportunities. If you are an experienced educationalist who wants to develop specific skills for senior roles, enrol in January 2021 and join one of the top universities in the country, where we put your needs first.

At the University of Bolton, we’ve been voted No.1 in the North West for Student Satisfaction for the past three years (Complete University Guide in 2021, 2020 and 2019), and also rank in the Top 5 for Teaching Quality across the whole of the UK (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide in 2021 and 2020).

We aim to help you hit your goals in the following ways:

Reskilling for jobs in management

If you are an education practitioner with years of hands-on classroom experience, but you want to build on your skills for progression to more senior roles, our course can help. The MEd Professional Development in Education programme at Bolton University gives you the tools to effectively manage and lead programme development and engage with pedagogical research.

Enhancing your knowledge of best practice

Our Postgraduate course not only allows you develop critical awareness of key issues in the education sector, but you’ll get to explore the principles and theories that underpin best practice in the workplace. From reflecting on your own professional practice to analysing complex educational problems, this programme will arm you with the necessary tools for forming creative solutions to drive positive change in schools, colleges and universities.

Tailoring the course to fit you

We provide a supportive and friendly learning environment so you can thrive, grow and reach your potential. We know our students by name, and not their student number, and we recognise that no two career paths look the same.

By getting to know students and tailoring the course for their needs, we offer effective professional development for teachers at every level. No matter what your personal or professional development goals may be, we help you stay focused from day one. Upon graduation, our dedicated Employability Team will work with you to put you on the right path to success, and hopefully secure you a job.
