The need for highly-trained, multi-skilled educationalists has never been greater. That’s why the University of Bolton’s MEd Professional Development in Education programme is such a vital cog in the wheel, keeping the sector’s best teachers, lecturers and educational leaders in touch with personal growth.
We rank No.2 in the UK for Teaching Quality in Education Courses*, as well as No.1 for Student Satisfaction in Education in Greater Manchester and the North West.** This makes us a top provider of advanced teacher training courses, and we’ll arm you with a range of skills to improve your practice.
Our Master of Education training ensures that you continue to thrive and grow in your specialist field. Here are some of the skills that we can help you with:
Enhanced critical awareness
Being able to step back and reflect on current issues is something that we focus on. This is vital as it helps education practitioners relate their own skills to the world around, from a social, economic and political perspective. We encourage students to draw from their own experiences in the workplace and share their ideas, thoughts and solutions with their peers.
Another important skill that today’s multi-skilled faculty should possess is being able to find resolutions to problems beyond the classroom. Our modules will guide you as you formulate creative solutions to complex educational issues.
Vital research and evaluation skills
We now live in a world of data, one that can give us a great deal of actionable information to help us improve what we do. This is why research (and knowing how to review it) is such an important skill for the workplace.
Soft skills for leadership
The best teacher training courses don’t just take into account hard skills when it comes to leadership and promotion. For a lot of our Master of Education students, the biggest benefit of training with us is being able to develop a range of soft skills, including team working and collaboration, autonomy, decision-making and professional accountability.
If you’re interested in multi-skill training, our Master of Education course could be for you. As a leading Manchester university that puts students, and their needs first, there’s nowhere better to embark on your professional development journey. We are one of the largest providers of teacher training courses in the UK, and we’re proud to deliver #UniAsItShouldBe.
